Your PC Protector popping up on xp sys, able to stop through taskmgr, pops back up later.
Slaved drive to a known-good/known-clean sys with up to date Norton 360, unplugged from net, ran scan, negative.
This AM, reinstalled in sys, booted, winload, YourPCP came right back up. Re-slaved and scanned with up to date Malwarebytes, 2 positives, but sys rebooted itself (!?!?).
Prompted to run chkdsk by icon in systray (trusted), ran from cmd prompt c:\chkdsk /f f:, several times, each finding seeminly different errors. Eventually got 3 concurrent "normal" runs.
Returned to win gui, tried to copy user's profile (or at least MyDocs), failed, 0 bytes, busy/write-protected/full/etc. (other profiles OK, accessible, copy-able)
Currently re-running malwarebytes on user's profile folder only...2 hits thus far...hopefully sys will not reboot or shut down before finishing/reporting/offering resolution.
Fast food, nicotein, and caffeine for lunch; trying to stay "up" if not "hopeful."
As far as I've seen today, only bleepingcomputer is on top of this with me...thank you (all)!
