I recently discovered that I had the fake microsoft security essentials on my computer when I 1st noticed it I wasn't able to open anything on my computer, couldn't open my Internet, couldn't play none of my games etc. So I ran my antivirus program norton...I believe that it found part of the virus but when it tried to get rid of it, it crashed it was able to delete some of it and I was able to open some of the programs that I couldn't before but the virus is still there and norton can't find the virus anymore) That's when I came across this website and rkill, but rkill isn't working, I try to run it and this virus shuts it down instantly...can somebody pls help me
