    Hi there,

    Got a client with similar issue to the following:

    http://www.lockergnome.com/blade/2008/10/22/beware-the-fake-windows-security-center/

    Not been to see them yet but is the solution simply to delete the .exe file listed and stop the process? Has anyone come across this?

    Downloaded lastest Microsoft anti-malware tool but client seems to think they can't install anything.

    Ideas (format as last resort only!)....
