Great site and forums are A+! Now down to the nitty gritty... First off, I am running windows XP and I unfortunately downloaded a torrent that turned out to be the nasty XP AV2009 and not what I thought it was going to be. Like an idiot, I did not scan it before trying to install it. I know, I know, you're first words are "That's what you get!!" and I agree. With that said, I have indeed read the removal guide for 2009 and the 2008 versions. I have downloaded MalwareBytes, HijackThis, SUPER Antispyware, SpyDoctor, AFT (ATF) cleaner (what ever it is called), Spybot Search and Destroy, and several other mentioned progs I've ran across throughout my forum trolling. I am running into a few different hinderances to the removal of this junk.
1) Cable internet is down, due to the recent Hurricane Ike which ravaged the coast here in Texas, I've downloaded the aformentioned programs while at work onto a flashdrive.
2) I cannot install most of them because I do not have admin rights due to the malware changing it, hence I cannot get MalwareBytes loaded and run (weaksauce!).
3) I cannot boot in Safe Mode, all I get is a wall of text in DOS after selecting safe mode.
Other symptoms I am experiencing are as follows: Cannot restore past the infection date (had to switch to "classic view" to even navigate to system restore), cannot run task manager (disabled by admin, lame), and cannot run either regedit or msconfig. I have EndItAll2 and I am unable to kill the process called MSAV09 (not sure of exact name as it was 2am when I gave up).
ANY help would be greatly appreciated! If there is any other information that would help you out, let me know and I'll get it asap, due to no net at home, it'll be a day by day progression.
Thank you very much. /rant off
