I usually update and run several Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware programs to keep the nasties away and take care of any problems right away. But this time...!
I downloaded a keygen (yeah, I know I shouldn't have) and upon opening, I got the Virtumonde virus and others too. I ran Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D, MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware. It got most of the bad guys.
On startup, I was still getting 2 or 3 Alert messages. One saying "Could not locate rizizozu.dll" and another saying "Intellimouse had encountered a problem and will now shut down". Sometimes also, "Ad-Watch had encountered a problem and will now shut down".
I watched a movie last night on Cyberlink PowerDVD. Afterward, I started to run an online Virus scan. Then everything went wrong.
When starting up, I can normally hit the F8 key to go into Safe Mode and run Anti-Malware progrems. This time, as it goes into Safe Mode, I can see the list of drivers and apps that are loading and about halfway through it just quits and begins to restart. I tried several times. Even if the computer restarts normally, it continually restarts itself after doing it's memory check and system hardware check. It's stuck in some kind of loop.
How can I get into Safe Mode? Is there a bootable CD/files to help get in? HELLPPP!!!
Running: Pentium 4 - 2.8 GHz, 2 GB RAM, Windows XP Pro Service Pack 3, 250 GB HDD + 250 GB secondary drive.
