Well we seem to been caught by this rogue trojan.

Help to get rid of it would be appreciated.

It blocks all attempts to get rid of it.

Had this yesterday on a friend's laptop. I just booted into Safe Mode and scanned with MSE, that seemed to get rid of it.

It also says it blocks executables from running, but I was able to open Task Manager...

MalwareBytes seems to have fixed it.

See list of new programs under RegCleaner.

What are these in the main ?.

Get rid of Ask toolbar, weatherbug, advanced systemcare, searchqmediabar. Do a full scan not a quick scan with mbam

Malware was a full scan

MS virus software now running, 2 hrs so far, it was set to run at 3am on a Sunday, when the pc is off, lol.

Reset it to 3pm daily.
