I just recently got this on my new computer as well. 2 questions:

I read to download MBAM and run it, but do I want to make sure I'm in safe mode before I do that?

The computer is like fresh out of the box new, would things be easier for myself to just format the HD and use the recovery discs. I have little background with computers in case that changes either option.

Boozie, considering your computer is brand new, I would just reinstall it.

I just got the same problem, but ut;s antivirus 2008. Same removal instructions apply. I ran it, and it seemed to remove it, but I still can't do cntrl/alt/delete, it gives an error saying admisnitrator isn't allowing, and also if I try to get into regedit. Any help here?

What exactly does it say? This?

"Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator"

This fix seems to have done it.I must ask this question,should i have wiped all the previous restore points?This just crossed my brain.

Perhaps someone should take a look at hijacking threads here!This is a great site don't get me wrong :thumbsup: It's just that when you starts a thread it can get changed and different questions asked and this can get confusing that's all.Have a good one. :flowers:

Newchap, all restore points should be cleared when, and only, after you have finished cleaning your computer of infections. If you feel you are clean, then go ahead and disable/enable system restore.
