I have a computer (Dell Dimension E520) that is running Vista and upon booting makes it to the scrolling bars. They go across once and then start their 2nd pass and the machine reboots.....
and the cycle continues. The machine does the exact same thing when I try to go into 'safe mode.' Therefore I cant perform a A/V scan from within Windows, but I can boot off of a Knoppix v5.3.1
Live CD with no problems. While running Knoppix, I can update the ClamAV that is on the LiveCD and do a scan of the hard drive. It finds Troj.KillCMOS in the c:\hiberfil.sys and the c:\pagefile.sys.
It is unable to disinfect the files or delete them.
There is no way that I am aware of that i can post a HJT or other needed logs.
What is the best way to clean up this system?
