MSSE - Unable to Uninstall Issue


I have a user that has done something to corrupt his machine ... specifically his MSSE installation as well as his PC can no longer save or run downloads from IE10.

Dell something

I have seen/read this thread ... Microsoft Security Essentials Problem

However I see much of that instruction is specific to that user's PC ... can someone help me out here??

The computer in question has been infected with ZeroAccess, and it can damage Microsoft Security Essentials as well as Windows Defender.

Need to go out for a while, but will get back here later on this afternoon.

Please do not engage in running any programs on the machine. It may make the state of its condition worse, rather than better.

Thank you for your patience.

Run FRST again, but this time press the Fix button just once, and wait.

Glad you figured out what to do with the Fixlist...could not get a set of double quotes to go away. No clue as to what is wrong. Now the Font size does not want to adjust!! Oh well!!

Since the following steps involve editing the Registry, please create new restore point before proceeding.
System Restore Point - Create
Select: Option Two

Now, please download the ESET ServicesRepair:
Save to the Desktop.
Double-click and run the downloaded file.

When the program runs, a prompt appears asking if you want to proceed.
Click: Yes
When the Services routine is Completed, you are asked to Reboot.
Click Yes to allow the reboot.

The tool creates a folder named CC Support on the Desktop.
Please provide the CC Support\Logs\SvcRepair.txt in your reply.

Last, please run the Farbar Service Scanner once again, provide the new FSS.txt in your reply.

Also, is the infected computer runing a 64-bit system, or a 32-bit?

Rather confused on that...below your name 64-bit shows, but, the reports show x86 (32-bit)
