I was infected with System Security 2012 just last night. I was able to remove most of it by using Malwarebytes, however rkill and iexplorer didn't help. I just used malwarebytes to remove it. Everything seems fine as I can surf the web and not have any annoying pop ups, the only problem is I can't go on google.com or yahoo.com. It says that I am still infected and that I should activate system protection. [screenshot attached] I can access the rest of my computer fine and I get no pop ups nor do I see System Security on my desktop or in my start menu. I have kept running mbam and last it ran, it removed 2 files. I mainly use firefox.
Thank you for the help,
I also have the full version of mbam, so I'm surprised this hit my laptop in the 1st place. I have a Windows XP on this laptop.
