First off, sorry that I even have to post this. I know that there are tons of read this first guides, and that this virus has even been addressed before, but i cant use any of these right now.

Antimalware Doctor seems to have installed itself and in order to go through the steps to get rid of it, I need to be able to use my computer. The problem is that every time I boot it up, windows 7 starts up and says that it has encountered an error and needs to restart in 1 minute. Then explorer is not responsive for the one minute that I have and then the computer automatically shuts down. there have been a few times that explorer has responded though, and I was wondering if there was any way to just disable this autoshutdown.

If it helps any, I did use wubi to install ubuntu within windows, and that seems to be working fine and I can access all of my windows files from ubuntu. I just haven't really messed with ubuntu that much and dont really know how to do anything with it other than basic use.

Is it even worth saving? or should I just grab all of my files off it and reinstall windows. Is there any chance of this infecting my external if i choose to go this way?

thanks in advance!
