Success!! Yippee!

After googling to death resolutions for this virus with all remedies failing for my situation I finaly just decided I would figure out how to outsmart this dang thing myself. I figured out how to disable this thing and didn't suffer any losses except about 2 days troubles. I fugured a really easy way to bypass the scripts running and then was able to delete all the files in dos in safe mode. I also ran a safe mode Restore but I don't think I really even had to do that.

There were two files I couldn't figure out how to locate in DOS (I mostly just know how to turn the computer on and off, don't know much about this DOS stuff. Too much typing) so I still have them probably somewhere on my box but the heart of the thing was killed and it's dead dead dead.

WOW! I'm pretty excited about this. Two of my friends lost all their data on their hard drives because of this same Virus and the loss was extensive.

I'm not sure where to post the resolution to this type of virus in this forum. Perhaps someone could tell me where I should post it. But it works fast, easy and safe. It's simple too, just like me. :)

Anyway, glad you guys are here. Keep up the good work.

I downloaded some "free software" and ended up with computer acting strange immediately. High cpu and no activity etc. Somehow I found out I had these new files and folders in root of my two drives. I can't delete them (keep coming back). I found out the fix is evidently Combofix -dot-exe. I read the whole list of things to do and did those and now I am at the part to post my dds data. I am supposed to wait for a helper before doing anything else per the instructions.
So here is the dds.txt included below and the attach.txt is zipped and attached per directions.

Any help to safely run the combofix and any other things I should do - :thumbsup:

Thank you


here is paste of dds.txt :
