Ok, so AVG just came up about 30 minutes ago after detecting these files : c:\windows\System32\consrv.dll, c:\user\Mescaline\AppData\Roaming\dwme.exe, c:\Users\MEscaline\AppData\Local\Temp\dwme.exe. It also showed a file called AV Security 2012V121 located in C:\Windows\SYSWOW64\ folder. In a flash I had the files sent to the Virus Vault, but decided to do a search and found this forum. There was a topic I ran into here:


I also looked at this from Kaspersky:


And from what I read I DO NOT WANT TO RESTART my computer, because apparently the registry has been changed and won't let me boot even in Safemode. I am afraid to immediately do a system restore because I'm afraid it won't make it that far (it has to restart eventually). My system is Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and I was using Firefox when the attack occured. My question is, what is my immediate action? I noticed in the Virus Vault I could "restore" the file, and possibly use the Kasperksy Virus Removal Tool to remove it because that was recommended as a good fix for this, but alas, my fear is great and I would like the advice from a forum of computer vets before I make any moves... thank you in advance for anyone who lends me a guiding light.
