This is so annoying. I can't remove it. I've looked on many sites, but I'm a computer fail person and don't understand them. It won't let me run any programs. I tried System Restore, but it was corrupt, so I had to delete the previous restore points and create a whole new one.

Help would be appreciated.

Oh, and if this isn't allowed or is in the wrong place, please move it.

^ First Google search result. Seems pretty straightforward. Follow it step-by-step, and read all of each of kahdah's posts.

It sounds like an MS Antivirus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MS_Antivirus_%28malware%29) variant. SmitFraudFix (http://antivirus.about.com/od/freeantivirussoftware/ht/smitfraudfix.htm) should be able to handle it.

I tried this, and for some reason, it didn't work. Any other suggestions?

Not sure if this will work or not, but it's worth a try.
