OK Illinois,If you have a functional PC and can keep posting,I think we can get this PC back up and running!
Illinois,only if you want to,Download HijackThis to your PC and Burn it onto a CD-R or a Floopy Disc!
Ultimately,if you can burn HijackThis to a Floppy,you can use that floppy to Scan the PC and Save the Log,The Log should be saved to the Floppy so you can take the Floppy back to your PC and Copy&Paste the Log to this Post!
Also,this may prove to be a useful little utility and should fit on a floppy with HijackThis:
Download the Hoster from here:http://www.funkytoad...load/hoster.zip
Press "Restore Original Hosts" and press "OK". Exit Program.
This will restore the original Hosts file.
Start the Infected PC up in Normal Mode but leave the Internet Connection Unplugged!
Scan the Infected PC with HijackThis and Save the Log to the Floppy Disc!
Take the Floppy back to your PC and Post the Contents of that Log!
Before doing anything else,Run the Hoster Program!
Something I have had success with lately is to go to Safe Mode and Launch the Antivirus but dont run it yet,you just want to open it and leave it be for a minute!
Open the TaskManager>>Click Processes>>Locate these 2 Processes:
Right Click each and select End Process!
Now when you end the Explorer Process,the TaskBar and Desktop will disappear,this is completely normal and totally safe to do!
Just make sure to leave the Task Manager Open,so you can use it to Shut Down the PC!
With all this in place,Go to the Antivirus Program that will still be open,this is the best chance the Antivirus Program is going to have to remove any Infections it Identifies!
Also,some files and folders to look for on the PC:
From Add\Remove Programs:
Files and Folders from Various locations:
C:\Program Files\Search Maid
C:\Program Files\Virtual Maid
C:\Program Files\Security IGuard
I hope this will help you out a little,atleast it will be a good start!!!
Post back with any questions!!!
