I have just tried to remove virusprotectpro following the instructions on this site. It seems to have worked, but I am not 100% sure because what I had seemed to be different to what the instructions expected.
I used the manual process as I could not get into safe mode originally.
When I double-clicked FixVPP, Notepad opened. It didn't ask me anything.
The file I had was nuqjici.
When I tried Add or Remove Programs, Virusprotectpro was not listed so could not be uninstalled.
When running SmitfraudFix, I selected 2 and let it go. After less than a minute, it reported it could not clean a file because it was in use. I did not know whether it had continued to clean the rest of the disk or had stopped because of the error.
After it had finished, there was no red screen as described.
Does all this sound normal, or is there something screwy going on with this machine?
