I've used this site a few times before but now I really need help. My computer somehow got infested with a whole ton of viruses which couldn't be removed until I renamed Malwarebytes and removed the majority of them. Now there's only one trojan left, but it's causing the majority of the problems. I can only run Vista in safe mode now since it repeatedly crashes when I try to run in normal mode. It blocks most virus removal software like McAfee, Windows Defender, and Malwarebytes. Everytime I use Internet Explorer popups appear and it tries to get me to install a "virus removal tool" or something.

The problem with this trojan is unlike the rest of the viruses this one needs to be removed when I restart the computer, but the computer crashes every time I try. The trojan is in C:\Windows\System32\ESQULzcounter. Any ideas?
