Hello Everyone,

I am receiving microsoft security essentials warnings,
stating that I have a trojan virus on my windows xp system.
I have tried rkill and it doesn't execute.
I ran it multiple times as advised on this site, but it doesn't execute.
I ran it as guest user and it ran but did not pick up the infected file.
I copied a fresh rkill file(from another computer) and renamed it, still no luck.

I had this happen before and successfully used rkill and mbam to remove the malware.
I'm lost as to why I can't get the software to execute.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Type "Remove Fake Microsoft Security Essentials" into youtube and you'll get a lot of great videos that describe several ways to get rid of the infection. I used a few of them combined for my own personal strategy. I recommend the videos by mcbeatbox937, serj, and teesupport lab.
