  1. Hey everyone I need some help! Today I noticed a program in my programs list that said sprotector 1.62 and nothing else. No manufacturer name or any of the normal info. It had an install date of 8/2012. Thinking it seemed suspicious I went to google and surprisingly theres little information about this. Some sites say it's perfectly fine while others say it's a horrible trojan.killav virus. Can someone please tell me how to successfully install all of it's components on my system? None of the anti virus or malware softwares that I have ran have caught it. So far I've ran a trend micro scan, spydoctor, malware bytes, AVG and I"m running avast right now. Also another strange thing is the icon that is next to the sprotector when I go to control panel/ uninstall is the same icon as the anvir windows manager that I downloaded yesterday, but like I said sprotector says downloaded august and anvir was downloaded yesterday 12/17 from CNET as one of the top must have applications for windows. Please help! I'm pretty experienced with most aspects of a computer but I do need very specific step by step instructions please!!

    • Please do not ask for help elsewhere (in this site or other sites). Doing so can result in system changes, which may not show up in the logs you post.

    Please review the 4-Step instructions and post the logs back here for my review.

    Also, include this scan:

    Download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your Desktop.
    • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
