The link to the instructions: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-remo...-total-security
Total Security has gotten smarter and now won't allow most processes or applications to run. Nothing I tried at first would allow me to end the Total Security process. Total Security shut down anything I tried to run... like hijackthis, malwarebytes, spybot, adware etc....
I surmized, that total security will not allow you to run any exe programs other than a few it knows about.
My solution was to rename the ProcessExplorer file..... Procexp.exe to iexplore.exe. (Download process explorer from Microsoft on a different computer if you have to.).... renaming to other file names like explorer.exe may work too.
After doing that I was able to end the process and proceed with process.
I think Grinler has edited his instructions so everything is good.
Thanks to Grinler for posting the instructions.
