    I have been able to get this far...

    I've been using the business end of a 2 by 4 for the past two days fighting Windows Enterprise Defender. I have isolated it, but it's not completely gone. Had to block IP for, fake alerts gone... and perfomance has improved greatly... However I still can't open task manager or spydoctor (pc tools). Better than it was before, I could not open anything. Downloaded "process explorer" WED did not recognize the .exe, so I was able to get in their and stop the process. Finally Malwarebytes would open and I cleared out 808 infected files. Ran Microsoft's version of their malware checker and still saw the wed***.exe and others resident on the machine, but just like Obie One, 'Don't pay any attention us, we are not the ones you are looking for."

    Sorry, back to the point... I was able to remove 1 regkey manually, but search is not finding anything else? Manually looked still nothing... no file or folders. Safe mode w/ and wo/ networking... nothing. Even tried a command prompt, but I failed the history exam!

    I'm just trying to help an unemployed friend and want to finish the job right... can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Any help greatly appreciated!!!
