I'm at my wits end here. I'm infected with at least Virtuomonde and Smitfraud. Here is what's happening.
All antivirus and HJT that I've tried (spybot, HJT, Avast, etc) start to run and then die. When I try to restart I get a dialog box that says, cannot access, file, drive, path--you may have insufficient rights.
clicking on browser links redirects to a random page.
booting in safe mode gives me a quick BSD and then starts over
Active desktop has died--I deleted an html "warning" image from the recovery console on a Win XP CD.
Can ANYBODY help or am I doomed to reformatting?
Currently running Win XP Home Edition--SP-3
Thanks so much!
