Yesterday i downloaded pctools spyware doctor starter edition with google pack and pctools antivirus but suddenly an error occured after rebooting , my pc don't startup so i restore it to last known good configuration but everything seems not ok...Slow startup, minimal running services, can't get my network adapter acquire connection and can't uninstall google update...I'm planning to do also a complete reformat...

my network seems acquiring for connection forever but can't connect ...it cycles and cycles but not blinking
my program works well but it take century before going to desktop...i can't uninstall google pack...I'm now running spyware doctor

all my drivers like sound keep on uninstalling ...i can't open my windows firewall saying some associated service not running...i tried to uninstall the drivers and after restarting it worked but after restarting again back to my problem again...My network connection uninstalled Qos packet scheduler i don't know why it is missing...What i remember is that the moment i am downloading google pack, i got disconnected...then my pc hang up...i can't cancel the installation (the google earth ) i had installed google desktop,photoscreensaver (but blocked by threatfire). I also downloaded and installed pctools antivirus and updated it but i think this is the root of the problem, it started to hang up and disconnected...Then after restarting, no sounds, the network icon keeps on cycling and says acquiring for network but never been connected ... I tried to uninstall google pack but i received an error...My big problem is I can't get my cdrom to work because I'm planning to reformat now since I don't have any documents to back up(bec. I already did it before)...My pc is running faster now because I don't have any installed programs and antivirus..It uses only 145 Mb but the startup is slow and no sounds...I already manually updated sp3 but can't fix it...

i don't have 2 antivirus i'm trying them one by one which one will catch more bec. i'm suspecting my pc to be infected...it's been 2 years since i last reformatted my pc coz my cdrom broke...i uninstalled them...i try to fix it by combofix because i have no choice coz i can't install any program and can't run firewall even windows firewall and other security program but combofix fixed my problem...but now after 2 days i have my problem back.. i already installed superantispyware, avira, malwarebytes and comodo...then they catched over 60 infections....superantispyware catched trojan hugipon and unknown trojan...i can't remember what malwarebytes catched i will rescan again...avira catched adspy spatch... my wallpaper constantly changing to something black
like before...i don't know why i got this i had just had received update for my windows...

maybe i have infected files that triggered the infection to run again because i backed them up copied to newly formatted usb...i remember having infected by winlog.exe,,,,explorer.exe(infected), virut / sality virus and other generic trojan clicker..i disabled all autoruns but maybe triggered to run the infection again after accessing the backup files or while copying it

i tried sfc /scannow and some xp files are missing and needs cd....i don't have cdrom in my pc #1...I'm also suspecting my pc #2 to contain my infected files transferred from pc #1

does it mean that my other computer may be infected also coz i transferred my files into it...should i separately post the scan for the 2 machines? or a clean reformat will do?

how if all my gazillion files are infected how can i save them? Is it possible for a picture, doc, avi's or movies, pdf, html,etc...to be infected and cannot be seen in any other scanner because previously i have consulted here in bc and one guy said that there's no other solution in removing sality other than reformatting and don't backup exe's and html's...but i'm worried about my ebooks and documents...

before using combofix my clock constantly change and my wallpaper disappears i can't connect to internet and can't update or maybe receive fake updates because it's weird that malwarebytes don't catch anything including superantispyware...but after running combofix i reinstalled them again and run normally.It' also weird that my browser has not been hijacked coz i got to this site...

sorry for long post...need help pls!
