I was trying to clean a very nasty virus/Trojan that had control of my PC. It was actually playing audio files of different speaking parts, and had a program named "dlodlfesk" running in the background that no matter how many times I stopped it, it started back up by itself.
When I finally tried rebooting, as Windows shut down it said "Windows is now updating with 3 updates". I didn't recall having downloaded any, so I quickly hit the power button and killed it. Since bootup (regular or Safe Mode), I get the "can't write to memory" error each time any application or browser tries to open svchost.exe. So, even my Quickbooks and other Aps fail.
Where do I start?
Thanks so much - this is my business computer and I'm screwed...

Hi there,

I suggest you head over to the malware forums. Read this thread first.
Following what is outlined there you will get rid of at least the majority of your malware problems.
If the problem still persists post a Hijack this log in this forum for the experts to analyze.
If it has been 3 days and you haven't received help, post in the waiting room and someone will get to you.

Just a heads up ... replying to your own thread will likely make you wait LONGER as it makes you appear to be receiving help already.
