I recently got a trojan that opens a backdoor and downloads trojans. This trojan also deletes all anti malware tools you use such as AVG, mbam, and HJT (hijackthis).

I would have posted a, HJT log, but i am not able to because it got deleted. I looked in the task manager for suspicious .exe's and found wscntfy.exe. I ended it, but it opened right back up so i searched it and found it was be a virus. (most likely. i have no antivirus programs that will even open to scan it)

i tried reinstalling my SP3, but the virus closed out of that too before it finished.

Please help me.

I fixed it myself. it took a few cmd commands and a few programs, but i got it. I also reinstalled SP3 just to replace the infected file with the file of original condition.

The only problem now is my java apps now make me bluescreen (sorta. there is no actual "blue" screen. it just shuts down and restarts.)

Also a lot of my other programs can't run more than 1 of themselves or they freeze. like opening a new window in firefox, or accidentally opening 2 of the same item.
