My computer was PERFECT then it found a VIRUS
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.
whats next?

You have a HJT log posted. you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
