I was tired as heck last night, and stupidly clicked something I shouldn't have. Now I've got 2 icons in the task bar, one a red shield with a white X and the other a red circle with a white X. The shield loves to pop up with a message (something to the effect of danger! there are some serious security threats detected on your computer) and if clicked will open a fake security center that will start installing coreguard 2009, and the large circle will attempt to install Coreguard 2009 if selected in any way without the fake security center screen. Task manager shows an instance of wscsvc32.exe, and randomly a fun window with a face security center alert will pop up, but instead of the keep blocking/unblock/ignore options in the real thing it gives keep blocking/unblock/Enable Protection, and that of course tries to install coreguard 2009. In normal mode I can't run regedit, the system claims I don't have security privileges. An instance of iexplore.exe will also pop up in task manager, although it's not a visible window. When I boot into safe mode the problem is still there, same popups/taskbar icons, and winlogon.exe takes up a constant 99% CPU at high priority making it a nuisance to try and do anything. I believe that's it for the symptoms, I haven't allowed any of the coreguard installs (it tries to do it automatically if you let the window open) to finish.

I have tried the basic steps listed under coreguard, although I don't have the link handy it was from bleepingcomputer. I downloaded smitfraudfix and booted into safe mode, but it won't run/install. It crashes out with a this program has encountered errors. I also downloaded Malwarebyte's anti-malware, but when I run it the spam screens automatically come up, and mbam.exe sits in task manager doing nothing, and I never get a screen for it. Out of curiosity I renamed it 1.exe thinking the virus might be blocking certain executable names, and after a reinstall in safe mode it actually did install, but with errors. It won't run or update, nor would it properly uninstall. Vundofix is from a long time ago, I had fun with that one too.

I do have HJT and I downloaded CF, but I haven't run it since I've no clue what it (cf) actually does. Here is my DDS log file in normal mode.

Any help is greatly appreciated,

Wow, somehow forgot to mention I have Mcafee installed and have ran it, it fails to fix 2 files, and all the files it does claim to fix are back again after a restart and rescan (which takes forever!).
