    Restart the PC in Safe Mode : Here's How and remove :

    C:\PROGRAM FILES\WHISTLESOFTWARE\WSELSERVICES\WHISTLEHELPER.DLL

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\slmss\ <- this folder
    C:\WINDOWS\fash.exe <- this file
    C:\WINDOWS\mwsvm.exe <- this file
    C:\PROGRAM FILES\STC\ <- this folder

    Restart again in normal mode

    Don't forget to update IE to get the latest security patches at windowsupdate.com.

    Hope this helps

    Cheers,

    You had me take out this file (C:\WINDOWS\mwsvm.exe <- this file) and these 3 are the same name that was with in C:\Windows. Should I remove them too?
    C:\WINDOWS\mwsvm.dat
    C:\WINDOWS\mwsvm.bin
    C:\WINDOWS\mwsvm.ocx

    Hi Duckwalk,

    Your log is clean so you do not need to delete anything.

    I suggest you scan regularly with AdAware and or Spybot to pick up the inactive and (by itself) harmless debris as soon as they add this for detection.

    Regards,

    Pieter
