My daughters Toshiba Satellite seems to be infected with a fake WINDOWS SECURITY CENTER update that turns into VISTA ANTIVIRUS 2012 which then prompted her to run and install a security update. I have tried to control-alt-delete thru Task Manager and then run Malwarebytes both in normal and in Safe mode but it will not allow any of the antispyware to launch. Can someone please direct me on how to unistall this bugger?

Thank you.
