Microsoft Security Essentials won't run after rootkit/virus/trojan
Hi

I was hit by 3 or 4 trojans, at least 4 virus files and who knows what else. Right now, I cannot start or run Microsoft Security Essentials. Therefore my netbook must still be infected. I have no idea what to do next, and need help.

I have a Netbook with windows XP home edition. No CD rom, disabled Boot from external (so I can't boot from a USB key)

- had the trojan dos alureon.a which seemed to allow fqb.exe, fqc.exe, fqd.exe, and fqe.exe to be installed. The effect of these programs, among other things, was to disable Microsoft Security Essentials and the windows firewall
- I manually disabled my internet connection
- I used TDSSKiller to remove the one trojan, and rootkit virus was detected and removed
- I ended up going into safe mode with DOS prompt to force delete the fq*.exe files
- ran malwarebytes' anti-malware (full scan) and found and quarantined 2 trojan downloaders and 1 trojan fraud.pack
- used regedit to remove O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-18\..\Run: [8DDYX0ZBPZ] C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\Zqd.exe (User 'SYSTEM') and O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-18\..\Run: [XMZH42I4GI] C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\Zqc.exe (User 'SYSTEM')
- ran HiJack This
- ran DDS by sUBS and saved files DDS.txt and Attach.txt
- ran GMER.exe from the desktop, no activity reported

However, I can't get MS Security Essentials to even open. I have

- deleted and reinstalled the program
- used Process Explorer on run32dll.exe to see if it was pointing to an alternate DLL to run (the command line says gives the argument to run the run32dll.exe with resutilsz.dll EGFM (or something like that) -- is that okay?)
- renamed msseces.exe (the security essentials exe) to something else and tried to run it
- edited the registry (and edited it back again when that didn't work)
- tried running MS Security Essentials in safe mode, it opens but does not run
- tried re-enabling MS Security Essentials via services.msc (where it once showed as disabled, but now does not show)
- tried re-enabling Security Centre via services.msc (shows as disabled, start option greyed out)

More information on the problem
I've rebooted a few times while trying to resolve the issue. It's really taking a very long time to start up, and there's some kind of wickedly bad sound coming out of it now. I mean, the startup tune sounds like it's vibrating the speaker due to volume. The virus did have a sound feature which was some voices, guys talking, no idea what they were saying or if it was English. Any ideas folks? Or do I just copy what I can salvage and take it in to Best Buy to have the thing fixed and a newer OS installed?

closing thread
I managed to figure out how to boot from a USB at http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?id=44722. I loaded up a Linux-based USB support stick as per http://free.avg.com/us-en/226162. THEN turned on my netbook and scanned it. AVG found no infection, only a warning on a file (with no other explanation than a warning). I renamed that file and eventually deleted it. Took more than an hour to run the scan on the netbook. I then rebooted into Windows Safe Mode and chose a restore point. Problem was, the only restore point available (user never created restore points and neither did Windows) was on the same date as the problem manifested itself. Did it anyway.

I got back the Security Centre, but no MS Security Essentials. I tried reinstalling it, but that takes down the entire Security Centre again (eg firewall). So I need to do something else to fix the OEM registry or some such thing. Will reformulate a question based on this problem, and post in an appropriate forum if I can't figure it out.

I am closing this because technically, I do not have a virus or trojan anymore.

One last comment on the solution: I stopped using Microsoft Security Essentials, as it seems that its failure to restart is a known problem. I am using Avast, and everything is running fine.
