I was recently infected with the Antimalware Doctor virus. I attempted to remove the virus manually and was successful in the following steps:

From the Registry Editor I was able to locate and delete these values:

* HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Antimalware Doctor Inc\Antimalware Doctor
* HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Antimalware Doctor

I was unable to locate or delete this value:

* HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run Antimalware Doctor.exe

I was also unable to locate these files during a file search:

* enemies-names.txt
* Antimalware Doctor.exe

I downloaded and installed STOPzilla, I ran a scan of my computer with this software, and when prompted to, I rebooted my computer. The only problem is that my computer fails to reboot at all now. I've tried to reboot it in Safe Mode, in Safe Mode with Networking, et al, but the only thing that happens is the BOOT/BIOS startup window opens, then the Windows XP startup menu opens and then the computer just shuts down....

Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated.
