After repairing "broken" pc running Win XP SP2,all seemed well.
However,I noticed that the Product ID in the My Computer/Properties/ System Properties/General has been corrupted and reads "VIRUS ALERT !"
Although the system runs OK, and viruses/trojans appear to have been removed by using several Antivirus and Malware programs (Avg,Avira ,Avast ... ) and there appear to be no errant programs running.
-this problem refuses to go away.
Regedit appears to show the correct ID-unless I have missed an entry.
Any Ideas how to correct this annoyance without a clean install.?
