Well, @*%# me if this ain't one nasty piece of malware! To put that another way, I've actually been around the block a few times and so I'm somewhat embarrassed to say it nevertheless took me several hours to beat this one
If you've got a recently modified version of this beast and it's jacking all of your safe modes, you're gonna need to create an AV repair disk (remember those?). There are a few of them out there, obviously, but here's a reasonably good how-to link:
This process should work for you but please note...the instructions as listed are just bit off when it comes to the "WindowsUnlocker utility". You cannot just "Click the start button at the bottom left corner of the Kaspersky Rescue Disk main screen" and "Select and run the Kaspersky WindowsUnlocker utility".
Instead, you must click the "start" button, as indicated in the article - i.e. Kaspersky's conceptual equivalent of the standard Windows "start" icon logo in Windows 7 located, as you'd suspect, in the lower left corner of the Kaspersky GUI - and then select the "terminal" option from the menu. Once the terminal option is running, in the command dialog prompt enter the command "windowsunlocker" and press Enter on the keyboard. Next, select option 1 Unblock Windows - and you should be good to go in terms of Kasperky's version of a registry cleaner. Beyond this minor detail, the instructions as listed should get you where you need to go. Once you do get control of your system back, however, as suggested in the article please do run RKILL, MAM, and SAS, (or their equivalents) as well as a standard registry cleaner, if you have them...
One final point...among other things, this damnable piece of shyte took over my webcam upon initial infection as well. Point being, it apparently jacked up the webcam's driver and, even after the infection was cleaned, my normal boot time - post cleaning - was still 4-5X the normal boot time! Net net, I had to uninstall the webcam, remove the Logitech software, and reinstall both the device and the software (i.e. drivers) in order to get back to a normal boot process. Like I said at the start...one NASTY piece of malware!! On Xmas day, no less. I'm a bit of a Pacifist at heart but...wouldn't mind one day running into the obnoxious Jokers who spend their meaningless and pathetically useless days and nights coding up this idiotic...........Stuff!!
