Hello,

I recently obtained the Microsoft Security Essentials Alert Virus which acts as an antivirus software on my computer. Everytime i try to open any program/file it says that its the virus on my computer. In Safe Mode without networking the virus pops up immediatly when my computer boots up. I tried to follow the insturctions on this link http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html in order to show the diagnostics of my computer but i can not get the internet to run or any program for that matter. I have done a lot of research on this site and saw the different RKill's you can download to close the processes the virus continually runs. This was ineffective and i am at a complete loss. The RKills i have used so far are iExplorer.exe eXplorer.exe rkill.com rkill.exe rkill.scr rkill.pif and then i just tried random names in front of each format of extension. At this point I need some direction of where i can go from here. Could you please help me with the next steps i can take to get around this virus? I am running with Windows Xp Media Center Edition Version 2002.

thanks,
Donald Trumpet

After a couple hours of trial and error methods i finally got the rkill to run. This topic can be deleted.
