When I later tried to clean the thumbdrive with Malwarebytes, the infection spread back to my machine and it is much worse this time. I've lost 5 days of work trying to fix it.
Basically, Malwarebytes and Microsoft Security Essentials identify it as the Alureon.A infection. (I also had the Alureon.S version, but MSE removed it.) Neither MBAM or MSE is able to remove Alureon.A for me. Each finds it and tells me it has been removed. But when I do the restart that they each recommend, I find I'm still infected.
These infected conditions will not allow me to run Super AntiSpyware. It will scan the first 400-or so memory locations and then shut down my entire system. It will not proceeed to Registry or Files
TDSKiller found a rootkit and cured it. But after restart, I still have serious problems. Among other things, I cannot access Outlook Express or anything in Star-AllPrograms-Accessories because it's not showing. I cannot update MSE and I am getting bogus notifications about corrupted files from a yellow warning symbol in my task bar
What can I do to be rid of these infections?
