My computer has the Microsoft Security Essentials fake alert,and it downloaded the Whitesmoke translator a virus. I removed the translator and was able to function in safe mode, but it stopped every AV I tired to run and Malwarebytes. My computer keeps rebooting and i can no longer start in safe mode. I tried R Kill it did nothing now im not able to get on and I want my information off this computer to avoid a reformat.

Hello! :)

I am Blind Faith or Elle(it's easier to remember,I think) and I will help you with your malware related problems.
As you can see I am still a trainee and that means my work is revised by a coach.
Therefore, it will take a bit longer for me to reply.
So don't be impatient because I won't leave your case suspended in the air,waiting forever.

NOTE: Do not make any type of changes to your system during the cleaning process.The steps you are following are based on strict information from your system.So changes which I did not give instructions for are not recommended.

I will need some time to research the files on your system so please click the Watch topic button at the top bar of this topic, where you should choose email notifications to know when I replied.

Remember to check your topic for new replies.

Probably, it will take a couple of days until the next reply but after that everything will go faster.

Also please let me know if you still need help after you have read this.

Can you hear it?It's all around!
