Windows Security Centre Firewall - My Security Engine

    I have recently followed advice from the Net to rid my system of the malware
    "My Security Engine" (I even needed to replace the "hosts" file).
    Unfortunately, even when I have Windows Firewall turned off (via Control
    Panel), Windows Security Centre still shows that I have a Firewall On with
    the message "My Security Engine is currently ON". I am concerned that this
    virus/spyware is still resident and active in my computer. Is there some way
    I can completely remove all affects of this very troublesome virus.

  2. Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2;
    Vista SP1; Vista 64-bit SP2; Win7; Win7 64-bit) when posting in a forum or
    newsgroup. Please do so in your next reply.

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)?

    Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
    computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?

    If you still feel the malware is resident, then heed the advice at the
    very bottom of the above page.
