I am a network engineer and have come across a desktop that was badly infected with numerous virii/spy/mal/etc-ware.
This machine had braviax, ntos.exe, several downloaders, several trojans, a rootkit, and more. This machine also had c:\windows\system32\wnspoem present containing audio.dll and video.dll.
I ran numerous tools including combofix.
Combofix asked to reboot the computer, and after the reboot I no longer receive a login window and am unable to use the pc. I do see in one combofix tutorial that the windows recovery console is necessary to repair any problems caused by combofix, yet this tutorial does not tell what procedures to do while in the recovery console after the machine will no longer boot.
Is there anything I can do to restore this computer to a running state? or should I just start the rebuild now?
