Running WIndows 7
Protect your PC did a drive by download on my wife two days ago...now...it owns me.
Have tried the guide on bleeping.com and it appears that the trojan has morphed, or I have another virus as well.

Had rkill and malwarebytes on this from a previous version of this delightful trojan.
run rkill it says everything is good. Howeer, no .exe file can run in normal mode or safe mode
This means I cannot run malwarebytes.
Cannot open Task Manager to manually work, normal or safe.
Cannot open explore to move malwarebytes RKill, Kaspersky or others from USB or DVD onto desktop
Cannot get into regedit etc etc.
Trying any of these will get a PYPC pop up.

Managed to get Webroot up and running but it stops after two files on the winlogon.dll.

It was a cheap PC so the box I don't care about, need a small portion of the data, not backed up for a few months.

I am a relatively adept end user but not computer geek.

Download FixExec.exe to your desktop.
Double click on downloaded file to run the fix.
When the program has finished, it will generate a log on the desktop called FixExec.exe.
Post the log in your next reply.

NOTE. If for any reason you're not able to execute FixExec.exe rename it to FixExec.com, FixExec.pif or FixExec.scr.
