Will keep an eye your way. One thing though, before you call it a night. As Crunchie likes to point out, MBA-M doesn't run at full strength in Safe Mode, so if after the scan you can at least boot and run in normal boot, would be a good idea - just let run over-night :)
Keep us posted as to how you go.
@Judy - good point on the Scheduled Tasks. As an aside to the Task Manager tip, would suggest SysInternal's Process Manager, as should give a more accurate look-over as to what is still running in the back-ground
Right now kaninelupus I doubt he could get that on his computer, plus for now he really should limit what he attempts to download to removal tools at best. He very easily found those two processes that PP told him to look for so I would advise against this for now. We don't really want to "push the envelope" at this time.
Plus he said he can access Task Manager in Normal mode so the question of running MBA-M in safe is somewhat moot. If he was able to stop those processes from running while in normal mode then he should then immediately be able to run MBA-M also in normal mode. Of course if that is totally impossible then safe will have to do, but it will not fully scan all files in safe mode.
