Hi. I was reading an article on a website when suddenly my computer restarted by itself. When it got to the part where it says Starting Windows, it restarted again. It would not go past that 'Starting Windows' part. I tried using Startup Repair from my Windows 7 installation disk but that didn't fix it. I tried to start up in Safe Mode. It only loaded some files before restarting again. The last file that it loaded before it restarted was CLFS.sys. I managed to get past the starting windows part by using Disable Driver Signature Enforcement. When I got to my desktop, a program called "Windows Recovery" started scanning my computer. It said I had to purchase their full module to repair my system. I knew it was virus so I went here to uninstall it. When I got back to my desktop again, I got a notification saying 'a program tried to change my default search engine' or something. When surfing, I would also get redirected to websites related to StopZilla. So I used system restore. When I did, I would no longer get redirected to websites related to StopZilla I'd still get redirected to other websites such as jamcamslive.com, all-allergies.com and some other websites I forgot. Another problem I have is when I use my Administrator account, I would get a BSOD. I had to use a regular account so I wouldn't get that. I would appreciate any help I get.

Hi jeremiahh,

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic397083.html you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take a few more days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
