comment How can I remove “Microsoft Antimalware”: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\Microsoft Antimalware?
I'd love to, but it hasn't worked. :'( I threw the +1 at you b/c it accomplished something, but I still haven't been able to get rid of the thing.

However, there's a switch to make this against an online database as opposed to vs a cd?

Still, I doubt I need to format the PC. While formatting isn't a huge issue, seeing as how I already have backups, I like to learn how to cure the PC of a problem, if possible, so I can save other victims some time. There are missing steps I have yet to perform. For example, running anti-malware programs in Safe Mode. I'm not sure why StackExchange is hard selling Malware Bytes. Must be sponsored....

It's kind of obvious to me that the other posters have been wrong in their responses. I don't have any reason to believe that these keys are associated with authentic Microsoft software, and they haven't posted any sources verifying that they are associated with them. I spoke with the other people who use the PC, and they have no memory of having ever installed Windows Defender or Microsoft Security Essentials. There's no Add/Remove Programs entry, even under Windows Components. I'm sure I would have seen it if it had come in, and I haven't found any resolved issue like this on the net.

NStorm, Thanks for the response. Actually, I've been experiencing some very unusual issues. For example, when I start the machine, there's a 2-minute delay before I can open any programs. When I double-click something, it never opens, even though the signal is sent.... Also, the computer has begun to lag a lot more. I've already given Malware Bytes and several other softwares a shot....

@grawity You pose an excellent question. I'll check on it, tonight. I ran the script, here: explosiveknowledge.net/main/2012/07/22/mse_troubleshooting. The poster said that there were a lot of 'nasty errors' associated with the keys he'd listed. Unfortunately, only 2-3 lines of the batch file did anything, and the keys are all still there.... I'm not as worried about it, as 3 people are suggesting that it may be authentic Microsoft.

@Moab If it's just a leftover, why am I unable to install it because it's "being used"? I've checked, and neither of those programs are installed on my PC. It's possible that Windows Defender was installed at some point. Can you source that?

@grawity, I checked add/remove programs, including windows components, and it's not showing up there. I believe it's only malware and not a false positive.

I can't find a program called "Microsoft Antimalware" on the internet, and I haven't installed one. If it has been installed, it's the result of a security update.
