I have been working with quietman7 on a more general malware forum and he has sent me to to this one for more in depth help.
I have something on my computer that will not let AVG update (stating that access is forbidden) and will not let me run my registry editor. These are the only two for sure problems I have encountered so far. I have another program called Steam that stopped working at the same time as the AVG updater and regeditor, but I am unsure if it is related.
Quietman7 had me download ATF Cleaner and run that. He then had me download and run Dr. Web CureIt in safe mode and also malwarebytes anti-malware as well.
Dr. Web CureIt did find four trojans and it deleted them but nothing else was found by either scanner. I am still encountering my problems.
He told me to run a DDS Scan before posting. I downloaded it and have tried running it numerous times. It comes up with the message in black box but does nothing else. The underscore is blinking and it says it is responding, though I waited over 20 minutes and nothing happened. When I go to quit, it says it is still running. I have no idea if I have script blocking programs on and wouldn't really know if I did. Assisstance would be greatly appreciated!
