          Hello

          Download Malwarebytes ' Anti-Malware from Here or Here Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.

          * Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
          * If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
          * Once the program has loaded, select Perform Full Scan, then click Scan.
          * The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient.
          * When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
          * Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
          * When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart (see Extra Note below).
          * The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
          * Copy & paste the entire report into your next reply.

          Extra Note:
          If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

            Dear paullotion,
            I tried Malwarebytes ' Anti-Malware to solve this issue. But still the problem is existing. I found the solution for buffer overflow protection error message. I download the patch for windows XP SP2 in the mentioned site [SIZE="2"]http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/ms08-067.mspx[/SIZE]

            I applied to all the machines which had the problem with buffer over flow protection. The problem was resolved. Thanks for youe support.

            Regards

                Yes, thanks for letting us know that keeping your computer up to date regarding Windows Updates is ALWAYS a good security move, especially for corporate networks. The patch you applied should have been installed during the normal Windows Update cycle. I would certainly be checking why all those affected systems weren't up to date.

                Hope this helps.
