Security essentials error on windows 7

Each time Microsoft security essentials either identifies an issue or is launched we get:

"you are about to be logged off

windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute. please save your work"

What can I do? I have run kasperspy disk recovery and addressed all issues found. Now we installed MSE program we get this error each time and system restarts so I dont even have time to uninstall MSE to see if that addresses the issue.

Please help!!

Boot the system in Safe mode then try to remove or disable the MSE service from the service console.

Boot system in recovery mode and ran the command sfc/scan.

After boot the machine still issue persists then repair your OS.

pma111,

It sounds as though MSE is conflicting with some other process. MSE can be configured to ignore any process/executable; if needed.

Is this only happening on one system (assuming you are in a multiple system environment)?
Have you checked the Event Viewer logs to see if you can identify the problem in more detail?
Are you running any other security type programs?

Its a freinds latop so a personal device not a corporate one. I don't have chance to check logs or other apps as I get about 90 seconds from powering it on before mse flares up and the auto shutdown kicks in

You should have plenty of time to run "msconfig" from the "Start Menu --> Search programs and files" function.

Change your settings to look like this and then restart the computer "Normal Mode":

pma111--You have a trojan and one that is difficult to uninstall.

The easiest method if you are lucky would be to run a System Restore from Safe Mode with Networking and from a date before the problem started.  If successful, then delete all existing System Restore points.

Does anyone know if kaspersky rescue disk can get rid of this trojan?

jcimarronCommented:
pma111--I have no idea whether the kaspersky rescue disk will eliminate this trojan or not.  Any reason you have not already tried it?  But I see you have already used kaspersky disk without success.
I suggest you use one or more of the procedures in the links in http:#a38396878 .  I know they seem lengthy, but I am not aware of anything simpler, other than System Restore.
