Hello, About a week ago my computer got infected with the Zlob.AR virus. I tried to remove it with Malwarebytes Anti-malware but that didn't seem to solve the problem totally. Then I tried Windows Defender and Windows Malicious software removal tool,however both would freeze half way thru the scan.

Here is a list of the problems I can identify so far:

a) Windows cannot start in safemode

:thumbup2: When starting windows normally it shows a Error message : Cannot load local profile creating Temp profile.
As a result I lose all my settings and preferences.

c) A particularly important file in my MS Flight simulator 2004 game called Air file does not have the normal notepad icon.
It now has a new Air installer icon, whenever i try to open it there is a command line type screen with a message saying:
' The application could not be installed because the Air file is damaged please obtain a new one from the author'.This is on
every air file on every simulator aircraft in the game. Even when i re-install any aircraft the air file is still damaged.

d) LPVideo.dll file i found out is one of the files sitting in my system32 folder. an online search tags it as a malicious file.
I keep getting periodic media broadcast from some unknown website, mostly of entertainment contents. There is no visual
display just audio.

e) There is also a 5 min periodic computer sound like when an application or process starts then the hard drive runs up and all running processes freeze for a few seconds.

I hope this is descriptive enough for some one to please help with this problem. Thank you.

I run a Gateway computer
Windows XP Pro
Version 2002
SP 2
Intel Pentium 4 CPU 1.8Ghz
512mb ram
Two separate 20Ghz hard drives, primary and secondary.
