Specs: Windows 7, 4 gigs
ran malwarebytes and it kept coming back saying broken open command it was a registry infection, some input would be great I think I got rid of it I have run 15 scans and it has not showed up. but one thing I have not done is run system mechanic nor c cleaner like I normally would so what should I do no run these great programs ?. I disabled Symantec ant-virus, and now use Microsoft essentials, which one should I use. my boot time was 3.43 now it is 1.12 after disabling some other non Microsoft, so programs, so I am just letting you know the effects of disabling one anti-virus thanks and I know I am asking a lot from all of you but I spent 9 hours on all of this stuff learning and all so a big thanks ok bye.

✔ Best Answer
Hey pal, truth be told.. I wouldn't use either of those security programs, go on download.com and download AVG For Free 2012, it's a free antivirus program that takes care of itself. However, before installing it.. get rid of MSE and Symantec, only one antivirus program per machine.

To address your issue, what I usually use to get rid of pests like that is Spybot - Search and Destroy.. it has rules and functions in it that scan your system looking for things exactly like the infection your talking about. You can get it off of download.com

I hope this helps!

Torrents are illegal my friend, lol, because they are illegal copies of software, so.. I prefer not to talk about those on here, lol.

I'm glad I can help though!

good luck on removing MSE....near impossible. Use the Norton uninstaller from their website for removing Norton.
I wouldn't suggest AVG...Avast Free is much better and has no scheduled scans etc to worry about...it is all automatic.
Here are some good reasons to choose Avast:
