Would hugely appreciate help with this!!

Infection on my XP Pro SP3 machine is blocking .exe files -- they simply dim when double-clicked. When I double-click another .exe, it dims and the previous one undims.

I cannot boot to safe mode because the malware causes a huge delay following POST, and by the time I get control back it is too late for F8.

I cannot launch Chrome but for whatever reason, I can use IE no problem, surfing to any site I want.

I ran as much as I could from the list of requested apps, but could not unzip GMER since expander is an .exe file. Here is the DDS file:

No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review your topic an do their best to resolve your issues.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
