Ok. So i got the defense center virus recently and was able to easily remove it with MBAM. however, after removal, my computer would get symptoms of virus )google search results redirecting, random internet windows popping up) then defense center would just come right back after a few days of that. And it seems that it gets harder to remove it with each and every attack,for example the most recent defense center attack was really hard to remove (and it seems that they get harder everytime an attack happens again.) When i tried to run mbam and superantispyware in safemode for example, it gave me an error ( i forgot what it said) and it also prevented me from going to malwarebytes.org or superantispyware's website (but i was able to visit the sites on an uninfected computer, so i know its not because their servers are down)so i had to reinstall from cnet. It also prevented malwarebytes from updating after i downloaded it. I finally removed it by reinstalling Superantispyware and miracously it passed thru a loophole and was able to remove it. But now the same pattern (as i had described before) of random websites coming up is back again, and i fear in the next few days defense center is gonna come back and this time prevent superantispyware from deleting it. Please save me from this repeated attacks its really killing my comps performance and is really killing me. Any help would be appreciated thanks!
Fellow moderator Orange Blossom had told me to post logs and follow some steps, which i did. I couldnt get a gmer log as everytime i ran that thing my computer got the blue screen of death and crashes. However, while GMER was running, i did see some rootkid host intrusion things or whatever and it detected alot of stuff. But then the comp crashes.Anyway to prevent GMER crashing? because i believe it has alot of info that could be helpful in my case. However, the dds log is here:
