I'll try to condense this saga:
Many months ago got the "Windows" Antivirus 2009 infection. Used Malwarebytes and it seemed to be gone (was using AVG as antivirus at the time).
Pop-ups returned every two weeks or so and were removed by Malwarebytes (each time I thought for good).
Last week it returned with a vengeance as "Windows" Antivirus 2010. I couldn't run Malwarebytes (or most any other exe) even in SafeMode.
Tried many different free malware detector/removers. Then let room-mates have a go of it. Everyone threw something at it and things continued to get worse until now it will boot to desktop but no icons, or task bar. Someone ran ComboFix along the way but it can't restore the eventlog.dll.
I can run limited programs from task manager.
I don't think I can give you guys a log, since I can't get to my desktop to run HJT and MBM won't start.
I would love to get this thing running long enough to salvage some files. This is the nastiest virus I've ever had.
