Advanced AntiMalware infection

Post by mikej1986 on Wed Mar 31, 2010 2:32 pm

Hello,
My computer has recently become infected with the AntiMalware virus. This has happened once before and the other forums on this site were very helpful in helping me get rid of the virus. Last time, I started the computer in safe mode and used malwarebytes to get rid of the virus. This time however, the virus seems to be a lot more advanced and I am getting VERY frustrated. First, the virus would not let me run malwarebytes from the normal windows operating mode. It uninstalled the copy I already had on, and when I tried to download a new copy, it would not let me install it. It would not let me run any other spyware software either. I tried renaming the malwarebytes file and that would not work. I then tried restarting my computer in safe mode to use antimalware. The virus seemed to have found its way to the safe mode also. Now, whenever I try to even start up in safe mode, I get the blue screen of death. When I try to start up normally, my screen goes blank. IS there any hope at all? Thank you so much in advance for any help you could offer. I am running windows XP by the way.

Thanks,
Michael

Download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] by OldTimer to your Desktop.

  • Close all windows and double click OTL.exe
  • Click Run Scan and let the program run uninterrupted
  • It will produce two logs for you, one will pop up - OTL.txt, the other will be saved on your Desktop - Extras.txt. Post both logs in this thread.
  • You may need to use two posts to get it all.

I am posting on this thread using another computer. At this point I cannot get the other computer to boot up normally or in safe mode, so I can't install OTL. When I try to start in safe mode it freezes on the screen with command lines. Trying to load normally results in the blank screen described above. Perhaps this is from the virus changing the explorer file? Is there anything I can do with a command prompt or do you have any tips on getting windows started either in safe mode or avoiding the blank screen under a normal start up?
Thanks so much. I'm going crazy with this...
