Virus program is actually a really good one ..handles registry, infections and spyware: Filesclab - Twister Antivirus trojan

I have tried running AVG on that computer it says some bullcrap about how it cannot install it.

I can tell you some suss things that are running under program manager:




the least i cud do was run ad-aware...it found alot of files to remove to...i cant believe this happened all this morning -_-

What were you doing?

Well you say you have some important files, if you have windows XP on that computer u can just drag those files into the drive where your cd drive is and windows will burn the files for you.

If that does not work and u have lots of stuff you need to backup, simply open up your computer and unplug your power supply and everything and pull out your harddrive. Plug it into the computer you are using(remember to correctly set the pins to slave), and drag all the files you want into it. Then reformat that computer, I see no reason why you should waste all that time on cleaning out that virus unless there was no way possible that u can backup your old files and you can't live with having that computer reformatted.

find an av that you can make a bootable floppy or cd and use that to remove the viruses
The Ultimate Hard Drive Utility PowerMax 4.23. (It now has the ability to clean a Boot Sector virus on the quick erase option.)
The best browser Netscape 8
Have you accidently delete something? Look here (trial. the better one) and here(free)

Can also use trendmicro. Its an online scan that removes also, they make money by you purchasing a product that stops it from happening but the removal is free. Has to be done in IE though (so you dont waste your time with other better browsers).

go to start, run, type msconfig. Go to startup, click disable all

dont reboot yet

go to c:windows and delete the whole prefetch folder. it will come back when you restart.

run whatever scanner you have, adware, spybot, etc. Reboot. then boot into safemode, run the scans again

what is the name of the virus?

if you cant get to the net i think it is using the LSP which is a ***** to fix but it can be dont. its the layered service provider

download the trial version of the spysweeper from webroot with the computer you are using to go online then install it on the sick computer.
Then download the AVG and it's up-to-date definition from majorgeeks.com, do the installation and execution in Safe mode. And do what is suggested above , like disable all startup......
