    When did you install your Microsoft security essentials and are your system is patched at windows update? What anti-malware application was installed on your system prior to install Microsoft security essential and have you remove the Anti-virus security before installing Microsoft security essentials.

    Antispyware soft is a new antispyware from the same family Antivirus suite, Live. They all are same it has modified the core files in order to remain undetected from anti-malware or anti-virus. This infect your system with the help of trojans.When trojan is active it will download and install antispyware soft on your system without your permission and you are not even aware that something get installed on your system without your knowledge. This will registry itself in windows registry file and run when you login into windows. You will get a lot of nag screens and warning as well as fake alerts.

    Follow these instruction in order to remove the Antispyware soft:
    1) Download HijackThis. You will easily get this by just searching in Google.
    2) Before saving HijackThis rename it to iexplorer.exe and then click on save button. If you are unable to download HijackThis then you need to repair proxy settings of Internet.

    I was really frustrated with this . My computer is infected with a nasty malware know as antispyware soft. Infect system with a trojan, hijack and disable all functions. I download the HijackThis and MalwareBytes program on another ysytem and rename to iExplorer.exe, save to a CD. Copy this file to infected computer and run them on this system and have done two scans from each programs and now my system is clean from Antispyware soft.

    Re: Microsoft Security Essentials did not detect Antispyware Soft Virus

    Have the same issue of Antispyware soft. I download HijackThis and installed it on my system and did the same thing as mentioned above but it could not find anything. I went ahead and download MalwareBytes and run quick scan it found 36 infected files and I removed all of them, restart the system I have to run it in safe mode.By the way I use AVG for virus protector but AVG let this get pass. Does any one has any suggestion on a new virus protector which is better then AVG? So far my computer seems to be OK. But I need some good security tool to protect my system getting infected from such malwares and spywares. Thank in advance for your valuable suggestion.
