Superantispyware may or may not remove it, this program will:

http://www.malwaresupport.com/mbam/program/mbam-setup.exe

Called malwarebytes antimalware. I use it three times a day. superantispyware is not bad, but malwarebytes will remove it in a quick scan without needing to go to safe mode. regardless, my suggestion download BOTH run BOTH in a full scan, start with malware bytes full scan after updating them both. then reboot and run full scan of the superantispyware as well, do this for every login. it will also fix the hijacked backround, and the missing tabs in video properties. which I can also help you with but it should do this for you automatically, also NOD32 will keep it out once it's removed:

What is PCProtect?


PCProtect is malware. What is PCProtect exe . I would boot up in Safe Mode again, or Normal if you have to, and bring up Task Manager again (Ctrl-Alt-Del) and check to see if explorer.exe is running. If not, Click on File in the Task Manager toolbar, select New Task (Run), and type explorer.exe in the Open box and click OK. If all goes well, your icons and Start Menu will appear and you can start cleaning up. Otherwise, you could try again and type appwiz.cpl in the Open box to bring up the Programs and Features to remove any bad programs you may find. Malware removal can takes years of experience, so I will leave it at that to try for a starting point.

How to remove the scvhost.exe Virus.


Svchost.exe is the name of a generic host process for services that run from dynamic link libraries (DLLs). A variety of worm malware programs spread a similarly named file <b>Scvhost.exe </b>via Yahoo! Messenger that blocks the Task Manager and Registry Editor, as well as use of the command prompt.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Warning</u></b><br /> Manual removal of Scvhost.exe may be very difficult as the removal process requires knowledge of the Operating System's command prompt and Registry Editor. If not performed properly, your computer system might experience permanent damage. Consequently, manual removal might be best for experienced users. Less experienced users might want to consider using an automatic spyware removal application, such as that offered by Trend Micro. This worm duplicates itself to different locations of shared folders. The duplicated program uses a folder icon that has an .exe file extension. DO NOT double click on any of these folders.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Follow these step by step instructions to remove the scvhost.exe virus.</u></b><br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 1 (Turning off System Restore)</u></b><br /> This is so that if you ever need to use System Restore after you have removed the virus, it doesn't restore the virus aswell.<br /> <br /> If the operating system of the infected computer is either Windows Me or Windows XP, turn off System Restore while this fix is being implemented. To turn off System Restore within Windows Me, click <b>Start &gt; Settings &gt; Control Panel</b>. Double-click <b>System</b>. Select F<b>ile System</b> from the Performance tab. Left click the <b>Troubleshooting</b> tab and check the <b>Disable System Restore</b> box. Click <b>OK</b>. <br />To turn off System Restore within Windows XP, log in as Administrator and click <b>Start</b>. Right click <b>My Computer</b>" and select <b>Properties</b> from the shortcut menu. Check the <b>Turn off System Restore</b> option for each drive on the System Restore tab. Left click <b>Apply</b> and <b>Yes</b> to confirm when prompted. Click <b>OK</b>.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 2 (Run in safe mode)</u></b><br /> Restart your computer in Safe Mode and log in as Administrator. Press <b>F8</b> after the first beep occurs during start up, before the display of the Microsoft Windows logo. Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode from the selection menu.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 3 (Accessing Command prompt)</u></b><br /> Access the command prompt. Click <b>Start &gt; Run</b>. Type <b>cmd</b>. Click <b>OK</b>. Then in the command prompt type <b>cd </b>to<b> </b>change directory then press the space bar. <br />Type the name of the full directory path of the folder containing your Windows system files. It will be either <b>C:\Windows\System </b>or<b> C:\Windows\System 32</b><br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 4</u></b><br /> From the command prompt, type the following to unprotect the files for removal:<br /><b>attrib -h -r -s scvhost.exe</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br /><b>attrib -h -r -s blastclnnn.exe </b>and press<b> "Enter</b>;<br /><b>attrib -h -r -s autorun.inf</b> and press <b>Enter</b>.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Step 5</u></b><br /> Delete the files by typing the following from the command prompt:<br /><b>del scvhost.exe</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br /><b>del blastclnnn.exe</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br /><b>del autorun.ini</b> and press <b>Enter</b>.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 6</u></b><br /> Type "<b>cd\</b>" to return to the main Windows directory.<br />Unprotect and delete the Autorun.inf file by typing the following from the Windows directory command prompt:<br /><b>attrib -h -r -s autorun.inf</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br /><b>del</b> <b>autorun.inf</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br />Type <b>regedit</b> and press <b>Enter</b> to open the Registry Editor.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 7</u></b><br /> Locate the following entry:<br /><b>HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run</b>.<br />Delete the incorrectly spelled Yahoo! Messenger entry with the value<br /><b>c:\windows\system32\scvhost.exe.</b><br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 8</u></b><br /> Locate the following key:<br /><b>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon</b>.<br />Within the key, there is a <b>shell</b> entry with the value of <b>explorer.exe, scvhost.exe</b>. Edit the entry to remove the reference to Scvhost.exe, leaving Explorer.exe as the remaining value in the registry entry.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Step 9</u></b><br /> Locate the following key:<br /><b>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE&gt;SYSTEM&gt;CurrentControlSet&gt;Services&gt;<br /></b>Delete the following subkeys from the left panel:<br /><b>RpcPatch</b><br /><b>RpcTftpd <br /></b>Exit the command prompt and return to the operating system. Type <b>Exit</b>, and press <b>Enter</b>.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Step 10</u></b><br /> Reboot the PC.<br />If Scvhost.exe still resides on the computer, repeat these steps or try using an automatic removal program from McAfee or Symantec.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br />

