but now there is something more, and some sort of edit to the registry. whenever I attempt to run combofix, about 6 or 7 iexplorer.exes open in the tskmngr....the tskmng crashes and so does combo-fix. Now, no anti-virus software can be accessed. all i receive is 'File does not exist' or 'access denied'......
Being somewhat knowledgeable around computers I went to work manually tracking everything down. I removed all fake programs except for a fake svchost which is hiding out somewhere....and whenever I do get it deleted, its replaced on reboot.
I believe i have the recycle virus...but may be wrong.
I plugged in a harddrive to the computer, and inside a new autorun.cfg file appeared. upon opening the file is listed a new reg key and exe to Recycler/48367228646372829182asd67372.exe
i removed that, and have ensured that the drive is clean and also removed the registry entry that did not allow me to open the drive (When double clicking on the drive it attempt to open that exe instead of the drive)
Also note that avira antivir had to be removed because explorer.exe is apparently a virus, and with it, i can only see my desktop in safe mode.
Anyways. i am hoping you can help me out.
