Well, I got hit with the koobface virus, which then attached the virus response 2009 spyware. A friend came over today and we spent 10 hours hacking on the computer and believe that
the viruses are gone (tinyproxy.exe, bolivar 28, and avrlabs.exe) but now my computer will
not function except in the safe mode with networking!
When I boot up in normal mode, it freezes at the wallpaper stage and will not boot any further.
I have barely an idea how I got all the malicious off after multiple calls to microsoft, but am
now at a grinding halt on how to get the freezing to stop. Someone helping today suggested
stripping my hard drive and reconfiguring it......NO WAY!!
I have Zone Labs for my saftey and ran the malwarebytes, ewido, and saftey.live.com, to get rid of the initial
problems, but can someone help me with the frozen start-up? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Honestly, what motivates these rotten people to do this to others?
Thanks so much from a novice user!
