Please tell me where to start!

Proably should start a post in Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs as well, following the preparation procedures at the top. Often times these fake AV programs are the payload of another piece of malware. TDDS variants and TDL3 rootkit infections are notorious for this kind of behavior. You end up with one piece of fake AV software today, then tomorrow you get another, all because the infection is downloading new malware to your machine and installing them in the background.

Hi, well remote desktop works. I tried running rkill and the other 2 many times, even renamed them, but it wont stop the thing from popping up.
I'm going to copy/paste the malware bytes setup to the desktop. Nasty! msconfig keeps filling up with startup items.

Any other way to kill the process?

OK, finally got Mbytes installed and scanning, whew.
It logged me off while installing updates, so I installed again.
Fingers crossed. :thumbsup:

I split out your logs and placed them here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic350807.html

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MR Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
