Yesterday my Girlfriends computer got this virus, and all programs she tries to open pop up as a security risk with some fake security program.

I followed all of the steps given on this website, and in the end MalwareBytes and Symantec found a virus and removed it. upon restart of my computer, the virus was still there, and following the same steps again, None of our security software finds a virus. Is there another way to fix this issue?

Please help.

Is the Symantec Norton anti virus? If it is and you are running MS security essentials at the same time then this is part of your problem. Running two anti virus programs at the same time will cause problems, like false positives. Disable one of these and then run your scans.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
