Warning you have a problem (another)

  1. My son just downloaded the "Virus Remover2009" virus.

    I use MCaffee virusScan Enterprise + AntiSpyware Enterprise. I'm a little disapointed that it missed this.

    I ran NVT Malware removal tool twice. The first time it caught & dleted a file associated with the virus. (it only reported the one file) I then went throught some manual removal steps that I found. Kill process - Delete Registry Keys- Remove files, but didn't fand any of the listed files, keys etc. Did NVT remove them while only reporting the one? I didn't save the log.

    I did this while logged to my sons desktop & all looked well. Then When I logged into my own desktop the Virus Remove 2009 appears to be gone but it seems to have left over the "Warning- You have a Security Problem" balloon...every 20 secs or so. It tries to open
    hxxp:// (I changed the tt to xx) but can't find it.

    I read another post here similar & I'll run the 8 step program & report back with some logs.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
