a couple of days ago i had a virus pop up, i tried to fix it but it didnt work.
here is what i have done and problems i have ran into.
i tried to repair my windows instillation== i ran the upgrade tool with windows xp pro, i recieved an error message "fake setup called himself instead..."
i looked into the error message and the methods that were giving to fix it did not help, i contemplated buying windows 7, but instead i created a
new instillation of windows xp on my machine. this worked, but i still had the virus on the other windows instillation. so i ccleaner, and avg, and
antispyware, and mbam and combofix, i ran them on the new version of windows. they did search the other partition. i got booted into the old
version of windows and proceeded to run mbam and the other programs mentioned. however it wouldnt let me run combofix, it said that it was
i then recieved an error about "security tool" so i *stupidly* ran the version of mbam i had on that version of windows, when i rebooted it was still there but
the mdm was not. i looked up how to remove it from this website. here is the exact link http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-remo...e-security-tool
i installed the mbam replaced the file and started running the tool, i could
not update the tool because it wouldnt let me? i am unsure why it said there was an error connecting with the server. i ran the tool anyway, went
to a movie when i came back my screen was black as to be expected i was gone for maybe 4 hours, but it would not turn back on. i moved my
my mouse and clicked it, i could hear a noise out of my speekers so i tried to get the monitor on but it would not come on. so i powered down my
computer and on reboot the motherboard screen came on but no other screen past that, and i can not get any screen past the motherboard
screen to work.
so that is where i am, i can not see any boot up into anything, i have tried to boot into safe mode. but it does not work, i even tried to boot into my av boot disk i made but i can not do that either. ??? any suggestions
at some point as well i created an av boot disk, however it would run and update but it only showed me potential problems no viruses and it wouldnt delete anything??