How to remove a virus from my desktop thats locking up my system


Any virus that's locking up a PC is most has likely modified the Explorer policy. You must find a way to identify and rectify the problem. One paid software that checks the integrity of a PC's OS is Trojan Remover. Do an internet search for a trial version (30 days) and install into your computer and run it.

It should automatically detect any modifications in the normal Windows Explorer policies altered by Trojan Horse viruses or some other malware. When prompted, click on click appropriately for the software to correct this problems.

Also head online and get yourself a copy of Avira AntiVir Personal Free anitivirus, install it and remove any active virus that may be in the system.

Also launch the Windows Task Manager and disable any active virus processes that may be running. If Registry Editor and Task Manager are currently disabled, then Trojan Remover will correct these problems.

I don't know if you have done this already but you could try restoring your computer to an earlier period, before you started experiencing this virus. What version of windows are you using and do you currently use an anti virus product on your system? I personally would recommend Norton 360 which is the product I use. That aside, if you can't do anything whilst on the main desktop screen then you could try rebooting and pressing F8 in order to access the Advanced Options menu. From here you can choose to boot up into what's called Safe Mode. This will boot your computer with a minimum configuration including basic device drivers as well as basic video graphics. If you access Safe Mode hopefully the virus is not present in this mode and this will enable you to do certain things like restoring your computer to an earlier date from here. You can also try and install antivirus software if you have the original disk in this mode, that's if you're not using an antivirus product at the moment. If you were unable to do anything then the worst case scenario would be to restore your system completely and reinstall windows using your original windows disk if you have it. This would give your system a clean start but obviously you would have to begin over, getting the updates from the microsoft site and so forth. This would take a while but not overly long, I would say two to three hours. If you don't have the original disks then you could perhaps try contact your computer's manufacturer and asking them to send you all the original disks that go with your particular brand of computer. The ease of this all depends on how old your computer is. I don't know if this is much help to you but I'm willing to carry out further research on your behalf if you provide following details:

Windows Operating system you use.
Make and model of your particular computer.
How old? number of years you had computer.

Good luck, sorry I'm not much help otherwise.

Well, your problem seems to be due to a virus attack. Certain virus disable your task manager. To solve this, scan your computer with a good antivirus software and remove the virus. But in most cases you won't be able to restore the task manager with the antivirus application. So the best method is to backup your documents on the the drive where OS is installed and reinstall your OS.

Antivirus 2009


I see these every day, note: also fixes AV 2008 and many others.

This Malware is known as "Rogue anti-virus" software.

This program will remove it: http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=5360&file=10&evp=2e0d43eb67e1e71c0b31e62c003599c0
the website that has it also has a really good antispyware program called malwarebytes

www.malwarebytes.org

once you run a full scan in this program run this program:
http://www.superantispyware.com/downloadfile.html?productid=SUPERANTISPYWAREFREE
it's another free antispyware. these are both professional grade removal software for free. I remove this stuff about 3 times a day. It seems this outbreak is the largest I've ever seen.

If you want a good protection suite that will keep it out buy a copy of NOD32 (www.nod32-av.com) another you may not have heard of, it will block this and many others before it even gets on your computer.

While online my computer frequentlu , for no reason, goes offline.


How about go to windows Task manager and go to processes. Look for Kragg.exe. Dellete it. It is a virus that go infected the boot sector. Go first to F8 or safe mode. Then control alt dellete so you can go to task manager. If you are not sure of this kragg.exe virus, you may scan your computer with your antivirus while in safe mode. Maybe your antivirus will quarantine the kragg.exe virus.
