Virus Protector Scareware

My farther in law’s laptop recently contracted the Virus Protector virus/scareware. Virus Protector is one of those fake security programs that uses scare messages to scam the unwary victims to buy their fake product. The scare messages are many, flooding the desktop every few seconds making it unusable. I used the great guide over at malwarehelp.org to remove it  -> http://www.malwarehelp.org/virus-protector-removal-2010.html
