Hello, just recently i got a bunch of viruses/malware/adware/spyware. At first i problems with the start nvatabus.sys, it would not let me boot up my pc. So i corrected the problem by copying a new "navatabus.sys" into the correct directory by using the xp install cd. This allowed me to boot up my oc, but know i am having other issues, such as being slow, limited access to sites on the internet, and ect. I have tried running several programs. I have used ccleaner, vundofix, truesword, and trojan remover successfully. Other programs i have tried to use are prevxcsi and spyware doctor, but both were useless because i could not access the database needed to update/run the program. I have tried running combofix, but the program comes up with a warning saying "Cannot run, not safe". The last program i tried using "superantispyware" would run the scan but come up with the blue screen of death. I have removed several infected files but, i know there is more. The main file reader_s.exe keeps coming up in scans and doesn't seem to be ever completely removed. I have run checks in both safemode and regular mode but, i cant seem to get rid of the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
*** First problem i noticed were porn icons that randomly appeared on my desktop***
