Right off see if you can access Safe Mode, where the malware is less active. At startup tap the F8 key about once per half-second, then select Safe Mode with Networking from the menu that will appear.
To make sure you have an accurate view of files there, make sure you can View Hidden Files. Also uncheck “Hide Extensions for Known File Types”
To keep them from interfering with the repairs, be sure to temporarily disable all antivirus/anti-spyware softwares while these steps are being completed. This can usually be done through right clicking the software’s Taskbar icons, or accessing each software through Start – Programs. Here are some antivirus disable tips if needed.
Click here and download the installer for Gmer to your desktop, then click that file to run Gmer.
Once the opening scan finishes, click on Scan (again, before scanning, make sure all other running programs are closed and no other actions like a scheduled antivirus scan will occur while this scan completes. Also do not use your computer during the scan).
When completed, click on the Copy button and rightclick on your Desktop, choose “New” > Text document. Once the file is created, open it and rightclick again and choose Paste. Copy the information and post it here please.
