This one has stumped me.
I've tried malwarebytes, hijackthis, combofix, superantispyware, trojanremover, and spysweeper.
All these programs were disabled by the virus.
malwarebytes installs okay, but after running a quick scan for about 5 seconds it exits, and then the files become corrupt and unmoveable/undeleteable, even after restart.
hijackthis does about half of a scan then exits out.
combofix gets to the point where all the green bars load, then it disappears and nothing else happens.
superantispyware is not allowed to be installed because of restrictions.
(even on the admin account in safemode)
trojanremover found and repaired some things, but now only scans up to 47 percent and then closes
spysweeper won't open but installs okay.
I tried the usual cheap trick of changing the name of the program, but that didn't work.
I've tried all these programs in regular mode and safe mode on multiple accounts, including freshly made accounts, including the administrator account.
There is no evidence of malicious software such as Virus Removal 2009!! (or whatever)
I have also tried disabling startup applications and services in msconfig
Reformatting is not a redily available option.
Oh, and the internet is blocked, of course.
It looks like I have the same problem as this guy http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/248235/hijackthis-and-mbam-disappear-when-scanning/
and I need to be moved as well..... sorry mods!
