As soon as I turn my computer on, before windows can even fully start a picture pops up. It's file name is gee_ru_430435. This is not my picture. I have to close it and then a warning comes up staying that I am infected with a worm and I have to close that in order for windows to start. Then when windows starts, it changes my background image to say "YOUR SYSTEM IS INFECTED! System has been stopped due to a serious malfunction. Spyware activity has been detected. It is recommended to use spyware removal tool to prevent data loss. Do not use the computer before all spyware removed." There is a red cirle with an X next to the time. When I try to run Malwarebytes' Anti Malware, it won't open and tries to search for the file. I tried to rename it and it won't work. I run AVG and it won't find anything useful. Malwarebytes is my favorite program and it won't run!! I ran Hijack This and RootRepeal. I hope that someone can help me. It's driving me crazy!!

Hi egomez,

Welcome to BC HijackThis forum. I am farbar. I am going to assist you with your problem.

Please refrain from making any changes to your system (scanning or running other tools, updating Windows, installing applications, removing files, etc.) from now on as it might interfere with our fixes. Please let me know in your next reply if you agree with this.
  • Please make a restore point.
    • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
    • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next".
    • Give the Restore Point a name then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Reset the LAN settings:
    • Go to Tools => Internet Options => click on the Connections tab, then click on LAN Settings. The following items should be unchecked:
      • Automatically detect settings
      • Use a proxy server for your LAN
    • Click OK.
  • Please download OTL by OldTimer.
    • Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the OTL icon on your desktop.
    • Check the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
    • Check the "Standard Output".
    • Click Run Scan button.
    • Two reports will open, copy and paste just OTL.txt to your reply:

I have not yet been able to try anything that you have said. I just tried to turn on the computer and it won't start normally. As soon as I turn it on, that picture pops up, gee_ru_430435, and when I close it, the screen is just blank. I try to start in safe mode and it just blue screens. I am currently using a different computer. Any suggestions? I will keep trying to start it! This is driving me crazy!! Thank you for all of your help! I really appreciate it.

I am currently using a different computer.

  • Is this one a Windows XP or Vista?

  • Do you have a Windows XP or Vista installation CD. We need to use its recovery options.

  • Do you have a pen drive or a flash drive?

  • We need to make a boot CD.
    • Download Hiren's BootCD Iso to the desktop of the clean computer.
    • Extract the zipped HirensBootCD.zip to your desktop.
    • Open the extracted HirensBootCD folder and extract the zipped HirensBootCD.iso.
    • Double click the BurnToCD.cmd bat file contained in the HirensBootCD folder. This will launch BurnCDCC.
    • Insert a blank CD in your drive.
    • Press Start. This will burn the image to disc.
  • Insert the CD in the CD/DVD-Rom of the problematic computer and and restart.
    • When the computer starts before loading Windows it gives you the option Press any key to boot from CD.... Press a key. If you don't press the key on time it goes on booting Windows and you have to restart to press the key on time.
    • If your PC is not booting from the CD, you need to change the boot order:
    • Restart your PC
    • As soon as you get an image, press the Setup key. This is usually F2, F10, F12 or Del. On some machines the key can also be a different one. It should, however, be stated on the screen which key is the setup key.
    • Once you enter the computer's BIOS, use the arrow keys and tab key to move between elements. Press enter to select an item to change.
    • Navigate to the tab, where you can set the boot order. It should be called Boot or Boot order
    • The tab should now show your current boot order.
    • If the CD-drive is not at the top, please navigate to the CD-Rom drive with the keys arrows. Then move it to the top of the list. The keys for switching boot position are usually + to move up and - to move down. However they can be different, but they should be stated in the help, so that you can find them easily.
    • Once the CD-drive is on top of the boot order, navigate to Exit and select Exit saving changes.
    • Your PC should now boot from your CD.
  • When the CD boots choose "Start MiniWindowsXP". Allow Windows to load. You will see a typical Windows Desktop.
  • You will be able to access your sick drive and save files/folders from here. Let me know when you have gotten this far and I can guide you.

When you performed the steps in the previous post and get to the boot Cd, double-click My Computer icon on the desktop and tell me the drive letter of your flash drive.
