Live Enterprise Suite is a rogue security program from the same family as Ghost Antivirus and Internet Antivirus Pro. This program is promoted through the use of malware and advertisements that pretend to be online anti-malware scanners. Regardless of how Live Enterprise Suite is installed on your computer, it uses aggressive techniques to make it difficult to remove it. First, it disables Task Manager so that you cannot end the processes associated with this program. It will also install a random named malware that is created in random paths under the Windows folder. This process, along with the main Live Enterprise Suite, will terminate known security executables as well as constantly terminate Explorer.exe when it restarts itself so that you cannot access your Windows desktop or access any of the programs residing on it. Last, but not least, the TDL3 rootkit has been found with this rogue that may make it even harder to remove.

It is possible that the infection you are trying to remove will not allow you to download files on the infected computer. If this is the case, then you will need to download the files suggested in this guide to another computer and then transfer them to the infected computer via a CD/DVD, external drive, or USB flash drive. If this is not possible, see the   RescueCD Software section on home page.

Step 1.

SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scanner can be downloaded from a different computer and run on the infected computer. The scanner does NOT install anything on your Start Menu or Program Files and does NOT need to be uninstalled. It runs from the CD and requires NO internet connection. If the infected computer can not download, then this is a solution. Simply download the portable scanner and copy it to a USB/CD. NOTE: The portable scanner is random named to prevent the malware from stopping the scanner from running. For more software similar to this see the RescueCD software section on home page which scan an infected system and can recover personal data due to infection/defective or failing hard drive.
