I'm running Windows XP.
About a week ago I got a virus, I believe it was called Antivir Software Pro, that claimed my computer was infected and I needed to give them money to fix it. That virus blocked websites and all other anti-virus programs from being downloaded, installed or used. My friend tried to wipe my computer and re-install Windows, but the virus stopped that as well. It wouldn't let me re-install windows claiming it couldn't find a harddrive.
We finally got Malwarebytes to run in safe mode and and then Spybot. It helped some, I can reach websites now. However it's gradually getting worse again. I get re-directed to other sites, some sites are becoming blocked again and I can no longer run any anti-virus software.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am not very good with this stuff, but I can get a hijack this log if that helps. I would mainly just like to wipe and start fresh.
