Spy Doctor reported Virus doctor and a exporer hijacker which it didn't identify
Malwarebytes wouldn't run at first and now runs but locks up before it completes
MS online scan runs but locks up before it completes
spybot reported FunWebProducts - (which it still reports even though it said it had removed it\0
Spybot reports MSwindows securitycentervirusoverride
I just opened SPYbot and it reported that something had modified it and it should be reloaded as it doesn't modify itself.
Avast reports no errors but is running ok
I ran combofix and I can give you the log file if you like. It crashed reporting that there was an error with one of the programs but seemed to complete when I aborted this program (sorry I did not note down the program)
THe system regularly seems to need to run CHKDSK at startup.
I ran hijackthis but did not act on any of the information as I couldn't determine what was good and waht was bad.
I ran sweeper but did not act on the data as I wasn't clear what it mean't
I have also run CCleaner several time to clean up the mess in the registry.
Unfortunately it may be a case of a little knowlege being a dangerous thing, I probably should have found a site like this to start with and just asked for help.
I found some notes I took and one of the checkers reported the following files (I think it was PCtools)
I remove the first two and replace the last one from the one in the directory c:\i386
I also note that one of the viruses that was reported was multipassrecover (although I don't know what tool reported it)
I also have a note reading catchme.dll
Again unfortunately I did not record what tool flagged these files.
Clearly I should have taken better notes :-(
Tried reinstalling windows again to capture problem.
Windows gets to the point of asking what drive to install on but no active partitions are listed, when I used the up arro key (to see if the list scrolled and there were active partitions I couldn't see) it crashed with a blues screen.
Windows has detected a problem and sut down etc.
it also suggested there may not be enough disk space
or that I needed BIOS updates
the STOP numbers were
STOP: 0x0000008E(0x00000005, 0x8071A799,0xF73BA778,0x00000000)
