Here is the link to my original post. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic371162.html/page__p__2079308__fromsearch__1#entry2079308

Since my original post, I have done the following scans:

Spybot - 1 tracking cookie found & removed

AFT Cleaner

MBAM - full scan - found & removed 2 rootkit droppers, 3 trojans and 2 pum. Log created and saved.

SAS - full scan - found & removed 3 trojans (Hugipon & Agent/Gen)), 1 rogue (Pallidium) and a 170 tracking cookies

ESET - found and removed "a variant of win32/trojan downloader"

RKILL - no processes killed

Reran MBAM after RKILL - clean

I still cannot run Real Time, obtain updates or scan using McAfee.

I cannot turn off the computer normally--it requires a "hard" shut off.

I cannot get into "Control Panel" or "Task Manager" or "My Computer"

When starting up the computer, after the splash screen, I get something like Primary drive 1 and secondary drive 1 not found, hit F1 to continue.

I cannot start up in Safe mode.

Thanks so much for any help!!
