    One thing you may want to try is using a different web browser (Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome etc.). Perhaps your web browser is allowing the personal security to block it.

    There are never any guarantees in malware fighting, but try this:

    If you have an anti-virus, make sure it has the latest virus definitions and run a full scan with it in Safe Mode with Networking. That often prevents malware from protecting itself. If you don’t have one, many people here swear by AVG (it’s free).

    I suggest you also download Ad-Aware Free and Spybot S&D (they’re free), install them, update them and run full scans with them, again in Safe Mode With Networking.

    Also, turn off System Restore to evict any copies of bad stuff that might be lurking there.

    To get into Safe Mode with Networking:

    1.Log out and reboot your machine.
    2.When the machine starts the reboot sequence, press the F8 key repeatedly.
    3.Select Safe Mode with Networking from the resulting menu.
    4.Login. If the malware has changed your password, try logging in as Administrator. By default, Administrator has no password.
    5.The machine will continue booting, but the Windows desktop will look different.
    6.When you’re finished doing what you need to do, log out and reboot back into normal mode.

    Note that even if the anti-malware programs get rid of the malware, they may not be able to reverse the effects. Search the Web for possible fixes.

    Update and run full scans regularly, not just when you think you already have malware.

    Good luck.

    Note: There ARE free versions of these programs on the websites listed. They just may not be obvious.

    Ad-Aware Free (free): http://www.lavasoftusa.com/
    Spybot S & D (free): http://www.spybot.com/

    AVG anti-virus (free): http://free.grisoft.com/doc/2/lng/us/tpl/v5/
    Avast! (free): http://www.avast.com/
    Kaspersky (free trial) (Seems to dislike installing on any machine with just about any other decent anti-malware, including some firewalls.): http://usa.kaspersky.com/downloads/
    MalwareBytes (free) http://www.malwarebytes.org/ (If the program doesn’t run, changing its filename from mbam.exe to something else ending in .exe has sometimes proven effective.)

    Spyware Doctor or malwarebytes should get rid of it.
    Though you might have to manually stop its processes (typically, psecurity but it might vary) and then download/do scan
    Also, you can try to reboot into safe mode with networking – some fake av have problems launching in safe mode.
