I've never seen anything like this before. I had downloaded Combifix and was trying to download the rootkiller program that was mentioned onto my Windows 7 64 bit PC.
I've been having difficulty with admin user files seemingly going berserk and not allowing me access to many of the files and folders I've created. These aren't system files but document and ancillary program files. No other malware detection software has been able to detect a problem, mostly (it seems) because much of the havoc is done under the guise of "admin files" I've never heard of. Anyway, to get to the part that I've never heard of or seen before, as I'm running combifix and trying to download the root killer software, a screen that I've never seen (and can't believe it's an actual Windows screen); loads with a mostly blank screen except for an emoticom at the top with a frown and I believe two cliclkable panels, "reload" and "shutdown" at this point the PC is obviously struggling and both the never before seen interface and the actual screen behind it are getting less stable, wavering and flickering. When the screen stabilizes for a moment, I try to get back to Bleepin Computer's home page and the PC acts like Linda Blair with the monitor ready to jump off the desktop in an effort to keep me from returning to bleepin computer.
I'd think this would have to be some sort of malware with the capacity to defend itself. I'd love to hear any similar experiences, if-for no other reason-to keep me from pumping a few rounds into the CPU thinking that would be the best solution. I feel like after dealing with crapware. Oh, any ideas about what this problem is or what it might take to remove it or protect against it in future cases would be greatly appreciated-when my blood pressure returns to normal.
