Hey everyone, I've got a problem This started a couple weeks ago, in the middle of me trying to start and finish an essay for my English class the next day. I've managed to get around it every day, but it's a rather large pain in the butt. As you can see in the attachment, it's called Microsoft Security Essentials, and it tells me that there's a trojan somewhere on my computer. The 'Close' button and the X, along with Alt+F4, all just make it close and reopen within a millisecond. It sort of looks like when you press F5 on the My Computer page. Anyway, it's there as soon as I log on every time, and I can't open any programs. It also doesn't let any processes start unless they're already dedicated Startup ones (ie, Norton Antivirus runs at startup, but Norton Ghost is set to run after I log on. It doesn't run now). I get around this by quickly pressing Restart, and then hoping a dialogue comes up (for ending a process, like CCAPP or something, then press Cancel to return to windows. As soon as I click Restart, the MSE window closes, and I have a (mostly**) fully functional computer again. When I press any of the option buttons on the MSE window, it tries to connect to the internet and install some more lovely viruses, however, because my computer is already so Broken/Messed Up/Dumb, it can't connect and gives me an error! I've already tried using Norton Systemworks, Spyware Terminator, and CCleaner to get this thing out, but they don't seem to be recognizing it as a threat. And since I can't even open Task Manager while it's up, I can't see what it's process is to delete it. Any help with getting rid of this would be really helpful I just previewed this post and saw that the attachment has ****'s instead of actual letters. I apologize. I was rather frustrated when I named that particular image.
