Hi I made BAD CHOICE when downloading from a torrent site recently and installed an unknown number of viruses onto my computer they seem to be self replicating and every time i delete them or restart the computer the registry files come back within minutes and everything is being hacked including NORTON ANTIVIRUS. However the only reason i'm not completley taken over is because of norton antivirus. I have it notify me whenever something tries to connect using svchost.exe and also
something called alu_schedulersvc.exe keeps trying to connect. I have been working on this for 2 days now tried every anti virus program and method recomended on this site and still no luck. They seem to be undetectable because they pose as Google,Norton,Symantec,Sony software.
The closest i've come to finding out the problem is the startup list in hijack this utility comes up with MANY MANY MANY duplicate windows controls and norton controls i cant tell which is which.
Also there are several folders that seem to be empty that contain data and it tells me they are write protected. They are the following SONY EPSON MESSANGER XEROX all in the program files and also some folder in the common files folder are write protected or acces is denied its almost as if there is another administrator compromising my privilages.?!?
I have my logs available whenever you like and have made all the preperations listed in your starter guide.
Thanks for any help
here is the dds
