Some of the symptoms are a fake icon in the taskbar saying that I am infected and to run cleaner tool, my wallpaper is changed to a black background with a centered image saying I am infected, named ahtn.htm? Things like my registry and task manager, amongst other things, are disabled, though I can get into these using RRT(Restriction Removal Tool) Every minute or so it pops up the my documents folder, and I can't even search the internet for help, as all links in search engines are altered. Only by typing the site URL directly am I able to get there, and even that doesnt work most of the time. I was able to download a copy of HJT and MBAM onto the other PC, but when I try to run, nothing happens. I've tried redownloading a hundred times but it didn't work. I tried downloading MWB from a different link, and even though this time the setup ran and seemed to install, it only created a blank program files directory. Now, by using RRT, I can tell that something is closing it almost instantly. As far as the other copy creating a blank directory, I just have no clue. I really have no idea what to do and have been doing everything I can think of to fix this. I have performed multiple full system virus and adware scans using NoAdware and AVG, but it doesnt remove the problem. It seems to help, but within a short time everything it previously removed is back.
I'm really hoping someone can give me some advice as to something I can do to get these things installed so I can get rid of this. All help and advice is greatly appreciated!
