Man if your right, Your my hero!

But the only problem is, How can I download the patch for the virus if my computer keeps shutting down?

Is there any other way I can get rid of this?

Thx alot if someone can help me, And thx Blaster... ^^

Ohhh man, now its messed, Now its saying:

"193 System Security IBM Embedded Security hardware has been removed."

And then wen I try and start in Safe Mode it says:

"A Problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

And then says to restart my computer.

What is going on????
