Looking for a little help here as I am at my wits end!
I have a Computer with XP on it... it has the Dept of Justice Virus.
I have removed this virus from other machines in the past, but this one is special!... its not going away!
I cannot boot to safe mode or any mode but regular windows... when I boot to safe mode it resets at avgidshx.sys... well until I renamed that , now it reboots at mup.sys.
Here is what I have done.
Step 1 - Kaspersky Rescue Disk
ran it, found itmes, removed them, still there on reboot.
Step 2 - HitMan Pro Kickstart - found stuff, removed, the computer never completed the reboot. Cold booted and still there
Hitman no longer shows any issues.
Step 3 - MSE Offline scanner. found a couple items and rebooted, still have the ransomware.
I am currently running avg rescue disk.
any help would be appreciated.
