If you cannot terminate the process.

Hi virus fighters,

If you cannot terminate the process in Safe Mode, use another Process Manager like IBProcMan, or Process Explorer to shut down the virus. If and some viruses do, the virus looks at the process name, change the name. So if this is hijackthis.exe, change the name into hjt.exe for instance. ;D

Good luck in terminating evil processes,

your anti-malware friend,
