Hello, best to go Manual or post a DDS and be sure its all gone,these can lock your system.

Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6-9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If GMER won't run skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.

Thanks

currently running superantispyware. As usual this will take forever x3.

So far it has found 1 malware trace: winlogon~shell.

The main problem with the manual route is that I have downloaded the explorer.exe onto a key*, but can't get to it on the infected macine because clicking "my Computer" in explorer starts the cycle all over again.

*took the machine offline as soon as the fake notice appeared, not too sure about plugging it back into the network until it's clean. Am typing this on a netbook, hence the poor typos...

SUPERantiSpyware said it found a malicious registry entry, which it removed. This made no difference

So I tried the manual route as descibed here, but so far no luck. The problem is that because I dont have a desktop or explorer I am finding it difficult to actually DO anything. Main problem seems to be getting the new "explorer" to load properly - I click run, the computer grinds for a bit, but that appears to be the end of the story.

When I start up again I have the notice again

I am now going to bed.......... Maybe tomorrow morning something will make sense!

Best to follow the Prep guide I posted. They will look thru the system and pull out all the bad guys.

Try this for the desktop//
Click Ctrl + Alt + Del to get the task manager up.
On the 'Processes' tab find "explorer.exe" and end that process.
Your desktop will go away.
Click on the 'Applications' tab and click New Task.
Enter explorer.exe as the task to start.
Your desktop will then come back.

Am currently running GMER. It wasn't easy to do, because every time I downloaded it, It never appeared on desktop, then I received the fake police notice again.

However:

Its now running and I hope to be loading the files to a new topic soon(ish)

Also, running explorer.exe just bought the warning notice up again immediately. I have been having to do everything through the task manager and browsing, without going anywhere near "my computer" (brings up fake warning), desptop (brings up fake warning) or downloads (folder empty, then brings up fake warning).

EDIT:

new topic now posted with DDS stuff

Ok, looks good and you included this, so all's good.
I have managed to run GMR, but it doesnt give me the option to save the results.

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

The current wait time is 1 - 3 days and ALL logs are answered.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
