I'm ok with computers, but still an amateur. So all you pros, please excuse my ignorance. Anyway, I've been struggling for months now, to remove a virus that has hijacked the browser, won't allow safe mode, and won't allow me to run any malware removal software. I tried to find and stop the process in task manager, tried using rkill.exe (which I copied to a flash drive) and neither of those methods proved successful. I even renamed rkill and my malware removal software, in an effort to fool the virus. I copied Super antispyware to a flash drive and ran it, it detected a Rogue in the registry. It quarantines the virus and prompts a reboot for complete deletion. Before it can finish rebooting, a black screen with the words "No bootable partition in table" pops up. I then have to hit the power switch on and off to leave that screen. When I used rkill, it tells me rkill itself is the process that was stopped. I read this could be the virus protecting itself, and in some cases it's process is actually stopped. So I run tdss and it detects a rootkit. I go to remove it to get the same result: "No bootable partition in table". I try once more to run rkill, tdss, and super antispyware (in that order). This time, neither tdss or super antispyware detects anything!!! Did this virus realize it was trying to be removed and learned how to dodge the software!!!??? I don't know what else to do! Knowledgeable people, please be so kind to take time to share your wisdom! Thanks so much.
