I searched all over the internet for steps to remove it. I came accross this forum link http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=218986

As you will see the first thing the above thread tells you to run is Super Antispyware. http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=127217
So I ran that program, and quarantined/removed all of the suspicious files that the program had found. The program than said to reboot, and so I did. When it rebooted it would get passed the windows logo screen, stay black for about ten seconds, and than reboot. The computer just keeps doing this. I even tried safe mode but the same thing occurs.
I ran the Windows Recovery Console and ran chkdsk /r. It came up with found one or more errors. I inserted the windows cd to the drive to repair, and couln't press F12 to get to the CD to repair windows.
II pressed F1 to enter setup. I changed the primary boot from the hard drive to CD-ROM drive. I was able to get to the Windows CD, and went through the process of repairing Windows. When my computer rebooted I got this message on a green screen (picture also attached):
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appers again, follow these steps:
Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturere for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.
Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as chacing or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.
*** STOP: 0X0000007E (0XC0000005, 0X004D0004, 0XF7A26A8C, 0XF7A2678C)
Any help or directions on how to fix this?
Thank you everyone in advance for you help!
