++ you can easily find out if your mod is installed or not. go to your admin panel > general admin > configuration , and look for the lines when the "security question" (and the answer) should be entered by forum admin. If you can see them, try entering a simple question and the correct answer.
After that, just log out and try to register as new user. Try to register answering the question, and try to register without answering the question , just to be sure.
++If you see the mod is working, you must delete all those files as instructed. The changes are done, your SQL is updated, files are useless.
p.s. You have posted a working link to an executable php file that is placed inside your ftp. This is not a smart thing to do since anyone can re-execute it now and mess your SQL. Remove this link !!!!!!!
