Current: After running the mbam scan and rebooting, I can't log in to windows. When I select a user, the personal settings start to load and then I am immediately logged off.

How it started:

I started receiving a security alert dialogue box upon logging into Windows:

"Security alert
Security Warning!
Worm.Win32.Netsky detected on your machine.
This virus is distributed via the Internet through email and Active-x objects.
The worm has its own smtp engine which means it gathers emails from your local computer and re-distributes itself. In worst cases this worm can allow attachers to access your computer, stealing passwords and personal data. Viruses can damage your confidential data and work on your computer. Continue working in unprotected mode is very dangerous.
It is necessary to perform a system scan."

After logging in, additional warnings to download the latest antivirus software popped up:
"Your computer is infected! Windows has detected an infection of spyware! It is recommended to use special antispyware tools to prevent data loss. Windows will now download and install the most up-to-date antispyware for you.”

I tried to launch Taskmanager, but it has been disabled by the administrator.

I am running Vibe anti virus which found 3 trojans on a deep scan which were quarantined and deleted. Then I found your site and am following the Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide. The TFC cleaned out 551mb of data. I saved the mbam and root repeal logs but I can't access them on the desktop since I can't getted logged in.


I tried to log in rebooting in both Safe with Networking and Safe modes without success. I'd love your input. Thanks!
