I picked up Vista Home Security malware today, and have been unable to remove it. It runs in safe mode as well and prevents any program to open. It also made "Internet options" disappear from the control panel.
I did manage to run RKill but it did not find anything and failed to disable the malware in order for me to run my anti malware programs.
I tried launching anti-malware programs (malwarebytes, spybot) from a flash drive, to no avail.
Looking at my task manager, everytime I try to launch a program, the following malware process launches itself: xxt.exe.
Please help, I am getting desperate!
