Hey everyone,

This is my first post in this forum. I have a virus that appears to be fairly common and I have done my research on it.

This virus is preventing sites like this one, mcafee and avg from opening on my desktop cpu.

I read BleepingComputer's Rapid antivirus removal instructions before posting this thread, but my cpu would not download the software because of this virus apparently.

Now, when I reboot my cpu, it becomes inoperable after booting normally and once my desktop screen pops up, an blank explorer webpage opens up involuntarily and the CPU just freezes.

Is there a way to fix this virus in safe mode?

I cannot afford to have everything wiped out.

Can you get into Safemode w/networking?
Not for Vista
--------------------------


Please print out and follow these instructions: "How to use SDFix". <- for Windows 2000/XP ONLY.
When using this tool, you must use the Administrator's account or an account with "Administrative rights"
  • Disconnect from the Internet and temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any real time protection programs before performing a scan.
  • Please be patient as the scan may take up to 20 minutes to complete.
  • When the process is complete, the SDFix report log will open in Notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
  • If SDFix is unable to run after rebooting from Safe Mode, run SDFix in either Mode, and type F, then press Enter for it to finish the final stage and produce the report.
  • The SDFix report log (Report.txt) will open in Notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder.
  • Please copy and paste the contents of Report.txt in your next reply.
  • Be sure to re-enable you anti-virus and and other security programs before connecting to the Internet.

My computer could not download SDfix while in safe made with networking. This virus appears to have a stranglehold on my desktop cpu.

So much so, that I could open yahoo.com but it blocked bleepingcomputer.com.

Looks like i'll have to open my wallet. Thanks though.

Do you have a thumbdrive or a computer with a CD burner?
You could run Malwarebytes from one of those
