I am having a problem with on of m laptops.   the DO_NOT_TRUST_FIDDLER seems to have hijacked a laptop at my company.   I can't find any software that would have installed it, and it's wreaking havoc with secured services, including email.   I can't find any method of removing it.  Does anyone have any experience?

I would do what the thread Gary posted says.. On top of that if it's only limited to one laptop I would download the latest copy of Kaspersky Rescue disk and burn it to a CD.  Boot the laptop off the cd and let the rescue disk run all the way through.  

If you can connect it to your network, wireless etc, so that it can pull down the latest definitions prior to it running the sweep, would be preferred.

If this is a known issue and has a fix, kaspersky rescue should find it and remove it.

lol. DO_NOT_TRUST_FIDDLER is the https interception certificate for this (free, legitimate) software

Fiddler is an intercepting proxy used for debugging https problems. If you are seeing its certificate errors in https traffic, that means the browser in question is being configured to send its traffic via fiddler; to investigate, you should look to see what the browser proxy settings are set to (if its localhost, then fiddler is installed locally; AV won't detect it as it is legitimate software)
