i tried to follow the instructions you have for uninstalling "total security", but not only can i not use the task manager, but it willnot let me install the mcrosoft program process explorer that you recommend. this spyware lets me download, but not install. it says anything i try to install is infected. i have tried spybot search and destroy, but it will not let me even open the program. it says application cannot be executed the file SpybotSD.exe is infected please activate your antivirus software. Of course the spyware they want me to actiate is theirs. (fraudulent)
