what i have done so far is the following:
i went into safe mode and was able to uninstall the WPP by running add/remove programs from the run command. i also went into program files and deleted the WPP folder.
i think went and edited the registery to fix the exe issue. i restarted the computer opened up task manager and ended the svchast.exe.
after doing that i installed malwarebyte, after updating it i went to run a scan and after a few seconds the program ended. did some searching and saw that i should rename mbam to winlogon.exe. did that but the program shutdown again. tried to rename to something different with no change.
so next i downloaded and installed super antispyware. this was able to run and found several items which i believe it removed as after rebooting the pc svchast.exe was no longer showing up in the task manager.
after rebooting the pc i installed malwarebyte and went to run it, after a few seconds the program shutsdown again. i went to run super antispyware again only to find that it is not able to run. i unistalled antispyware and tried to install it again but now it won't let me run the program.
next i tried to run highjackthis but it just basically does the same thing as malwarebyte.
i'm basically out of ideas, so any suggestions would be great.
