The virus is very new; however, the newest version of Malwarebytes should be able to remove it. However, you will need to update the definitions of the program before running it so that the Malwarebytes will be able to detect the virus. Its worth a try to use a pen drive.

I would also try connecting to the internet with a different browser. The virus may have just changed settings on Internet Explorer.

I'm having the same issue. Same exact friggin malware and everything, and was up till about 4 am this morning butting heads with it. I downloaded a script that completely turned SE2010 off, and I could get into programs and run task manager (which are important things that it had locked me out of), but when I tried to run my malaware bytes program to scan my HD, it blue screened me. I tried it again and got similar results, another blue screen. I'm scared to try it any further for risk of corrupting my harddrive, but I can't rest easy knowing it's still there. Turned off, but there. And when I got home yesterday from class, it had a new trick for me. It's making firefox and IE crash every time I try to open them, which is a serious headache, seeing how the list of instructions I found yesterday morning on how to manually remove all of the files and registries were sent to my email. So I wasn't even able to pull that up to help me out.

It's a pain in the butt.

I Just Had To Remove "Security Essentials 2010" From My Comp 2 Days Ago! Malwarebytes Failed To Detect It! I Had To Re-Install XP From CD "LEAVING SYSTEM FILES INTACT" No Changes To System Files! After Installing The New System I Then Had Two XP Systems On My Computer. After Installing The New System I Rebooted And Selected My New System And In IT I Installed Malwarebytes And Ran A FULL SCAN And THEN It Detected "Security Essentials 2010" Which I Deleted! Then Rebooted Into My Old System And "Security Essentials" Was GONE!!! But The Screen Was Still Distorted So I Merely Right Clicked On Screen Selected Properties Then Selected My Fav Screen And It Was Normal Again! However, Deleting The Trojan Rendered MSIE Inoperable (But Not Netscape) So I Had To Uninstall MSIE 8 Using Doss Command In RUN! Then Download And Reinstall MSIE 8. GOOD As New! I Also Reccommend "HouseCall" Trojan Remover From Micro Trends For Running A FULL Scan ONLY After You've Removed "Security Essentials"! It Will Require Quite Some Time And Patience To Remove That Trojan! I Have Removed Many Trojans In The Past But This One Is The WORST OF ALL!!!

I read your SE problem.
Have you finally found the Right Microsoft Security Essentials?http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/
also dload this
http://www.kaspersky.com/downloads
the 30 day trial.
very good system.
Try backing up your important info and reloading wndws from disc.
Leave IE8 in the background and use another Browser without so many Gliches and Open to Attack.. Opera is good.
http://www.opera.com/
I have found Malwarebytes MCAFEE and otherCommercial anti virus superficially protect the PC. Norton takes it over as do some other top of the line AV.
Microsoft works well with Kaspersky.
Also mrt.exe is a helpful malicious programme finder.
Can u break into your C Drive?
You can manually remove Security Essential rogue.

The first thing I did was to take the machine off-line, I was able to install defender and the real SE using pendrives.I used windows defender to end the SE2010 process (since task manager was disabled). Once I stopped the process I was able to remove most of the things it installed using the instructions I found online and a few scans. However SE2010 does seem to come with a list of other malware which it tries to install and instructions do not cover all the possible combinations. I found one registry entry that appears to be an array of numbers which appear to reference numbered exe files, I found these files and removed them as well - I'm guessing they were malware ready to go. One of the processes associated with SE2010 found my website password stored in FTP software and used that to add seemingly malicous code to my webpages. While the machine appears to be free of the malware, it can never be trusted again as is. Importantly, never allow software to remember your passwords for you unless they use encryption and require a master password. Many FTP clients store these passowrds in clear text making it easy for malware to gain access to FTP resources such as websites
