I am trying to remove the Microsoft Security Essential malware. I've looked at other topics with respect to removing, but they're not working for me. The rkill.com program is not working. I ran it and the command window just goes away. I tried running Anti Malwarebytes anyway, but after re-booting, the malware is still there. I then proceeded to follow the instructions in the preparation guide - see below. I rebooted into Safe Mode and ran Rkill.com and the only process it killed was rkill.com. I am currently running anti-malwarebytes in Safemode because I thought I would try something while posting this on another comptuer.
I've also tried to follow the "preparation guide" as closely as possible.
I disabled CD emulation software
I ran the DDS, but it's not working, no reports are generated. I don't know if I have any "script-blocking" programs, so I wouldn't know how to disable them. This may be why it's not working.
I ran GMER - ark.txt is attached
Thanks again for any help you can give me. This thing is a BEAR!!
Well, after running rkill.com and malwarebytes both in safe mode, my computer is at least running for now. After messing with it for 8 hours I finally get it working after I post.
I will continue to look for it and clean it up, but are there any other processes I need to run/look for? Would the paid version of malwarebytes have prevented this?
