I have run Avast and removed a couple of viruses. Cant run Malwarebytes. Can't even run the malwarebyte setup program. If I run CHKDSK I get a message saying it can't run bacause it only detected Raw data. I can now get into Safe mode and normal mode. No matter which I boot upto there is always a iexplore.exe file running in the back ground even tho none are actually open. If I do open IE it will crash after a few minutes. I have removed and re-installed IE8. When trying to install AVG 9 I get an error saying it can't be loaded until Malware defender is removed. I don't have a program called malware defender, I did and it was removed. From doing some reading I have found some entries refering to a malware that can cause the false RAW Drive. But I haven't found anyone with any real solutions yet.

Please help.

After doing a lot or reading and searching I tried a suggestion I read that worked. Dowloaded combofix to the desktop, renamed it to SVHOST.com Ran the file. That fixed all of the above mentioned problems, was ablel to run a chkdsk, drive showed up as NTFS and I was able reload Malwarebytes which is currently running.
