    Hi. One of our PC has been hammered with a thing called Cyber Security. It
    pops up Microsoft look-alike screens showing the firewall on but virus off -
    keeps asking for registration fees etc - it goes in a cycle of requesting
    then shutting the pc down on the pretext of finding an active threat. It's
    put two "Shields" in the tray, one that looks like the MS one with red threat
    status and the other a blue one. Been looking for ways to remove it - Trying
    to run the MalwareBytes thing but it keeps shutting down as soon as it
    flashes up - I assume it's the CS thing protecting itself. The first hit on
    Google for removing this appears itself to be a fake according to the WhoIs
    site (think that's the name).
    Anyone have any idea on how to kill it? I would assume MS would be
    none-too-happy to have their screens copied.

    If MBAM is shutting down with this one, then it needs special handling

    register & post the following logs on the HJT /malware cleaning forum where we can help
