I'd have posted ''hi, my name is blah and...'' etc. , but I' not really in the mood, as my pc
has become infected with 4 extremely persistent viruses, rendering it almost entirely incapacitated. I'm posting this whilst in safe mode with networking, because the trojan raises my processor usage to 100%, causing everything to work excruciatingly slow, or crash.
I've been working on it for about 15 hours now, using various antivirus/malware software, but none of them work the way they claim to. Specifically, they all spot the files, but they don't remove them.
MBAM spots them as:
1: Vendor: Trojan.Malpack.Gen, Category: File, Item: C:\xhtrma.exe
2: Vendor: PUM.Disabled.SecurityCenter, Category: Registry Data,
Item: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center|ANTIVIRUSDISABLENOTIFY
the other 2 registry files are roughly the same, saying instead of ANTIVIRUS FIREWALL and UPDATES.
I've tried rkill, SUPERantispyware, hitmanpro, autoruns, tdsskiller, DSS, sophos virus removal, etc.
Nothing works. The registry keys show up as empty in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT -> SOFTWARE -> Microsoft. There is nothing to see or change there.
For the love of god, someone help me get these infernal viruses off my computer.
Thanks in advance.
