I leave for Chicago for 3 days and when I get back, my wife informs me that there is some weird popups about security.

Well, it is a trojan called system security.

there is no process called systemsecurity.exe

I tried downloading malwarebytes or whatever, but the trojan would not let it install.

And...everytime I google malwarebytes, it just shuts down my browser.

WTF :cuss: I want to hurt these people who do this shit.

Anyone out there know what this shit is and what I can do? Everything I know is not working.

Follow the manual removal instructions located on this page: http://www.411-spyware.com/system-security-removal

You may be able to just stop the system process and then install Malwarebytes and run it. There's a chance that once you stop the running service, it won't prevent you from installing Malwarebytes. I'm not sure though, I've never had to remove this one...

I had a hell of a time trying to get this off of my father in laws PC. Eventually I just gave up, backed up his important files and rebuilt the OS.
