Background: A couple months ago, I got a Virtumonde (sp?) virus and was able to get rid of it following the the steps outlined on this site. This time, I didnt get the chance to use all of the steps specified here. This is what happened.
I was running a drive cleaner (HD Cleaner) which I have used many times before. At some point after it finished, I returned to find the display size increased by about 300%. That is, I could only see about half of what I should be seeing. I tried to resize through Control Panel/Display/Settings but the "OK" button at the bottom of the box was no longer there...so I couldn't resize. I realized then that I had a virus so I started following the steps recomended here. I was able to run ATF-Cleaner but when I tried to run Malwarebytes, the display was so large I could not select the "RUN" button. I did not have the option to scroll down to where it should be. I then tried to reboot in "SAFE MODE", but that was a no-go. It would start to boot and then feeze. I tried safe mode several times to no avail. Now when I boot and try to load windows normally, I only get my desktop background without icons, taskbar or "START" button. I ONLY see the desktop background image. I'm affraid I'm stuck...any suggestions?
