I was using "nod 32" anti virus software until recently when the trial version expierd. just shortly after, the computer started to act strange and i immedietly susspected it got infected with a virus, i tried to download an anti-virus software but was unable to access any anti virus web page, i was only able to download "malewarebytes" through www.downloads.com with "getright". but it was impossible to update it, just to scan. i tried to use combo fix but it keeps saying that the combo fix file was infected also, probably by a virut file, the messege appeared even after renaming the file to "combo-fix".

thanks in advance,


p.s. incase it's all doomed, as i suspect, will it be usefull to format my hard drive and reinstall vista from "vista recovery partition", or the virus can infect the secret partition as well?

You probably do have Virut but it would be better to see a MBAM log to confirm



No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Hello again,

- let us not forget it's not the updated version! so probably there are more, i removed the viruses and yet everything stayed the same.

i would appreciate if someone can offer another action and also advice regarding my question about formating the HD and using vista partition for reinstalling which i mentioned on my first post
