First malware I have had in about 7 years that I have known about at least. I have a small home network with 4 pc's on this one desk alone and several others behind routers and have really never had any virus issues. I don't visit odd websites or click things I shouldn't.
Anyhow this machine just popped up the Security Tool software one day and it's been worse and worse, shutting down services, hiding my desktop, endless popups about a million viruses I have ever time I try to open anything including Task Manager.
I thought I would give this removal a shot just to save reinstalling the 30 programs I use on it. Thanks for any help. I did read the post step by step, didn't do anything in safe mode.
If I rebooted my machine it's almost unusable unless I can control shift escape and end the random numbered process before it takes over!
