I got hit with another HTML/fakeAV trojan this evening. McAffee says it is deleted, but I'm sure it's already trashed the startup files as it did last time. As the same phony website popped up and the harddrive went nuts. The computer works fine currently, but a Malware bytes scan finds 2 infected registry data files.

The same thing happened about a month ago, and after being turned off, the computer would not restart. I had to have Mobile PC Medic come and start the computer with a startup CD. Is there any way I can download/make such a thing without knowing if my current files are currupted or not? Or do I get to spend another $100 to turn on my computer?
