My computer was infected with the Fake Microsoft Security Essentials pop-up on my desktop. I used the rkill process to kill the pop-up, then ran a full scan on my computer with Malwarebytes. It found 14 threats, and I removed them. I thought doing all this would kill the Fake MSE infection, but it didn't. It is still their. I then went and did the rkill process again (to allow me to get into the internet since it was blocking my access). Now the infection has blocked my ability to even type words in the internet. Does anyone have any solution to kill this infections for good? Very frustrating. Thank you.

Hello, I am not sure what this means... Now the infection has blocked my ability to even type words in the internet

Can you get online?

Can you post the Malwarebytes,MBAM log?
The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
