My machine was infected with edmond.exe and the other programs that go along with it (desktop.exe, mfiltis.exe or whatever it's called, etc). I couldn't remove them using McAfee virus scan, Adaware, Spybot S&D or Hijackthis. So I did a search online and found instructions on how to get rid of them. Still nothing was working. One site told me to dowload a program called Kapskersy AV Personal. I did, and installed it and then was asked to reboot. When I did, Windows would open but then freeze up right away. Windows starts to load my programs such as MSN messenger and then loads Kapskersy but it starts going so slow. I can't close anything. I can't use Ctrl + Alt + delete to cancel anything. When I click on any program (such as Hijackthis), it won't open. Control panel won't open. Mozilla won't open. I just click and nothing happens. I always end up manually shutting off my computer and turning it back on, and the same thing keeps happening.
So I tried to reboot in safe mode using F8, but it won't work. It gives me the option, but then just brings up a black screen listing a bunch of files or whatever.
I really don't know what to do anymore. Could someone please try to help me?
Sorry if my description isn't very technical, but I'm not great with computers.
Thank you so much to whoever replies!
