Rename the Malwarebytes and Mcafee executables to enable them to run. Sometimes the viral app blocks the know .exe file.

Can you get into safe mode to do the virus scanning?

quincydude,

If this is a [variant] of the anti-virus 2008/9 BHO
Safe mode will not work. I had this bugger and it was a bear to remove.
I too had no access to the Task Manager; could not run my Malwarebytes exe and AV scans were not succesful. I renamed the exe files as mentioned and was able to delete the vermin with Malwarebytes.

Another method for access to your system is to use a "live CD" running Linux. Once you boot into Linux you can install and run the programs needed to eradicate the 'vermin'.
