I figured it out: don't download anything from these sites trying to sell you stuff. Reboot in safe mode - F8 during startup or (Dell) start/all programs/run: type in msconfig then boot tab - run in safe mode.Then go to System Restore; choose a date before the SS problem and run it. All fixed!

Went in and did a manual removal, seemed to kill the main program, however, there are still entries in the registry that will give you dll errors on startup. use autoruns or ccleaner to manually remove the registry keys.
