Yesterday I received a couple of notices that mcafee had removed a trojan from my computer. A short time later I get a pop up about WIN 7 INTERNET SECURITY 2012 and how its found all kinds of virus's and that I should purchase the full program to vanquish the problems. I have seen similar malware before. I rebooted into safe mode used. I used rkill, it seemed to take away but it didn't kill any processes according to its report. I then ran malwarebytes, it removed a dozen or so files at the completion of the scan. After that was all said and done I rebooted my computer and it seemed to work properly(although a bit slower than usual). Later I got a couple of more notices about mcafee removing a trojan from my computer, then mcafee popped up and told me my computer was at risk, I checked it out and my firewall and real-time scanning were turned off. I re-enabled them and it they stayed on for a couple of seconds and turned off again with out any input from me. I got onto bleepingcomputer.com for a little more info. I found the tutorial for the removal of the aforementioned WIN 7 INTERNET SECURITY 2012. I downloaded the .reg file, iexplore, and malwarebytes all from a clean computer to a clean drive. I followed the guide, rkill again didn't find any processes to kill, and this time malwarebytes didn't find anything to remove, but mcafee is still turning itself off and the computer is running very slow, I am typing faster than the computer displays the characters. Please let me know what I can do to fix this problem.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

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