Important! Depending on the Operating System of your workstation, %UserProfile% stands for C:\Documents and Settings\[Current User] for Windows XP and C:\Users\[Current User] for Windows Vista/7.
In other words, the folder that must be opened is as follows, depending on the OS of your computer:
%SysDrive%Documents and Settings[Current User]Application Data\Microsoft for Windows XP
%SysDrive%Users[Current User]Application Data\Microsoft for Windows Vista/7.
In this folder there will be the main executable file of Windows Protection Alarm rogue (possibly with the icon of *avi file), having some random name.
