Hello, thank you, bless you, and just to let you know, I *do* worship the ground where BleepingComputer technicians walk.

I am attempting to fix a family computer that has several viruses. It was mostly used by a sibling, and it was when they were using it that all the viruses/malware contaminated the computer and made it inoperable. (or at least to them.) I did not give this computer much passing care because I have my own laptop (what I am typing on now) and since they had screwed themselves over, why should I bother? The sibling in question just took up my mother's laptop, and so my mother kinda lost her own computer. When the laptop was being squirrely (2 keys knocked out, etc) my mother sent it off to Best Buy, but it was only then that the dearth of computers was noticed. So, in an act of heroism and practicality, I attempt to repair the computer.

in media res P.S. - I am mediocre with the computer - I have enough technical skills to get me where I need to be, so the helpful god/goddess that responds doesnt have to dumb it down to, say, my mother's understanding.

It is a perfectly good computer from about 2005 (maybe 2006) with XP.

Computer is squirrely, slow, internet access is hindered (does not show pictures), there was a blue screen that said "there are malware or spyware detected on this computer. please download anti-virus software".

-First course of action was to use Spy Bot S&D 1.6.0 :
+downloaded fine, then all of a sudden I could not open applications.
-to remedy this, I googled the problem, and found exefix_xp as a solution.
+Applications now work
-went to internet, googled "hijackthis forum", recognized the website name, attempted to click it...
+could not access site. Got some cliche "internet doesnt work" page, (404? i think its called)
-at this point, I get frustrated, and decide to download all necessary de-bugging files on my laptop and use USB Flashdrive to transfer to bugged comp.
-Computer now has to restart b/c of SpyBot
+when it does restart, it takes multiple times, and only after about 5 cycles of it getting to the screen with a big "e" on it (this screen has the options for start-up options and BIOS settings) does it finally let me get to the black screen where I can decide what mode to start windows in.
-At this point I flip out, think that SpyBot has removed something important, so I go into SafeMode and uninstall Spy Bot S&D
-Now, still in SafeMode, I install the new apps. (Spy Bot again, and Hijack This) and run them.
+SpyBot cleans 17 viruses, and computer restarts.
-I run Hijack This (following Hijack this tutorial on the site) and get log.


NEW symptom: cannot start windows in anything other than safemode

After following steps from previous misplaced post:

-I enabled firewall on the computer

-I used DDS to get DDS.txt and attach.txt

-tried to get the EXACT message on the background, but the computer would not let me access windows normally
