Horrible Malware Crippling my PC

Hey guys, I'm new around here, was wondering if you could give me a bit of help.

 

Today my computer seems to have contracted some dreadful virus which is absolutely crippling it.

 

It has erased all System Restore points and even blocked System Restore from opening until I rebooted into safe mode and accessed it from there. I was using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium, but the virus has repeatedly killed the process and there is no way of starting the software, even when attempting to use the "Chameleon" feature which is supposed to start MWB without alerting malware.

 

So I tried using RogueKiller, and a bunch of other software but to not avail -- I can't seem to find the malware and kill it.

 

So I tried installing Avast! Antivirus Premium (on a 30day trial) via a USB stick, but the malware also seems to be blocking USBs from being detected by the computer -- I even tried using a USB-passthrough on my keyboard, but that then knocked the keyboard out as well.

 

The malware cripples the PC to the point where it is absurdly slow, which it really shouldn't be given my components -- 4.8GHz i7-3770K, 12GB 1600MHz RAM, custom liquid cooling loop.

 

The computer normally runs smooth as butter, but I can't seem to get it to do anything lately. When I try to do too much at once it throws BSODs at me.

 

Whether I boot into Safe Mode or not, I can't seem to fight it.

 

Any help?

 

Best Regards,

 

Ryan

I'm having the same problem for over a week now. Malware is killing my machine. I've downloaded every malware killer on this website to no avail. Would love some suggestions. AVG shows no viruses. Anti-malware software removes one or two things and then shows me clean. One click and I'm right back to hijacked. I'm at my wits end.

Thanks in advance,

Jeanie

Hey Dragon-fly, I managed to resolve the issue myself, here are the steps I took:

 

http://support.kaspersky.com/8092

 

Then once you've done that:

 

http://support.kaspersky.com/8097

 

Took all night and most of the morning to finish scanning and then clean the PC but it removed whatever it was that was crippling my computer.

 

Good luck.
