For this one you want to do as much as possible in safe mode.

Boot the system to safe mode with networking. Download and run rkill:

This will stop the rogue process from running. After it completes, run mbam again (make sure it updates itself before running. Select a FULL SCAN and allow to complete. After it completes, click on the SHOW RESULTS button.

On that page, click on APPLY ACTIONS

Allow it to remove any infections found. When complete, boot normally and test.
