    Go to your start button and select “all programs”. Find “system tools”. I found them in accessories. Select ” restore system”. Follow the easy instructions and reset your computer the a day earlier than “smart internet protection” appeared. It's gone. Very simple.
    Good Luck

    Shouldn't “CheckExeSignatures” = 'no' be changed to 'yes' rather than being deleted?
