    HELP! Thanks for the advice on how to deal with this malware, but my computer got infected and I have been unable to remove it even using this procedure. It is blocking any attempt to open the Task Manager (using Ctrl+Alt+Delete or any other method), so I cannot stop the program. Every time I try, I get a message saying Task Manager has been infected. It is even blocking me from booting Windows in Safe Mode!

    I got advice on another page about how to get around the blocking of Task Manager, but this did not work. I found the TaskMgr program in the Windows file and renamed it to “iexplore”. When I tried to open it, I got a message saying Task Manager had been disabled by the Administrator. I tried to run it as the Admin. (I thought I had the correct password), but this didn’t work either. Now, my internet explorer won’t even open.

    Is there any way I can get around this? Should I try running the removal download from above anyway? Please help me! Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks.

    RM,
    Thanks for your question!
    Looks like Internet Security 2010 has really taken over your PC. Well, you might want to try accessing Safe Mode over and over – you may succeed in the long run.
    If that doesn’t seem to work anyway, try the following.
    Go to ‘Start’ menu, click ‘Run’ and type in ‘msconfig’. This should open up a new window. On that window, hit the ‘Startup’ tab and locate the processes that end in ‘IS2010.exe’, ’41.exe’, ‘winlogon86.exe’, ‘winupdate86.exe’ or similar. Untick them all. Save the changes and restart. Now that Internet Security 2010 virus is not loading at startup, you can try to download and launch our removal tool.
    If even this doesn’t work out…, well, then try to download the removal tool on a PC that’s not infected and save it under a different name (e.g. ‘software’) to a CD, memory stick etc.
    Transfer it to your contaminated machine then.
    Try the above methods. At least one should work!
    Regards,
    Admin

    I had a computer that was infected with this at work. I rebooted the machine in safe mode and it still started up with Internet Security 2010. I rebooted again in normal mode and immediately hit “Ctrl+Shift+Esc” as soon as I entered my password to log on. That allowed me to open up the task manager before the malware had a chance to block it. I then opened up the run line and opened up “regedit,” again, before the malware had a chance to block it. As soon as IS2010 popped up I ended the process in the opened task manager and proceded to clean the computer.

    I am a computer network admin by trade and my daughter got this nasty malware on her PC. Nothing I tried worked. After hours of trying to fix her PC, I ended up puttting her drive in another PC I have as a second drive. I booted off my non-infected drive then I removed all the above listed files. I then put the drive back in her PC and the malware was gone – for the most part. I them manually deleted the registry entries listed above and I also ran a couple of removal software tools. Her drive is now clean. Hope this helps.

    I’ve managed to kick out the IS 2010 by:
    - changing my account privileges to simple user,
    - setting the simpliest startup possible with msconfig (like admin wrote above).
    After this I could manually remove the IS 2010 as written above.

    When I removed the IS 2010 and rebooted the system, I’ve discovered that I can’t logon into any of my accounts. It appears, that some versions of IS 2010 change the Windows registry.

    The solution is to set the key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ WindowsNT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon
    to point into windows userinit.exe file.

    When I’ve finally logged into my computer I’ve discovered that:
    - the task manager isn’t working,
    - I can’t change the wallpaper.

    The solution to this problems is again a registry edit. Find in the current_user and local_machine branches the following path:
    software > microsoft > windows > currentversion > policies

    Then remove the keys:
    noactivedesktopchanges
    nosetactivedesktop
    nochangingwallpaper

    Conclusion: When just surfing in the web use a simple user account rather then an administrator one – the IS2010 won’t have a chance to install, mix up the registry and do any harm.

    I have the same problem as Pedro, but I dont understand how to edit the registry keys when I can’t log on?? Can somebody please help!! Thanks

    Sandra,
    You can edit Windows Registry by accessing the registry editor. It can be done by choosing ‘Run’ and typing in ‘regedit’.
    If you’re still not sure how to do it, try to get rid of IS2010 malware the automatic way.
    BTW, have you tried to boot into Safe Mode? It’s entered via repeatedly pressing F8 key when you are starting up your system. Safe Mode should prevent Internet Security 2010 virus from blocking your attempts to remove it. Just boot into Safe Mode and use the automatic instructions above.

    i tried to go to my registry in safe mode by I det the following message: “Registry Editing has been disabled by your administrator”! how do I bypass this message?

    Av,
    You should try to switch from administrator to a simple user through ‘User Accounts’ at Control Panel.
    Thank you

    READ THIS READ THIS READ THIS!!!!!! It will allow you to open task manger!

    To reset your administrative setting to allow for task manager, simply go to run, copy and paste this:

    REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    hit Enter. Works every time, for me at least :)

    Google rkill download it and run it, if exe files are blocked try rkill.com or rkill.scr
