I have infected my computer with a very problematic virus, after my mate downloaded something off emule and the rest has been very interesting,

first thing it did, it cut my wireless internet connection, and made windows not being able to control wireless network options, said WZC was disabled,
even though I tried to MANUALLY start WZC, it gave an error 1016

After I realized my NOD32 was disabled at the startup, I had the sense that this was a virus infection,

When I plugged my land cable to go to ESET's site to download the virus software I purchased a while ago, the download went ok until at the end of the installation new NOD32 couldn't 'start its services' and aborted its installation.

Now I knew I was dealing with a tough one.

I monitored all the processes running in the back, as far as I can see with task manager, I googled them, and found many different opinions, one file I found was mdelk.exe file which was situated in my system32 folder, and I couldn't get rid of it, at this stage while I was monitoring my net limiter program to see any internet usage, mdelk.exe started itself, and I saw a huge amount of outgoing data from my computer via this .exe, I couldn't neither filter it down with netlimiter, or couldn't kill it...

so much things happened, I am really worried that at this stage, any private info went outside my computer?!

almost every single removal tool that I downloaded didn't work, or has been stopped by the virus,

so I searched even more and came across a new windows removal tool off microsoft,


this ran, and found the infected files, but the scan always has been stopped, frozen, that I always had to shut down my computer, so I couldn't find any infected files nor it deleted them, (found 2 infected as far as I could go with the scan via this tool)

I tried Safe Mode, when it was loading it on command prompt, it all of a sudden said press esc not to load SPTD.sys
I did, but now BLUE SCREEN CAME UP and prevented me to EVER start via safe mode,

I was confused,

I put the system CD, and just restored my computer, without caring much about the data that I would lose,

Now its been just restored, only to find out my D: drive had very strange hidden files with long files names with numbers and letters randomly, and my old files (when I did the system restore before with the same factory CD, it deletes everything, and just puts the windows, never actually saw the files ever again until this time around?!!)

then I put Acer Disk formatter tool, to format that partition, and restored ONCE MORE,

only to see same files, or similar files still hanging around,

I read something about really BAD infections that stays with the computer even after usual Restores...

I just read a similar threat here,

So I decided to download SDFix.exe to run that scanner now, and see what happens,
