Hi everyone, thanks in advance for any help. I am typing on my un-infected laptop. My computer is infected, desktop screen is changed and I cant open a thing in regular boot mode. Immediately the fake scanner pops up which leads into other pop ups. The desktop is changed to the big scary warning you are in danger message. Again I cant open a single thing, I spent like 6-7 hours trying to get this removed but no luck, in regular mode I have tried renaming files for mbam and super anti, tried renaming from exe to bat, com and others with no luck. Hijack wont open so I cant make a log. I booted into safe mode many times and tried full and quick scans with malwarebytes, super anti. It finds stuff and deletes but on reboot every time it's back instantly. I tried that smitfraudfix which also worked at first but within literally a few seconds the desktop had changed and the scanner was running. This is so so so frustrating and I dont know what else to do, in safe mode I cant get any internet connection. I tried safe mode with networking but couldnt get online either. So yeah as of right now my computer is completely inoperable right now, this is some nasty infection as I have never had this much trouble trying to get rid of something like this.

Running windows XP, still cant use my computer at all, anyone got any ideas or help for me. I can put files on a disc and transfer them to the infected computer in safe mode if need be. Please please please help me, I'm at the point where I feel like I may need to get a new tower or something.

why won't my laptop work?

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits
