can I ask a question, big bryan ?
your post is helpful ...
I also have security tool (and backdoor.bot).

I know to remove security tool (rather than just detect it on a scan) I need to buy the paid for version.
does it definitely work ?
do you think it might get rid of backdoor.bot as well ?
I'd rather buy spyware doctor usig a credit card on a non affected PC

I have tried malwarebytes anti-malware and even when I have changed the file name like it says to do on step 4 of the procedure, it still won't let me execute the file. Are there any other avenues I can take, this virus will not even let me open task manager.
