Earlier tonight, we got infected with the Windows Antivirus Pro virus. It seems to be a particularly nasty version. I've already looked through some of the previous posts as well as the guide for help but have not been able to get anything to work. I cannot run any of my antivirus software, including MBAM. Unfortunately, I cannot get my windows task manager to even open up in the first place. Every time I try, it gives me this message: "Application cannot be executed. The file is infected. Please activate your antivirus software." I tried changing the group policy settings but didn't make a difference.
I get the same message when I try to run Regedit.
I have tried using Killbox but it did not work.
I've tried using "fixtm" and "enableTM" but also no help.
I cannot use system restore, and I cannot even boot in safe mode. I get some weird blue screens during boot up saying that the computer is infected and should be restarted.
Right now I am considering running GMER...which I realize is for a different forum. However, I wanted to see if there are any other suggestions before I do that. Or is it even worth it?
Thanks in advance,
