Serious Advanced Virus Removal Infection - HELP!
by ryank79 - 8/16/09 6:55 AM
My computer has been hit the Avanced Virus Removal and everything I try to do to get rid of it doesn't work.
I started by downloading Malwarebytes and running it. As soon as it starts to scan it disappears. I then renamed the .exe file when installing with the same result. After that I tried right clicking on the short cut, hitting properties, and then find target to get into malware.exe folder from there - no luck.
I then went to my program files; C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, hoping it would be there - nothing.
After that I read that a system restore can help, but when I go to restore my computer through help and support it says the application is infected and won't open it.
I've also tried other spyware/malware removal software such as SuperAntiSpyware, Avira, and SpyTools with the same results.
I'm using a Dell XPS 410 and it runs on Windows XP. Everything I've tried to do has been while the computer is in "safe mode with networking."
I'm losing my mind. Any help and suggestions are much appreciated. Thanks.
