Removing The "Win 7 Home Security 2012" Malware--
After reading the Kaspwersky Lab Forum entries here: Kaspersky Support Forum
I tried the suggestions there and they worked for me. i hope this also works for you!
Removing this malware takes a few steps to complete, but is simple and effective.
Since this malware does not allow internet access or allow you to execute programs, you must use another computer to download a Kaspersky utility.
(Although there are many solutions to this problem out there, I preferred Kaspersky's solution for it's simplicity and the fact that they provided a free utility to solve a similar infection my computer had last year.)
Step 1: download the following file onto an SD card (USB drive may work also) using another computer with internet access to allow your computer to again execute programs.
Step 2: Remove the SD card and insert it into the infected computer and run the com file
You will now be able to access the internet (don't reboot the computer or the malware will take control again.)
Step 3: Download, install and run MalwareBytes to remove the malware:
Tell the program to remove all detected malware, then reboot the computer when prompted to do so.
The malware should now be removed.
After this I removed MalwareBytes and installed Microsoft Security Essentials.

Moved from Win 7 to AV, Firewall, etc.
