I removed the program, MalwareProtectionLive.exe but, the related file, MalwareProtectionClient.exe remains in Windows/Temp and the hidden folder remains in Documents and Settings/Compaq_Owner which I believe is titled "Local Settings" and contains data on my antivirus and some of my antimalware programs. I have yet to delete these related files for fear that it may screw up my system.

Any advice would be appreciated.
