:thumbsup: :flowers: :trumpet: wow.... I've been able to fix virus infections in the past - but this one is tough.
IT seemingly roots itself deeper with every click I enter.

In safe mode - I can get to Task Manger
I've found a few things in regedit and deleted them
I've also found a couple ANTIVIRUS PRO 2010 folders and deleted them.
But, I'm hesitant to reboot in fear it'll tighten its grip.

Tried downloading malwarebytes from another computer onto a memory stick - renaming it before the download and renaming it again before running it - to no avail
No internet to run hijackthis and post a log
No Windows
No Add & Remove Programs

Please tell me I'm over-thinking and I've missed the simplist stroke of a key to fix this.

Next.....? :inlove:

Hello, We have a spot for your HJT log here .please follow the instructions I Pm'd you. Let me know via PM as I will close this topic now.

Your HJT log

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
