I really need help with this fast! This machine is a super fast P4 that has never been sluggish in the past and is still brand new. I had some dialer installed on my computer without my permission, and got some Winfixer/Vundo variant -- a new one that has never happened before. What it did was install all these memory resident scripts all over my machine, and added itself to threads within main system functions. The following is happening I really need someone's help to get rid of it. I got rid of all traces of the virus/trojan, but it's like pulling up weed stems and not the roots, there is without a doubt remnants of this script resident that I can't locate and get rid of! I don't want to do any damage and all the diagnostics say everything is fine but it's so obvious it is still slow and part of it remains and I need help from someone that has some type of understanding and experience that can track down the rest of the trojan/virus to get the machine back into it's original condition without forcing me to lose information or time, because it just seems things are getting worse. I've never posted on these forums before but I am all out of hope, resources, and time relative to upcoming projects to figure out what needs to be done. Please help!
1) Windows used to loads lightening fast (4 seconds) now it takes about 20-30 minutes to finish loading. I can't reformat the machine because there is simply way too much material on the machine and it would take months and months to rebuild and I have 3 days to finish a project that requires all of that software --- it's not an option! I have no idea what scripts are responsible for this!
2) Whenever I turned system restore *ON*, the configuration from the infection date returns -- it may be hidden somehow in C:\System Volume Information, which seems impossible --- something is stored somewhere and I don't know what is causing this!
3) My Antivirus and my firewall keep getting disabled then are turned on, this is solid proof something is happening.
4) There is a weird window that pops up when Windows loads in Japaneese that I have to click "OK" to in order to continue.
Once again I cannot reformat my computer, the configuration, software, and information cannot be backed up right now and it would take forever to get it back to it's optimum configuration for me which I am very happy with on an absolute level and am afraid of having to start over because it would take way to long at the expense of so many upcoming projects and opportunities -- and I had an infection, but remnants from it still remain obviously and I need someone to recognize that and help me get the machine back in its original configuration and position.
Thank you! I attached tons of supporting screenshots and information -- please help!
