I must have a really nasty malware problem. I first had troubles when I couldn't obtain an ip adress - either wired or wireless. I tried some ipconfig business and winsock in cmd prompt u nothing worked. I have repeatedly tested with MalwareBytes, SuperAntiSpyware and Avast AntiVirus - all coming up empty.
Today I got frustratd with the lack of conectivity and tried to go into Safe Mode to see if I could root out the problem. I was not allowed in - I kept getting blue screen's of death. I now can get into safe mode but I can't use any system restore points and there are numerous other problems that suggest some sort of interference.
First off, there are strange error msgs I get when I boot up. One has some thig to do with an Installsield and an exe at a really long and convoluted adress for a directory. Then I get a msg about eRecovery failing which is built in to my Acer laptop. Then I start getting registry change notifications from spybot that don't reflect anything happening in the compuer....There's defintiely something up and I 've run a battery of tests. Hopefully they mak sense to somebody...
My computer is an Acer Laptop - Travelmate 8200. Intel Centrino Duo, 2 g ram, 120 g hd partitioned in two
I have tried ome of the preliminary steps, rimarily, cleaning on forums like majorgeeks and help2go. This includes, cccleaner, antivirus scan with Avast, Malware and SuperAntispyware as well as Spybot. I have logs for everything. I have a HijackThis log. Everything comes up empty.
I am at a loss as to how to proceed.
