I would recommend you at least get an MRT member to look at some scans in your topic here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/325286/virus-explorerexe-process-cant-run-when-i-log-in-only-shows-background-picture/ before you do anything hasty.
I'd say you jumped the gun on declaring the problem resolved. I recommend you go back to AII. If you want, I can ask for help specifically for you in case your topic has fallen out of the loop.
Let me know what you want to do...
Yeah, I definitely jumped the gun, I still have this damn thing, but the worst part of it is gone, the attacking part. This rootkit i tell you... its damn impossible to get rid of. I tried Malwarebytes to get rid of it, Spybot S&D, SUPERAntiSpyware, Spyware Doctor (or something), BitDefender, ComboFix( yeah i know i used it without permission, but it saved my computer when the worst of the virus was attacking), and UnHackMe. I thought UnHackMe would get rid of it for sure, its a pretty good program, but it failed to do so. I also ran HiJackThis and removed all the bad programs and stuff from the list. I even did some manual stuff to try and get rid of it. Also scanned in safe mode, also did a system restore, nothing helps. I honestly think there's no way to get rid of this virus that doesn't include reformatting. Hell, I bet even if i reformatted i would still have it...this things a beast...I've decided to just ignore the rootkit until I have time to reformat or maybe somehow find a way to get rid of it since it's really not doing any harm at the moment. Except when I'm playing Crysis, I hear a windows pop up message sound in the background, but when i minimize, there's nothing there. Also today there was this eerie music playing and 2 people saying stuff, a ladys voice and a very low voice, and once again, I minimized, and there were absolutely no programs or anything running, so it was definitely the virus playing it. I dunno what the voices were saying, but it was kinda creepy O_o.
