Mse is renamed itself vista anti spyware

Yes it's free.

Sounds like you have some scareware posing as MSE

Original Poster

Gone in in safe mode and cannot open any programmes

Any idea how to get rid of the scareware

Cannot open mse or do a system restore or open malwarebytes or spybot

yup, restart, tapping f8 to access safe mode, then system restore. THats the quick fix.

Then you need malwarebytes, spyware doctor, and various freeware programs to remove it. HIjack this and system mechanic is handy too.

how can you get on here but not google?
Googling fake mse shows this as the first result which has a link to how to remove it

Use your original windows software cd to do a repair should help you to restore when it was last safe or safe mode is f8 I think

Ask to repair not to install windows I had a problem and that was the only way without doing a complete install but u must have the windows operating cd to do it. In my case my system had crashed and was stuck couldn't use the keyboard or mouse and the windows repair helped and I didn't lose software or files.

Restore it then run your virus scanning softwares that might help it

have you tried starting in safe mode, load malware bytes up date and run, also try sybot search and destroy as well

Well what do you expect? Do you really think they are gonna go to all the time and trouble to develop decent rogue software, for you to just simply do a system restore?
C'mon, think about it.
