I've tried various different Malware programs and AV programs to remove all sorts of different viruses and malware but I still think there is a problem with this machine as I cannot install new AV programs, I cannot update windows updates, etc.
Firstly I had this s_reader virus that I read up and and found out top be pretty messy. I deleted the file with Windows Defender.
I could not run a scan with AVG, I could not install any .exe's or anything.
I went to restart and install windows updates but it froze. I tried to turn the machine back on but it could not start windows in any moide and got the odd flash of a blue screen and then restarted.
I used the Vista Cd to repair windows to get it up and running again.
I ran CCleaner and cleaned up some files and over 100 registry values
I Ran IObits Advanced System Care and found nearly 10,000 bits of spyware and cleaned everything up.
I ran Anti-Malwarebytes and got more trojans, backdoors, worms, adware, etc and cleaned them up
I ran Spybot and got nothing.
I ran windows/microsoft malicious software tool and got nothing.
I ran Spyware Doctor and got a Trojan and adware and cleaned them.
I ran SUPERantispyware and got 2 trojans, adware and regur personal antivirus.
I cannot install:
Windows Media Player Plugin
and one or two more as there are errors when creating a temporary file that these programs need to install. I'm not sure if I can install anything right now again.
I cannot install any windows updates whatsoever now although I think I did manage to update to Windows Vista SP2.
Can some please tell me whats going on?
