    Those two are very safe to install. They are currently having a lot of success at removing this. It's a variant of quite a common rogue antispyware which has become very prolific in the past few months.
    I'd try MBAM first, because it is a smaller download, if I remember correctly. Download it, install it, update it, run a full scan.
    Sometimes the malware makes applications like this not install correctly, or unable to run.
    Let us know if this is the case here. (There are tricks...)
    [EDIT] Link for the download page of MBAM: It's the green "download" button.

    @zantosx

    Can I assume from your screenshots that Eset allowed this rogue onto your computer?

    Nod is not alone with these rogue apps they change often to avoid detection.The last time I tested a rogue I uploaded it to Virustotal all 36 scanners undetected.superantispyware and MBAM detected.If you combine Nod32 and MBAM or SAS realtime to compliment nod32 IMHO=better protection overall.

    If you scanned and all is not yet right, try scanning in safe mode.
    Some infections are difficult to remove completely or discover unless in safe mode.

    First, make sure you install and update your scanners.
    Then, Restart the computer.
    Next, When the computer restarts, tap the F8 key repeatedly until you see a menu of choices. Safe Mode and Safe Mode with Networking will be the top two.
    Safe mode with Networking can be used to update scanners as long as you have a wired connection. Updating and scanning in safe mode can reduce most malware defensive methods to subvert scanners.

    Other good alternative scanners in addition to the ones mentioned;
    Norman Malware Cleaner
    Dr. Web Cure It
    A2 Anti Malware

    So, just to satisfy my curiosity about what works and is effective, (and to also maybe help others who get this problem),
    What did you do, and what worked?

    Gladiator Security Forum has very good HJT experts that could help u cleanse your system of this infection. If u do decide to post there, be patient as it's a busy place at times.
