Hello, I am hoping you can help me. I have a Compaq laptop with Vista Home 32 bit running on it. Within the past week I have received 2 viruses, Windows Restore and Vista Manager. I have followed all the directions on your site and have run the following programs: Malware, Spybot Search & Destroy, Super Anti Spyware, CC Cleaner, and Ad Aware. Here are my issues now after all of the cleaning:

When I try to run Combofix I get a popup that my disk has errors and to run chkdsk. I have done a quick scan through the DOS promp and there are corrupt files so it doesnt finish completely. I have also tried to force it to fun upon reboot into Safe Mode but it does not scan, just boots up to safe mode. I have gone into disk properties and checked the boxes to run chkdsk upon reboot and then gone into the msconfig boot area and checked the box for Safeboot which has worked in the past but this time nothing, just boots into safe mode.

I have never had problems with chkdsk before and run it faithfully to keep my computer functioning. Any ideas? I would love to fix all the errors through chkdsk.

Maybe is it smart if you run an online scan.
Sometimes find an online Virus scan more than the standard Virus scan.
Also think I that it is smart when you have done, that you make a DDS log in the sub forum Am I infected.?
Tip: It is not really smart when you run a Hijackthis tool without experiences.

Still cant run chkdsk. When I run a scan I get a popup that a file within the anti spyware software is corrupt and I should run the chkdsk utility.

Any ideas?
