I am getting the "Microsoft Security Essentials Alert" I found the link for it and have been trying to use that. When I run rkill or under the alerternate names it still pops up. I'm in SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING.

What do I do now?

Any thoughts? I tried restarting and also bringing malwarebytes over on memory stick and that wouldn't run. I have a option to restart computer with only original software should I do that?

In this guide does RKill list a process it kills, if so did you then immediately run MBAM, update it and run a scan and let it remove any infection?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

No rkill will not even run. I double click it and then it opens an immediately the Microsoft essentials warning comes up again and I'm in safe mode

I used one of the renamed RKill from this page to kill the active process so I could run MBAM

Unless you are forgetting to run the RKill as an administrator in Vista or Windows 7 then we need to refer you to our experts.

Hello,

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<==

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then post back here and we will provide you with further instructions.

Often with these newer infections, a flatten and rebuild is the best and quickest way to go, many have a lot of trouble with that tho.
