*this is a 'repost' of my issue as another moderator told me to post another topic in this section along with the dds logs ;*

Referred here from: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/216376/win32sality-virus-moved/ ~ OB


I think I've got the Win32:Sality virus and it is causing my desktop PC issues:
x Can't re/install antivirus programs eg avast home edition
x Can't boot in any sort of 'Safemode' or revert back to last known config settings
x Hidden files immediately become 'hidden' again after applying the 'show hidden files and folders' option
x Virus has attached itself onto USBs and my PC will not allow them to be formatted

+ i can still access task manager , regedit [thought I would include it in here since other users have said that they couldn't access it]
+ most programs still run fine [though I'm not sure whether it's because I formatted my desktop a little while ago]

Sality is spreading over my home internet cable network so one other computer is infected as well as mine , thought at varying degree .. [if that's possible] .

I've tried the various sality virus removal tools available on the net, however none of them were effective in cleaning up my pc, online scanners detected no infected files.... however they might not have been programed to detect sality.

on a side note , i also have a laptop running on windows vista and on the wireless network .. so I was wondering which part of it it was that prevented that computer from being infected .

the DDS log as follows:
