A few days ago, my computer was apparently attacked by somethingor someone. At that time, I believe I didn't havea firewalla enabled of any sort except the crappy WIndows one. I finally installed McAffee, and a few days later, I began to have problems with my computer. It was rapidly slowing down and so I turned it off. When I turned it back on, I couldn't open any files because either the deletion of, or corruption of the rundll32.exe file in the C:\Windows directory. I don't know what exactl is causing this, but now seeing as I can't open any programs after about 10 seconds of logging into my Windows account, I can't install a Malware remover or any kind of that sort. I'm on my dad's computer right now asking for help. I'm going to see if he can get rid of it tonight. But if anything, worse comes to worse, I will probably re-install Windows.
Now, another side note. I need to turn on my computer in Safe Mode and access the System Restore every single time I turn on my computer. So then when it restarts after Sys Restore, I can log into my account, and the first possible 10 seconds of logging in, I can open any program. The only problem I have with that. When I download something such as a remover of some sort, or just plain anything, I can't run the .exe for it to install. And then when I restart my computer, and do the System Restore, it doesn't keep that .exe installer that I just downloaded becauseit backtracks before that. And there is also not enough time for me to download the application, then make a system restore point in any possible way. So I'm here now asking for help, and hopefully somebody can help me in some way. Might I add, it also doesn't work even in Safe Mode.
Help... please? I don't want to lose everything and re-install Windows...
