Reboot the computer into safe mode with networking by pressing F8 repeatedly when you first turn on the computer. Once in safe mode if the ms security tool is still running hit control+alt+del, to bring up task manager, under the processes tab, there are a lot of things listed...the one we are looking for begins with a k and basically it looks like russian writing. When you find it, highlight it and end the process, you should see the ms removal tool disappear. Now you can download malwarebytes.org, installl, update, and perform a scan. That should get rid of it, I did that one last night, it was not hard. The key is finding and ending the rogue process in task manager.

also try rkill.exe
That should kill the process and then run a full updated scan of malwarebytes and remove all it finds

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
