I am in need of some help. I disabled my anti virus but Combofix said it was active anyways. I proceeded with a scan which it went to Stage 56 then started deleting files. Combofix then locked up with no further activity I was forced to force reboot the machine. After rebooting it , it now comes up to a black screen (no error message or anything). I realize its an advanced tool etc. (I use to participate in forums several years ago on another website with helping people clean their machines). I never ran into a problem like this though, apparently the malware is a lot more advanced these days.

I tried Last known good configuration and that did not work
I tried Safe Mode and it hangs while loading the drivers, so that doesn't work either.

I know combofix made backups of the registry and also a system restore point but how do I get the system back to where it was ? This computer was infected with Anti Virus Pro 2010 or a variant that killed every .exe file it encountered. I was able to finally get it off by running DDS and then looking at the logfile which showed me where the files were located I then went into the registry and removed the startup entries and then I was able to install Mbam and run that which removed the rest of that. However the machine was still acting odd even after that with redirects when browsing the internet.

Is their any way to get this computer back to operational at this point ?
