Right, i've had it. I've been battling with viruses for the last week. I've removed about 40 000 - 50 000 nasty files. Some came back. Over the last week I've used;
Avast (not worth the memory it uses)
Ad-aware (always had)
ZoneAlarm (always had, though it was broken until 2 days ago)
Protector plus (because it boasted it could fix this last problem, which it can't)
...about 4 other programs that boast what they can't do.
I had Sophos before, but that slowed my computer to about as slow as it is now.
I can't actually shutdown properly, it shuts down and boots up again, I have to turn the power off as soon as I hear the processor fan stop, and before it comes back on
I can't boot up in safemode.
I need to sort this out soon or I'll start failing my course.
I dont mind about the safemode and startup problems because I'm going to be wiping the computer when I can afford an external hard drive. (not soon enough)
THE main problem is a little git called C:\WINNT\system32\ycsrdb.sys - I remember that by heart. It also has been seen around RAMville hanging out with qo.sys, doing dodgy dealings in the park at night wearing trench coats and sunglasses...
Many sites boast solutions and don't have them, i've downloaded 3 or 4 software that boast easy removal, but don't. Some detect it and want me to pay to remove it (but I have nasties looking at my details, so i'm not putting my bank details up for adoption) Some say they'll remove it but dont detect it. AVG detects it, will remove it, but CANT.
I completely give up solving this on my own steam, and submit a universal cry for help.
