Unhappy Microsoft.WindowsSecurityCenter.FirewallOverride

ok, hey all!

first of all, i am not a majorgeek lol, and a reply with lots of technical words will leave me more confused then i possibly already am haha

my problem is of 2 very annoying viruses.. it has been an on-goin battle for several weeks.

i have CCleaner, S&D, SpywareDoc, AdwareAE, and SUPERanti spyware

and lets face it these above are amazing at keeping my computer clean =)

however.. 2 clever little viruses seem to be destroying my computer.
one likes to disquise itself as wuaualt.exe (and is becoming increasing difficult to delete) the 2nd is Microsoft.WindowsSecurityCenter.FirewallOverride (everytime i delete it, it comes back)

i was having problems from a third virus..MyWay.MyWebSearch but i have either managed to delete it manually or it is clever and hiding from scans (as it doesn't show up anymore in S&D scans)

i update my spyware's/adware's etc everytime i run them. but these 2 viruses are becoming problem childs lol

if u cud help me in like the simplest of forms that would be great.

Exactly what are you referring to. Did you mean what you typed or did you mean wuauclt.exe which is just Windows Update and sometime you will see two of them running. As long as it is running from the C:\windows\system32 folder it should be fine.

You are misinterpreting what Spybot is telling you. This is not a virus. Spybot is merely stating that this setting is no longer set to the default setting. It is not a problem. This normally occurs when you install your own security software.

If you think you have malware problems or really just want to find out if you are clean then please follow the instructions in the READ & RUN ME FIRST link given futher down and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.
  • If you have problems where no tools seem to run, please try following the steps given in the below and then continue on no matter what you find. You only need to try the TDSSserv steps if having problems getting scans in the Read & Run Me First.
  • If something does not run, write down the info to explain to us later but keep on going.
  • Do not assume that because one step does not work that they all will not.
READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide
  • After completing the READ & RUN ME and attaching your logs, make sure that you tell us what problems still remain ( if any still do )!
Helpful Notes:
  1. If you run into problems trying to run the READ & RUN ME or any of the scans in normal boot mode, you can run the steps in safe boot mode but make sure you tell us what you did later when you post logs. See the below if you do not know how to boot in safe mode:
  2. If you have problems downloading on the problem PC, download the tools and the manual updates for SUPERAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes and Spybot ( links are given in the READ & RUN ME) onto another PC and then burn to a CD. Then copy them to the problem PC. You will have to skip getting updates if (and only if) your internet connection does not work. Yes you could use a flash drive too but flash drives are writeable and infections can spread to them.
  3. To avoid additional delay in getting a response, it is strongly advised that after completing the READ & RUN ME you also read this sticky:
Any additional post is a bump which will add more delay. Once you attach the logs, your thread will be in the work queue and as stated our system works the oldest threads FIRST.
