Please help me get rid of "System Security", a rogue spyware program. I will not bother to describe this malware because there is already a detailed description posted to the Malware spyware removal guide forum (see http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/malware-re...ystem-security).
I have read the post about getting rid of this, and I've downloaded Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBAM) software and run it twice and it does not get rid of it. Each time I run MBAM, it identifies the rogue software, but even when I try to remove it, it's still there! I have also run Avast! and Troja Remover--nothing works! Here is my DDS log (I'm attaching the "attach" file unzipped because it's so small):

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer my name is BHowett and I will be helping you get sorted.

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know.

If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine. If you have not done so, include a description of your problem, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results, click no to the Optional_Scan
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run.
