I have tried everything suggested. I use a US Cellular air card for internet connection and can’t seem to connect for updates in safe mode. I have used Malware Bytes, CCleaner, Avira, Norton eraser(says it needs live connection),Trojan Cleaner, etc. None worked. I tried to use the recovery tool 2 days earlier. from safe mode. It shut down saying that my computer was in danger of being destroyed. I searched and looked and can’t seem to find (Windows 7: c:\Users\All Users\AppData\Roaming\[gibberish])I just don’t know where to look. I am at a loss here.

Roger :
It is VERY easy to get rid of the MS Removal Tool.
1. Run Windows update and apply all listed critical patches.
2. Reboot
3. Go to one of the paths listed below and delete the directory the exe is in:
Windows XP: c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\[gibberish]
Windows 7: c:\Users\All Users\AppData\Roaming\[gibberish]
This application is taking advantage of a known security hole in Windows, if you patch windows it will close the hole.
I have followed this procedure on 3 of my friends PCs.
This will teach you all to keep windows fully patched.

Where and how do I run windows update from safe mode. I can’t do anything if I am not in safe mode.I spent all day trying to get this fixed. Help Please
