Yes, you can end the process. You can also uninstall Tiny Personal Firewall How far does the boot get? Did you just install that program?

Also, please do not post in all CAPS - it's the forum equivalent of SHOUTING

You should start your system in safemode and run combofix.

EDIT: Anyone reading this topic. Please DO NOT follow the above advice. Only trained malware helpers are permitted to suggest ComboFix.

@fixtro Please see this topic that gives Instructions for offering assistance with malware tools: How do I get help? Who is helping me? What advice can be given in this forum ~ Animal

Please do NOT run combofix unless specifically requested to by someone on our Malware Removal Team.
Combofix is not something that should be run unsupervised.
In the beginning there was the command line.
