I've been having a lot of trouble recently regarding Malware and would really appreciate any help I could receive. I think it's the System Check malware.

Yesterday, my computer was working fine up until it started getting hit with Blue Screen after Blue Screen. Every time I restarted, another Blue Screen would appear within 1-2 minutes upon start up. At the time, I was playing a game called Vindictus when the first of it occurred. After looking around, I took some advice from another website and disabled one of the two audio devices that had appeared. This stopped the Blue Screen from appearing but about half an hour after start up, Microsoft Security Essentials picked up an Alureon.A virus. I had MSE clean the virus and the computer restarted as it should have. Then, the Blue Screen started again. I booted into Safe Mode following this and used MSE again, which detected Alureon.FL. It deleted it and restarted and the computer seemed to be working fine. To be on the safe side, I ran TDSSkiller first, which picked up and deleted a Phibar virus. Then, I ran Malwarebytes Anti Malware but as it started updating, the program suddenly stopped working and a stream of errors appeared on the screen.

Windows - Delayed Write Failed
Failed to save all the components for the file \System32\00004823. The file is corrupted or unreadable. This error may be caused by a PC hardware problem.

Then a program I'd never seen before appeared called System Check. It started scanning and pulled up numerous errors. I've already looked around this forum and know that the program is a form of malware. All my icons and files seemed to vanish. I tried following the steps on Remove System Check. I booted into safe mode, ran rkill and it started fine, but it didn't stop any processes. I then ran Malwarebytes again and it picked up a few files, which I had cleaned. However, upon restart, the System Check started again. I booted again into safe mode and repeated rkill to no different results. I ran Malwarebytes again and it picked up more files. Cleaned again and restarted, but System Check appeared again and so did more files for Malwarebytes to pick up.

I'm not sure if the Alureon and Phibar virsues had much to do with it. i just thought I'd add it in just to be as detailed as possible.
If anyone can help me, I would really appreciate it.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
