    Run "Malwarebytes" in safe mode.
    You have no secrets on the internet.
    Be careful and vigilant. The internet should be considered like roads, avoiding an incident is better than trying to survive one.

    Boot into safe mode / networking. Get teamviewer install / run it. Then send the ID and password to me in a PM. I can check it out from here, if you want

    You should have added this to the other post you created. So, people can see what has already been done

    Please make sure System Restore is disabled on ALL drives, and post a Hijackthis log here for Speedy etc to analyze.

    Try deleting ALL the files manually from my post in the other thread.

    Looks like its fixed. Vundo, trojan.dropper, and Disabled.SecurityCenter were on it, about 27 infections (which mbam picked up and removed). Had to get into safe mode / networking first to get rid of security tool. For some reason, mbam would install, but mbam.exe wouldnt install. So, had to upload my copy of mbam.exe to fix it. Then it worked. Then removed the registry entries, with trojan remover.
