I have tried the posted solution as seen here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-remo...imalware-doctor

However, I was unable to complete the steps. It blocks rkil, iExplore and eXplorer from running. I can see the command prompt window briefly and then it closes and a message pops up saying the application cannot be executed. The file rkill.exe (or whichever I am trying) is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?

Naturally, I click no and try again to no avail. I've tried leaving this open when running the app again but this does not work either. I was able to install MalwareBytes but it blocks this from running as well.

I tried opening Task Manager to force quit but it blocks that. Also, tried opening System Restore but that is blocked as well.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Running Windows 7 64 bit

Oh I also am using a secondary computer as I shut off the wireless adapter on the infected system

EDIT: I was able to run Malwarebytes in Safe Mode. Will update results when scan is finished.

EDIT: This seems to have fixed the problem. This thread can be closed
