I picked up the Security Essentials 2010 bug a week ago. I was able to delete it and reset all the changes it made to my system (wallpaper, task manager, etc.); but since then, Symentec Endpoint Protection has been blocking a lot of Tidserv requests and occasionally I am redirected when using Google. Another problem is that IE will start on its own once or twice a day. I have run MalWareBytes and rKill to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.
