This prompted me to install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware on Monday. Following installation my computer stalled during rebooting and then started to consistently reboot without opening Windows. There was a fatal system error c000021a and I finally was able to copy the necessary system32 files from the i386 folder from my windows cd. The computer then booted up into Windows however there were no shortcuts on my desktop, no taskbar and no start menu. I downloaded microTrend's housecall and ran it and it picked up nothing.
Next, I was able to start the Avira virus scan through task manager and it found a number of things which I have included the most recent below:
most recent scan --> contained a virus/malware or unwanted program 'BDS/Shiz.aqc.1' [backdoor]
During an earlier scan this afternoon --> contained a virus or unwanted program 'TR/Obfuscate.EK' [trojan]
During an earlier scan this afternoon -->contained a virus or unwanted program 'BDS/Spammy.LM' [backdoor]
This file was moved to quarantine within Avira. Earlier attempts to remove this file were unsuccessful by Avira and had said that it was attempting to perform action using ARK Library?
I have not rebooted by computer and am a little hesitant to do so at the moment. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
