"9.Once it is downloaded, double-click on the rkill.com in order to automatically attempt to stop any processes associated with AV Security Suite and other Rogue programs. Please be patient while the program looks for various malware programs and ends them. When it has finished, the black window will automatically close and you can continue with the next step. If you get a message that rkill is an infection, do not be concerned. This message is just a fake warning given by AV Security Suite when it terminates programs that may potentially remove it. If you run into these infections warnings that close Rkill, a trick is to leave the warning on the screen and then run Rkill again. By not closing the warning, this typically will allow you to bypass the malware trying to protect itself so that rkill can terminate AV Security Suite . So, please try running Rkill until the malware is no longer running. You will then be able to proceed with the rest of the guide. If you continue having problems running rkill.com, you can download iExplore.exe or eXplorer.exe, which are renamed copies of rkill.com, and try them instead."
I was able to download Rkill to my desktop. I also downloaded "iExplore.exe" and eXplorer.exe.
When I run the program, the following happens:
1. I double click Rkill.
2. A black MS Dos prompt opens (Rkill Program). It runs for a few seconds before closing. I barely have a chance to read what the prompt says.
3. Following this, notepad opens with the following rkill.log:
"This log file is located at C:\rkill.log.
Please post this only if requested to by the person helping you.
Otherwise you can close this log when you wish.

Processes terminated by Rkill or while it was running:
Rkill completed on 09/02/2010 at 13:29:12."
So now I'm starting to think maybe Rkill isn't working. Or maybe it is, and it's just a very quick running program? I've run MBAM three times afterward and havent found any viruses. When I back out of safe mode and go back to the normal computer using mode, the virus is still there...
I've been in Safe Mode with Networking while doing the above tasks..
What should I do from this point?
