Windows Seven Home Security 2012 TROJAN

there is a rogue program around that attacks your PC, by diverting Google links..
it pops up onscreen as Windows Seven Home Secirity 2012 - it's a trojan..!!

and a particularly nasty one too - got advice from bleepingcomputer via son's PC
- ran their Registry fixer - then ran Rkill - then Malwarebytes..

but even after a restart, it still comes up with nasties, like this:

I had good luck over the weekend cleaning a friend's computer by using the standalone MSE program booted from a USB drive.

Did you reply to the analyst there that you are still having problems? How about a link to your topic at BC.

took their advice and ran a wee regedit prog they directed me to
then installed and ran Rkill, followed by iExplore, then full scan via MalwareBytes
this was followed a full scan via MSE..

this turned up a couple of rogues in the Creative folder.. I just deleted them completely..

also deleted a couple of entries in the msconfig start-up, which look as though they're designed to exe as soon as Internet Explorer is opened..

- this Trojan is a nasty little beast, and quite persistent, too..

- thanks should go to bleepingcomputer for providing a solution..

Hi, BugMeister.

When receiving help from a trained analyst, it is advisable to only follow the instructions they provide and not run any fixes or scanners that you have not been instructed to use. This may cause conflicts with the tools being used in the cleanup process.
