Yesterday I got infected with fake Security Center / Anti-virus type malware that has disabled my task manager, won't let me run almost any executable file (I have even tried renaming ComboFix and Malwarebytes and that doesn't work), and gives me a blue screen of death when I try to run in safe mode. I have identified through a search one of the components of this infection: wscsvc32.exe. I renamed and deleted that file, but I am still very much infected. Again, I cannot run any anti-malware program - I get a message that says, "Application cannot be executed. The file ______.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?" The "title" to this box says "Security Warning." Some of the random pop-ups I get are one for "Antivirus System Pro alert" and another that says "Spyware Alert !" where it asks if I want to activate antivirus system pro or stay unprotected. PLEASE HELP - THANKS!
In addition, I have tried to run several executables under the "run" tab to restore my task manager, and it will NOT let me run anything, from REGEDIT to taskmgr.exe, etc, etc.
One more thing that may be important in describing this: In my task bar, I have a red circle with a white x that keeps bringing up a bubble that says, "Click here to protect your computer from spyware!" with some other information below it. Also, there is a shield-looking object that is grey and silver in the task bar that also comes out with pop up "bubbles" on how my computer is infected.
