SCVHOST crashed, my internet went down. 2 files got added to the startup, i removed them then reboot.
on reboot, computer freezes at login screen. i tried 3 times, it locked up during login (after put password).
I boot into safe mode w/ command prompt, get to desktop, system restore back to april 25.
after the restore, it no longer freezes at login. I get a desktop, i update and scan with malwarebytes, find nothing.
I try mcafee.com, no connection. i try spybot, kapersky, all blocked. then, the computer locks up, cold stone frozen. my computer NEVER locks up. EVER. not once since the day i bought it. I hard reboot back to windows and try spybot, it updates fine, but the new download is corrupted. so spybot is impossible to update. malwarebytes no longer updates either anymore. I try RESTORE again but ALL of my restore points are GONE now!
I decide to do a system recovery. I reboot, F11 to start system recovery. Loading.... BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH. some reference to shell32.dll, it looks like the virus re-directed the location for the image. mother bleeper. ok, i pull out my factory never-used before restore cd and boot from the cd. it asks me press R for recovery, i press R and it tells me a factory image was found on the computer, so it trys to load the image again and BLUE SCREENS again, it wont use the CD restore because it thinks the hard-drive restore is still working.
Im at the point where I am willing to delete the hard drive partition where the factory recovery is located (recovery partition D:) so the CD-ROM has no choice and must boot and recovery from CD which I have them all...
But Im not sure that will work.
