ok so here is the Story This virus is not on my computer it is on a friends computer. The reason he isn't posting here is because the Virus blocks almost every Antivirus helpsite, you name it he can't get to it. That's not all the Virus has disabled his System restore, and the Factory restore, So finding this thing is about the only way he can even begin to fix anything. This virus seems to also block Avast in that it shuts it off as soon as is starts to run.

he is running Win XP on a netbook.

I still don't know what the virus is he is dealing with and can't seem to find anyone having the same problem, its almost like this is a viurs and then someone combined it with others to make one heck of a virus.

any help on this would be awesome I'll post his System info once i can get it from him
Thanks in advance for all your help guys

You are fairly limited with this but you can download stuff for him and use it off a usb stick try Norman malware Malwarebytes download them and put them on a usb stick but rename them as the virus often looks for the name and stops it running. Copy the files to his hd and try running them in safe mode
