    I get this as description

    Category: Trojan

    Description: This program is dangerous and executes commands from an attacker.

    Recommended action: Remove this software immediately.

    Security Essentials detected programs that may compromise your privacy or damage your computer. You can still access the files that these programs use without removing them (not recommended). To access these files, select the Allow action and click Apply actions. If this option is not available, log on as administrator or ask the security administrator for help.

    Can anyone tell me how to get rid of this. I tried ESET but still nothing. Also formated harddrive and reinstalled Windows 7


    Try the help forums at

    mse is supposed to be able to deal with this so its possible u have a new variant,
    best advice boot off the windows cd/dvd and remove the partitions on the hdd (don't just format them) reboot and redo the install.

    Try running malawarebytes anti malware

    As you have already re-installed W7, you could try a re-install again following the information below, and which you will need to understand before you try it. The punctionation is crap.…tml

    Try running malawarebytes anti malware

    Can a virus survive a re-install?

    yeah if its on the BIOS

    a quick google search says to download tdsskiller

    dunno if it'll work though


    yeah i had that google redirect virus on mi mates netbook .....did a reinstall and it was still there a fortnight ago

    tried several malware cleaners and still didnt manage to remove it all

    the kaspersky tdskiller finally did the job then scanned with several antivirus and malware packages........malwarebytes did not detect it neither did spybot
