"System Fix" popped up on my computer. I ran Malwarebytes which actually deleted the main file to System Fix (I no longer get the System Fix popup(s) that tries to tell me how infected my computer is).

However I know something is still wrong because:

a) real-time antivirus still warns me its blocking something from modifying host.

B) all rkill downloads get terminated and deleted, regardless if I run it from USB stick/hard drive/ desktop (tried all 6 filenames I believe).
If I run them from DVD drive, it just terminates them since it cannot delete it. I even changed the filenames myself with zero luck. Also tried running them from cmd prompt and it deletes them just the same.

c) system restore doesnt work. tried many different dates.

Also I did run TDSSkiller in safe mode, but it didnt find anything wrong.

I believe one of the filenames responsible was OKFawEgyTV.exe as I saw it on my taskbar when the infection first started.

For anyone searching this problem that might be wondering how I got RKill to run: I think MBAM already eliminated the actual system fix malware at this point.

Downloaded a free program called Process Explorer, there is a process called atieclxx.exe that is protected under task manager, however Process Explorer shows a child process by same name...Terminate it, then run Rkill. After this I was running MBAM when about 30 minutes later, Microsoft Security Essentials Real Time found 2 viruses and I eliminated them.

RKill does not remove malware. It stops malware and sometimes other processes from running so you can run malware removal tools. For more information, please read this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic308364.html
