File name: crss.drv
Threat name: Trojan-Spy.HTML.Sunfraud.a"

How do i get rid of this if i cannot get online. This junk has messed up my security settings and won't let me get on line due to a firewall. Even if i turn the firewall off i still can't connect.

All you really need to do to delete it is to restore your computer to an earlier date (a time before you downloaded it accidently). It'll restart your computer, then voila, Windows PC Defender gone. (:
