I clicked on a link while on the internet and my computer was infected. I realized that "System Check" was not real and ended up with a black screen, lots of error messages about the disc being full and damaged etc. After checking in at a few web sites, I remembered that bleepingcomputer.com has helped me before and looked you up. I found your analysis of how to deal with "System Check".
By this time other sites had recomended running RKill (which I had based on previous contact with you). I was able to run it but at this point I can no longer open it. I also had MalewareBytes on my computer, I updated and was, and continue to be, able to run this. At this point, after following your recommendations re; Unhide.exe, I've been able to get rid of the black screen, get my icons back, and been able to repopulate "all programs". I don't think I've lost anything except my desktop screen saver.
However, as I follow your proceedures I can't do some things that I know are important. I can't open in Safe-Mode, I get a blue screen that I know is trouble. Before realizing that I'm overmatched here and need your help, I updated and ran "hijack this" but I'll refrain from sending you the log in case you don't need it. I know I'm still infected but I guess it could be worse. I also assume that if I don't eleiminate the problem it will grow worse. Can you help?
