Thank you for your help. Appreciate your followup and keenness in trying to resolve this error.

Panda scan was taking a couple of hours. So I used to start the scan and leave it to complete. By the time I come back after 5 hrs, the system is used to be in sleeping mode. Atlast I was able to get the report from the scan initiated this morning.

Please find here with Panda Active Scan log

Incident Status Location

Potentially unwanted tool:Application/Processor Not disinfected D:\Documents and Settings\admin\Desktop\SDFix.exe[SDFix\apps\Process.exe]
Potentially unwanted tool:Application/Processor Not disinfected D:\SDFix\SDFix\apps\Process.exe

I could see that .exe's in SD Fix are the ones that were installed as a part of this cleaning mechanisim.
Not sure whether they need to be uninstalled / deleted.

Please advise for the next course of action(s).
