Ok so this started a week or 2 ago, i was at a website and caught some nasty viruses c.exe, h.exe, TDSS, windows antivirus pro, and many many more, it even blocked my use of malwarebytes/combofix, then i found out i had to change their names inn order to be able to use them, but i did this too late and many of my important files got deleted or replaced with viruses, even after i fixed some of the problems, my pc starts spiking and making very loud noises when i play big games, like at times it would be at 90% cpu and other times to 100%, 2% to 20% back and fourth, i also get many other errors when i play games with wmiprvse.exe and that had never happen to me EVER until i caught so many viruses, and now i even have processes running that i've never seen before.

But my main problem right now is when i try to open a .exe file i would get this pop up whenever i left click on it:

Thank you for everyones help.

PS:If i want to delete everything on my pc, do i need to have the windows xp cd in order to do so, i lost mine, but i still got my code sticker on top of my pc.

Place Windows XP CD in your CD drive. This should be same service pack as you have installed on your system.
Now open Start Menu > Run and type : SFC /SCANNOW and press Enter.
This would check all the installed files on your system and if they are corrupted would replace them.

If you do not have CD, there is a possibility that you have an i386 folder on your hard disk somewhere. You can run sfc /scannow from this. For more details, read this article : http://www.updatexp.com/scannow-sfc.html

Since this article involves registry modification, you should backup your registry first using ERUNT : http://www.larshederer.homepage.t-online.de/erunt/

I cannot really tell what processes are running on your system. If you feel suspicious then post a new topic in Am I Infected? section.

You have a DDS / HJT log posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.


To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
