Recently, I was infected with both APManager and AKM AntiVirus software viruses. At one point, I could not even normally boot my computer. After many frustrating attempts, I was able to boot in safe mode and access the task manager. I ran a full Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware scan on my computer and seemed to have successfully removed AKM Antivirus. I have also searched through my computer and deleted any items relating to AKM Antivirus. However, APmanager was not removed by Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. I attempted to run several more MBAM scans, but they result in zero infected files.
Now, everytime I boot my computer, a fraud copyright alert is the only object that shows up on my home screen. The item reads: "Copyright Violation: Copyrighted Content Detected". Looks like this: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-remo...violation-alert There is no background or bottom taskbar. I am able to run task manager and end the apmanager.exe process. I cannot run the registry editor. When I attempt to run regedit for the first time, nothing happens. Everytime after that, an error message reads "Another program is currently using this file". When i run DDS, no notepad windows show up as they should. GMER log created successfully.

Hi,
  • Download OTL to your desktop.
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • When the window appears, underneath Output at the top change it to Minimal Output.
  • Copy-paste following contents into custom scan -area:
    netsvcs
    %SYSTEMDRIVE%\*.*
    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
    CREATERESTOREPOINT
    %systemroot%\system32\*.dll /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\Tasks\*.job /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\System32\config\*.sav
    %systemroot%\system32\drivers\*.sys /90
  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
    • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
    • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and post it with your next reply. You may need two posts to fit them all in.
