    I found this helpful. My solution was basically:
    1. Find the virus file and rename it. I found it in Users/{me}/AppData/Local. The file had today’s date on it and although it claimed to be from Microsoft it seems it wans’t.
    2. Open Taskmanager. I had to type CTRL-ALT-ECS to get it to start. Find the process, same file name, and kill it.
    3. Open RedEdt32. Mine wouldn’t open so I had to install a third party registry editor. RegMagik in my case. The install wasn’t easy as the virus has blocked the running of exe files. Using right-click and Run As or Start got this done.
    4. Open the registry editor and search for all instance of the virus by name. In my case I searched for “pfk”. Most were found in the Users/{some user ID}/Software/Classes section, which contains .exe and others. Under the Start/Command entries, replace references to the virus with “%1” %1*. CMD and other programs should run OK after making these changes.

    1) I went into task manager via Ctrl+Alt+Delete
    2) Opened up my windows system files for the username on the computer, in my case, “Darksights”, went into AppData, Local, and found the application, with a randomly generated 3 letter name, went back to task manager, Ended the process, Deleted the file. Thus, I could open files again, I ran scan, got rid of the viruses it input. Was the easiest way I found. Hope it helps anyone.

    I’m not very computer savvy, so I need help! I downloaded the TrojanKiller on this website on to a USB, and then put the USB into my computer, and tried to open it, but it won’t let me. It just pops up saying “Win 7 Home Security 2012 has blocked a program from accessing the internet” I’m not sure where to go to from here. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
