I'm sure we all know about this piece of nasty malware. Well, i finally managed to get the bugger off my system using this guide and program: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/malware-re...ntispyware-2009
But after its gone, i'm still having problems. I had to resort to that guide, because the file locations highlighted in the manual removal of the malware were not present on my computer, neither were the registry entries - but the malware was. Now that I used the antimalware program, there appears to be no trace of the malware remaning.
Save I still cannot do any type of system restore (Safe mode or otherwise), cannot open any of my antivirus programs BUT Malwarebytes and SpyBot (which are reporting no problems), nor any other programs, such as Xfire, MSN, AIM, etc.
I am currently using an internet cafe to find a solution.
What can I do?
Additional Info: In the middle of the crisis, i was unable to open any programs without an update demand from Microsoft Office XP and frontpage, in which it could not locate a file called "PROPLUS". Even after transporting the program from this cafe to that computer, it still would not right itself, and i was forced to remove microsoft office completely in order to access any other programs, therefore it is important to me that i can perform a system restore, as I have lost the install disk.
Any assistance would be highly valued, I have been at this for close to six hours now.
