Well, I think the title says it all. Anyways, I have ctfmona.exe. I have gone into regedit and removed the ctfmona file and its additional add on. I unlocked my task manager so I could end the antivirus process that tells me I need to install its antivirus software. I also went in system32 and deleted the file with "bug" icon along with ones labeled ctfmona... Now, I know that doesn't fully remove the virus and that I need to run antivirus programs. Herein lies the problem, my system crashes whenever I try to run my installed symantec antivirus utility. In addition to this, I cannot use the internet as the virus seems to have disabled that function. I click on it and it begins to open with a blank white box and immediately closes. So that means I cannot download anything, which was recommended to me last time I posted. I've tried saving avg antivirus to my zip drive and transferring it over that way. I got an error when trying to install, however, just as I did with malwarebytes' anti-malware when I tried the same thing with that program. I am basically wondering, should I stop wasting my time trying to save my computer and just restart over again and re-format it or is there any hope?
