Sorry if I am missing something obvious here. My dad's laptop currently has a virus. It has been on the laptop for several weeks now. I originally downloaded (on a usb on a different laptop) rkill and mbam and used both on his laptop. This temporarily halted the virus, but it now seems worse than before. It will not let any applications run.
I have tried using a usb with several downloaded antivirus files as there is no internet access on the laptop, but it claims the usb is infected and will not allow me to use the applications on it.
Some traits of the virus:
-Occasionally restarts the computer.
-Sets its own homescreen background.
-Runs "System tool" scan.
These are different to the original symptoms, so it may be a new virus.
Does anyone have any ideas? Any help will be very appreciated =]
