BUMP PLEA: => PLEASE ADVISE ANY HOPE - ANY INSIGHT ON LOGS - NEXT STEP SUGGESTIONS - ANYTHING

4/21 02:230 UCT (4/20 10:023pm EDT) I posted below. Would have expected at least one reply in nigh on to 23 hours. Did I break or am I breaking some norms by bumping? perhaps my expectations were off. Sorry, but have now taken work off to re-format, re-install OS/Apps, and retrieve backed-up data. Would be keen to avoid that. regards, much indebted to anyone who can give me a clue from below

-------
We have a unknown malware, when my wife called from home, it sounded like antivirus hijack/ransome variant.
"Shut it down," I said. When restarted it, I saw AV warnings, and executables were blocked.
So, I booted XP into Safe mode, logged into Administrator session, and ran Malwarebytes. It reported several exploits. Which it removed. Now MBAM reports no issues. Unfortunately, I overwrote the MBAM text log file from that session. I I suspect the exploit had sabotaged MBAM, anyway. When I logged out as Admin and back into infected username session, even in Safe mode, executables are still blocked. even Process Explorer. When logged in normal Windows session, am not sure but I think the random pop-ups haver stopped, But executables are still blocked. Explorer, IE, msconfig, even GMER all not executable.

I tried running GMER in safe mode as Admin -- got BSOD memory dump error. SHOULD I TRY AGAIN?

Here is the DDS txt from the normal Windows session for the infected user login.

thanks in advance for help

Frank

Please include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Please refrain from running tools or applying updates other than those we suggest while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.
