Internet Security Suite - Fake Anti-virus

Well I just ran across a new version of the old fake anti-virus software.  This one did not even attempt to stop me from installing MalWareBytes Anti-Malware.  It installed, updated and nailed this sucker!
This is what the virus would do.  It would bring up this screen and gray out the rest of the screen.  Alt, control, delete was disabled. 

Here it is running right along MBAM.  Note that over 800 infections were detected!  Wow!  Then when I told MBAM to "remove all infections" it shut down the pop up.  Then, after a restart of the computer, the computer was working normally once again.
