I cannot run DDS.scr (DDS.pif hangs), RSIT, RootRepeal, HJT, GMER, Malwarebytes, Spybot, Avast Pro, or SuperAntiSpyware. Not in normal mode, not in safe mode. Nothing. If I am able to run any kind of .exe and it installs, once loaded the program will run for about 5 seconds and is killed. I cannot even delete the desktop links for RootRepeal or HJT.

I was able to run ESET and it produced the log below after an overnight scan.

I was originally getting a 60 second ntuser admin shutdown which I successfully killed with stop -a

System Restore has been completely removed (it is not even located in the Windows Help section) and Windows Firewall is turned off automatically with each re-boot into safe mode. (I manually turn it back on each time.)

ESET log:

C:\Program Files\AdvancedVirusRemover\PAVRM.exe Win32/Adware.AdvancedVirusRemover application cleaned by deleting - quarantined
C:\WINDOWS\system32\braviax.exe a variant of Win32/Kryptik.AFJ trojan cleaned by deleting - quarantined
C:\WINDOWS\system32\critical_warning.html Win32/TrojanDownloader.FakeAlert.ADG trojan cleaned by deleting - quarantined
C:\WINDOWS\system32\tajf83ikdmf.dll Win32/TrojanDownloader.Small.ORV trojan cleaned by deleting (after the next restart) - quarantined

Help please.

Please nuke this post. I backed up what I could and re-formatted the PC. The new Bravia variant is pretty nasty.
