After the reboot, I ran an AVG scan. During the scan it was up to 140+ found infections but before the scan was completed it just closed out without warning. I then tried running Superantispyware and it ran for about 5 seconds and then shut down on its own. Upon trying to restart Superantispyware, it gave me an error, something about not being able to locate a file. In addition, the icon for the Superantispyware executable has been changed and is no longer able to run.
I rebooted into safe mode and reinstalled Superantispyware and attempted to run it. Same result; it again shut down after just a second or two and then started giving me the error again when trying to re-run it.
I also attempted to run Malwarebytes, but received the same response that I did with Superantispyware.
I then decided to access the system restore utility and try rolling back to the prior day, but I was given an error saying, "System restore has been turned off by group policy.To turn on system restore please contact your domain administrator." After researching on my other computer, I was finally able to delete a registry entry and gain access to the system restore, however, it said that I have no restore points. Apparently the infections have deleted all restore points.
Currently, I am able to boot into safe mode without an issue, however, the PC won't boot up regularly outside of safe mode. It goes through the motions of having me log in and then acts as though it's loading everything like a typical startup. The desktop icons and the toolbar appear for a moment, but then disappear. The PC then just shows a blank desktop screen with nothing on it. I'm unable to access anything by right clicking the desktop or even using windows shortcuts. I can, however, access the task manager via ctrl/alt/delete. I am able to boot up in regular mode using a Superantispyware utility called bootsafe (bootsafe.exe). It allows me to boot up with access to all of my drives and programs, gain internet access etc, but still won't allow me to run the previously mentioned utilities that failed.
Also worth mentioning is that I constantly receive tasktray popups warning me that my computer is at risk and to click the balloon popup to resolve the related issues. I am also receiving numerous popups in the middle of the computer screen warning me that my PC is infected. In addition, I get numerous error messages which popup randomly telling me that a specific file was unable to load and could not be found. (Those seem to be different files each time, but are generally files like 475.exe, 23.exe, etc...)
Lastly, I tried running RootRepeal, DDS, and HijackThis in order to post logs with this thread, but all programs shutdown within second of executing them. I've even tried reinstalling all mentioned programs under different names and running them as such, but no luck with that either.
Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you...
