It's malware disguised as an anti-virus, DogSnake.

Yes I know I did not catch the meaning of the title DOH! my bad. As to its removal, the referenced guides usually work in about 80% of the cases. This bugger can write to the system restore points also. If you can not find a restore point that solves the problem, it is a good idea to delete them as part of the cleaning routine and not turn S.R. back on until you know the machine is clean. This link provides a list of associated files. I suggest that after using Malwarebytes a system inspection is done to insure none of these remain. If any are found you may have to go into safe mode to delete them.

I followed the routine outlined, went almost all through the scan, found 9 bad files then the system shut down. When restarted it shuts down immediately after GoBack stops. Maybe this is now a variant that uses your info to make it worse????

Can you help???

The first thing to do, is try to remove all infections. Boot into safe mode with networking (F8 on startup). Download, install, and update malwarebytes. Then do a full system scan.

As tominfl has experienced, sometimes the damage has been done to system files. In a case like that, the easiest fix, is to do a windows repair. This process is similar to a windows install, but it simply replaces system files. It won't effect user data at all. Here's a guide on how to use the startup repair.
