On with the problem. I was surfing on 2leep.com (humor website - I know, I have learned my lesson and I promise to do something more productive instead in the future) and, after clicking on a link, the following occurred
1) Graphic for the Java start-up (the coffee cup) appeared
2) A pop-up window showed up asking to install fix_pack107f_231.exe
3) McAfee anti-virus disables
4) Note: here is the exact link, broken in half with "++" in the middle, in case someone accidentally clicks on it
hxxp://2leep.com/bar.php?url=http://2 ++ leep.com/news/231594/0/more/
I performed the following
1) Closed the pop-up window by clicking on the "x", not by choosing option for "ok" and "cancel"
2) Tried alt-control-delete and found out that task manager has been disabled
3) Tried to start Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware, but it said the program is outdated by 200+ days and asked if I want to update... I was dumb enough to try and update
4) I clicked on the ok button to update and something downloaded. Installation begins but before it can complete, my computer crashes and went to a blue-screen error
1) Anti-malware is now broken (links are bad and when I tried to start the program via the program's folder, the error "Run-time error '5'" shows)
2) Windows firewall is now turned off
3) Opening almost any program "IE, Firefox etc." requires Windows to unblock it
4) Browser re-directs to random sites, sometimes even when I manually copy&paste the link into a fresh browser window
I tried next to
1) Run Regedit to bring back task manager, was successful by editing HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System and removing the line for DisableTaskMgr
2) I downloaded and ran RKill (again, had to unblock a couple of programs before it would run), but unfortunately it did not find/kill any process
3) Upon examining the list of processes, 2221299630:1370003835.exe is the most suspicious file... and I can't kill it by stopping it in task manager
So what do I do at this point? I have removed viruses and malwares from my computer before, but at least I knew the names of the offending program in those cases. This time, the person who wrote this obviously had in mind to make it hard for victims to look up the problem.
Your time and assistance will be much appreciated! If I can at least know the name of the virus, I will be more than happy to try and search for a remedy in the forums.
