Despite all the warnings about not clicking on the unexpected blinky pop-up things, my kids managed to get hold of some Malware that replaced our wallpaper with ahtm.htm. It's preventing malware and virus scans (I use Trend Micro PC Cillin real-time, and Malware Bytes as needed.) The computer is on its knees, just keeps locking up when logged in normally. It works halfway decently in safe mode. I've removed its wifi adapter to keep it off the web. I'm posting this from my "work" laptop, and can transfer files back and forth via USB drive.

I've seen quiet a few web pages describing ways to get rid of this thing, but none have helped.

How to I get rid of it?
