A neighbor ended up getting this latest version & called me to deal with it. The Bitdefender Rescue CD should work as long as you have a video setup that uses a resolution greater than 800x600. If you don't, it will run through the entire detection process, but you will not be able to access the buttons at the bottom of the screen to remove them. I ended up using the Trinity Rescue Kit 3.4 and running the command-line version of Bitdefender from there. It found and removed the problem files. Malwarebyes with the then-latest definitions could not find it.
