Yesterday, I noticed the icon "Security Protection" appear on my desktop. I tried to run malewarebytes immediately but I got an error message saying that I do not have the permissions.

I googled it, and then followed the instructions here:

That included downloading and running TDSSKiller and RKill. Both programs found and removed things. TDSSKiller was never able to permanently remove something (it would appear again after restart). I uninstalled and reinstalled malewarebytes and in safe mode it found four things. When I tried to run it again in normal mode it did not work.

Back in safe mode, I reinstalled malewarebytes again and it found zero infections. Since then I have been unable to run malewarebytes again. If I reinstall it I can get it to launch but it will shut down even before it has a chance to look at the registry.

windows task manager shows the process 1106687295.3226077630.exe but I have been unable to end the process. TDSSKiller found the filename 1106687295 and marked it as suspicious. After I search on my computer, I deleted them from my windows folder and my prefetch folder.

I have also tried FixExe and FixNCR.

The symptoms aren't so bad. Google redirect and the computer won't shut down when I close the laptop. Otherwise I never got any notices saying that I was full of infections.

Thank you for your help!

With the information you have provided I believe you will need help from the malware removal team.
Please make sure that you read the information about getting started first.
Then start a new thread HERE and include or required logs.
Including a link to this thread will be helpful.

Good luck and be patient. Help is on the way!

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic416442.html you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
