I followed the instructions on this site to remove Win 7 Antispyware 2012. It removed most of the infection and nothing additional is appearing when I use Malware Bytes, McAfee Stinger, and Spybot. I am still having problems starting my Windows Firewall, though. When I go to McAfee's Security Center it says that computer is not protected because my firewall is not on. When I click the button to turn it on, it turns on, but then goes off a few seconds later. I found a few registry keys that may be causing this, but I am reluctant to change them. I guess I could backup my registry then make the change, but that still makes me nervous. Any suggestions?
