The symptoms that I can find so far are as follows:
1. Whenever I try to go to a majority of sites that allow me to download spyware tools, forums related to spyware etc, I get redirects.
2. USB drive is immediately infected with m.exe. Didn't realize this and infected another laptop I have with the said virus. (I was able to remove this before it became a big problem).
3. Whenever I try to run most spyware tools, the tools will just close. Or not even open at all. Installation of most of these apps (SUPERAntiSpyware, MalwareBytes, Antivir, etc.)
Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is a major problem and I have limited access to it. I can only get access after 5pm central time, and only on this coming Thursday. I don't know if I should install logmein or another remote access tool to give me access to the computer while I am not here. Any tips on the quick resolution are appreciated.
UPDATE: Well, I was able to figure out that there is a hidden driver that was loaded. It had a 32 bit GUID for a name. After I removed it and reboot I am able to install software again. I have installed Antivir and am running SUPERAntiSpyware now. After that I will run Malware Bytes. Antivir just popped up and found vumer.dll and I quarantined it.
