it was all working fine before i downloaded that virus. in fact i was trying to rectify an nv4 bsod error which kept happening when i was trying to play a game. then i got had by the virus which was flashing up warning windows and had taken my system controls, i got rid of most of it but couldn't restore my start menu controls which is when i contacted gtg. Not long after my pc had begun to work again i tried to play a game with daemon and it crashed just after loading. thinking maybe it was the game itself i uninstalled then went to reinstall with daemon, nothing happened! So i tried another game again it crashed on loading. so then i tried it with nero image drive but with the same results. I've read online that daemon comes with some nasty adware attatched, didn't know if this had something to do with it? also after my latest escapade was quite worried about reinstalling it!

Honestly, I'm not really too familiar with daemon tools. I know its buggy, but thats about it. If its really important, we can restore the system to an earlier stage and see if it works then

it's not the end of the world if i can't get it working it just means i can't play games or films without the disc, what worries me a little is the fact that nero image drive also wouldn't work which seems to imply that there is some other problem other than the software itself.

To be honest i'm just happy that my pc is working well again so if i can't resolve this it ain't really a problem!

are there any other virtual drives out there worth trying instead maybe? The fact that daemon comes with adware has kind of put me of the idea of using it again anyway.

just one other question if i may.
stopzilla still says i have 114 infections, from brilliant digital adware to vundo.j virus. to remove them with stopzilla i will have to pay for it, being a bit skint at the moment this is a bit of a prob. Can i remove these myself somehow and if they are quarantined by stopzilla would another anti spyware detect them, i've run avg scans and the eset online ones and they pick up nothing. Also does being in quarantine mean that they are safe and cannot damage my pc?

Uninstall stopzilla, don't pay for it, its not worth having

Can i remove these myself somehow and if they are quarantined by stopzilla would another anti spyware detect them,

Will you try the following for me, its a good program and free

If you think it's safe to uninstall stopzilla and do it again i'm quite happy to do so. my concerns lie with stopzilla saying i have the vundo.j virus and a hijacker on my ie system policies and on disable task manager system policies all of these accordingly in my registry files!

Knowing that you quite obviously have a far better understanding of these things than myself i am happy to do whatever you suggest, just didn't want to go ahead without checking first.

You can uninstall Stopzilla, nothing bad will happen

Your cracked version of devil may cry is a virus, You need to delete it

The rest are just cookies, which arent really a threat and a part of normal browsing. The rest are leftover registry entries. It should be able to take care of all of those
