Hi All....
I've been an avid visitor to bleeping computer for a while although I have never registered until now. I am mediocre at executing and diagnosing the content covered at this website but have now hit a "I don't know sh!!Te" stage and am actually completely helpless with my current POS PC that I need and am stuck with ATM.

I have a Dell Inspiron 700m with a broken monitor (using external) and a broken dvdrom (also using non-bootable external). The viral situation I am in seems to have compromised my ability to access safe mode. I used to be able to b4 then all the sudden one day nada. Because of my broken hardware I am having a very difficult time just reinstalling windows so I have now decided the only way I'm gonna gain ctrl is to eradicate this virus. NONE of the anti-virus programs out there found anything at all ( avg, malwarebytes, pctools, bitdefender, more..) except (ya i know its strange) msn's Security Essentials, of which when I ran it it found 600+ exe infections and counting. It found multiple versions of a Virus called "Sality" and it seems the infections place and displace themselves freely. If you were to watch my processes there are many varieties of self starting processes going and some of them even open "notepad.exe on thier own. they usually look like axtylg.exe etc.. the most common is this strain that always starts with "win" (winxxxxxx.exe x's= consonants random usually) and they are in apdata/temp folder. yes ive erased them time and time again, but they are just replaced by others. I know that I have some source generator of this hidden somewhere on my pc and I just cant find it.

I really don't know where to start except that if someone is gonna help me with a walkthrough that I will just count on the tools you use, and with that said I will include a hijackthis log at the end here... Another detail(s)/symptom(s) that might be valuable is that (and I've seen this b4 on my partners pc) It doesnt let me visit certain security sites. It corrupts exe's so that I usually cant run them a 2nd time. The last time I installed CCleaner I was able to use that software for like 3 min then it just shutdown, and now it doesnt even open (some other softwares do this too). Also it has completely disabled my firewall. Whether I have it on w/ no execption or off there is no difference in anything no pop-ups nothing, and when I look over the exception list there is the "ipsec" entry repeatedly addedto the list of which i didnt do and even after i delete the entry.

Well I hope thats some good info for a foundation to get started.
I cant tell you how much id appreciate authentic effective help here...
I'm gonna post 2 logs to show the processes change since I typed this post...

later edit: i added a third because I cleaned up the previous hijack this.
the viruses havent showed up since then. idk if this is just a coincidence or that they will self-install later.
"pnkbstr" is for a trusted game.
the only question i have is that "dw" entry. whats that?
