I spent a few hours on it last night. I was in safe mode most of the time, and I didn't seem to be having any big problems then. I ran a Spybot Search & Destroy scan on it while I slept, but when I woke up I found that the scan didn't find any malicious files.
Furthermore, I've been having many start-up problems. When I try to start Windows normally and I get to the screen that I must select my user account and type in my password, there is an error message that says something about (can't remember the file name now, it was a .dll). Eventually I was able to get on safe mode and I was trying to surf the web, but it kept redirecting me to dangerous sites. I deleted a few files that were created at the same time of the virus last night, and that seemed to fix the web-surfing problem.
I also downloaded a Microsoft malicious content scanner and remover. I did quick scan and it found and removed some files. Then I restarted, opened up safe mode again, and ran a full scan, but midway through the full scan, the computer mysteriously shut down. Since then, I haven't been able to start-up the computer at all due to a problem with "winsxs\Manifests" and nothing seems to work.
If any of you have any advice or could help, it would be much appreciated!!!
Also, if you need me to give any more info, don't hesitate to ask!
