Specs: Windows 7, 4GB
I was browsing the net today morning and downloaded some key gen software. When I ran that keygen software my antivirus (microsoft security essentials) got disabled and I am not able to scan the laptop or in that case any drive or file. weird thing, IE opens up by itself once in a while taking me to some weird internet pages.

Please help me remove this virus.

A short lecture, You created the problem your self and MSE is not a strong AV to begin with.
You will probably have to tap f8 on bootup and choose safe mode with networking.
Download and run these 3 utilities in the EXACT order
1- rkill.exe

2- TDSS killer

3- Malwarebytes

Run a full scan and fix all it finds

Thanks for the reply...

I just discovered tat by killing the rundll32.exe process (which is pointing to sysWOW64 folder in a 64bit xp 7) I am able to open the AV but unable to scan or use it.

Can I still use the above mentioned procedure?

Ran the three scans.

The last one detected some malware and removed them. But the problem is still persisting.

Anti Virus disabled and Browser directing me to some junk sites.

What else I should do
