I did not use antivirus software anymore because i know when and what to open. However, I was just awakening and downloaded something to test wich i was 90% to be a virus but somehow i forgot i had no antivirus and opened it.
Windows froze then i realized the stupid thing i did. That clear now to the facts:
1. Restarted computer but even before windows starts, the background is black with some colorfull symbols and, it doesn't let me use f8 to start safe mode.
2. windows installation cd works but repair tools find nothing.
3. using another computer i cleaned the virus from my disk but still the same. I didn't write the virus name.
4. booting with my disk in another computer WORKS FINE, firtss times some blue screens because the change of drivers of course, it is a diferent machie, but now it works fine. i can scan with antivirus, antispyware and all. Nothing found but cookies and stuff. (nod32, spybot SD, superantispyware, sophos rootkit and avira).
If i conect the HDD back in my computer it still have the problem so i think it's because:
-The virus corrupted some drivers, system or video drivers related with that specific hardware.
-The virus managed to mess my video card
not sure system specifications are necessary but i have windows 7 64 bit and it has a nvidia graphics card.
more tests i could run is to install in another disk the OS and it should work fine but i have not tried that.
Now to say that is too late for the system is not true because it works perfectly on the other machine.
To say it is hardware my video card wont let me display anything else.
I am sure it is virus as tou can see, may be the virus is gone but the thing it changed persists and i don't know how to solve this.
Any ideas would be welcome.
I'll download the same virus again so i can know what it is and maybe there is a discussion on how to solve it.
greetings and thanks.
