I have never heard of this program before, but in any case boot into safe mode by tapping the F8 key as soon as bios begins to post and before Windows begins to start.

Run the scan in safe mode.

See if you can complete it that way.

After you do that, run a few web based scans using Internet Explorer (these scans require Active X. If prompted to allow a download for an Active X applet, allow it)

Trend Micro antivirus and malware scan:

I also suggest that you download, install, update and run the following:

Spybot S&D: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html
Be sure to enable “Teatimer” which gives you realtime protection against malware invasion. (absolutely necessary)

This also provides realtime protection. (absolutely necessary)
