I have a particular new version of the same thing that has been going around. The Police pro/windows antivirus 2009 and others. It is called Alpha antivirus. It has a program running in task manager called csrss.exe that will not let me stop. PC is running Vista home. I was able to run Malwarebytes and now it doesn't find any problems, but the problem is still there. Most programs stop working and I get a mesage about them. Running combofix in safe mode works, but I get a bsod (blue screen of death) about 20% into it. I hope this is a common problem and I am just an idiot. Any help would be greatly appriciated.

Download this file and save it to your desktop:

Double-click the file to run it. A command window will open briefly. Then run a quick scan with Malwarebytes. Post the Malwarebytes log.

I found a fix. I did a system restore and was able to get a good scan with malwarebytes and combofix. Apparently some of the key system files were corrupted and limited my ability to clean the system. Not fun at all, but a learning expirience none the less.
Thanks for the reply.
