Hi there, I have fixed a lot of diff versions of this virus and have just got one to fix today that is repelling everything I try.
It's blocking Task Manager, MSConfig, Command Prompts, I can't rename the file, creating another user account hasn't helped, Safe mode just auto shuts down before loading and it restarts Windows the usual way. I've tried running Combofix and Hitman off a pendrive and it just blocks it. I'm just really confused about what I should try next.
Edit: I've got around it! Fortunately I'm in the position of having a computer to plug the drive into, so I plugged the infected drive into the other pc, selected 'show hidden files' in 'computer', went into Program Data, found the folder created by the virus, which was just a randomly generated selection of letters. Deleted the folder. Plugged the infected drive back into the correct computer, started up normally, plugged my pendrive in which has combofix on and now I'm running combofix. Bingo! I'll check startup in msconfig incase it still tries to start up something that isn't there anymore, which can sometimes crop up with annoying messages of 'file not found' on startup
