I am running XP Pro SP3 on a Dell Precision M20 laptop. I was "between" anti-virus programs when I foolishly ran an untrustworthy video conversion program and it blasted me with something. I can't get Malwarebytes to finish an install without crashing. Have tried changing the installer name multiple times, and even re-downloading and running it from a USB stick doesn't work. Every time i click anywhere on the taskbar i hear an error sound and the click doesn't register. I'm typing this from my gf's vista machine.

I booted up an avira rescue cd which registered about 80 alerts but wouldn't let me go in and delete or quarantine anything (there were no "suspicious files" found, although most of the "alerts" were called trojans in the log.

An Avast scan on startup came up with four files infected with "Win32:Junkpoly [cryp]" but would not repair them. I deleted these:

and this one would not delete:

Spybot will install and some processes will run but the application won't open.

The bug also won't let any other anti-virus or anti-malware apps to connect to their servers to update. Browser (firefox) works normally except when trying to connect to most antivirus sites (symantec, malwarebytes, avg, avast, spybot.. all redirect to google.com). When internet is connected i get popups, as well as fake "alerts" telling me to install something called "Protection Service." The text on the alert balloons has really bad grammar so it's obvious these are fake and part of whatever malware is running. I also am having shortcuts to porno sites appear on the desktop.

I suspect the file NOTEBOOK.exe in the system32 folder has something to do with it, and a few of the scans have returned lsass.exe as a Trojan. I've been poking around for awhile and don't have any clue what i'm doing here...
