Well, while another computer is still broken, the one I'm using to try and get the information to repair it has no become infected. Avast! continually tells me that my mhd.sys file is infected with a Trojan, but it cannot repair and moving it to the chest does nothing. Trying to open up any folder simply causes explorer.exe to crash and for the virus report to appear again. Deleting it does absolutely nothing either.

So, please. HALP.

Have you tried doing your anti-virus and spyware scans in Safe Mode?

I ran a boot-time scan for Avast! when the problem began to surface, and attempted to boot in safe mode a while after that but it hanged while doing so and I impatiently gave up on it since I was still waiting for instruction to fix my other computer.

I'll attempt scans in safe mode again once I finally have the other computer's repair complete.
