Im getting really desperate now, started this thread a few days ago > http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/user-701733/cheeseman-81/
But it now seems to have gotten worse. I have been trying to do malware bytes scans & post the logs but i've been using my laptop to post on here & been trying to transfer the logs by flash drive, the problem is the virus is putting some files onto my flashdrives (i've tried two) which makes them unaccesible, its putting some files on them & deleteing doesen do anything, the flash discs now just show up as a folder icon now. im really worried now that i have passed the virus to my laptop now aswell.
I dont know how to get the MB logs on here now as the internet doesent work on the other PC.
Please help, dont know what to do next.
Also should say if i try to boot up in safe mode it just crashes & i get the BSOD.

To clean and prevent the malware from running on the Flash Drive.
Download and Run FlashDisinfector

You have a flash drive infection. These worms travel through your portable drives. If they have been connected to other machines, they may now be infected.
Please download Flash_Disinfector.exe by sUBs and save it to your desktop.
Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives including your mobile phone. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
Reboot your computer when done.

Note: Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive plugged in when you ran it. Don't delete this folder. It will help protect your drives from future infection.

When you plug the drive into the clean computer make sure you hold down the SHIFT key, which will stop any AutoRuns from executing. You can then run this tool:

Running On a clean Comp
You would need to run sub's flash disinfector on the clean computer first and hold down the shift key before connecting the external drive.
