    I know you are prolly getting tired of this on but here it goes. I have the virus alert in the bar by the clock and some start menu items are missing or locked by admin,i am the admin. No control panel and IE is FUBAR. My whole system is EXTREAMLY slow . I keep getting alerts from SpyWare Dr. about Explorer.exe trying to write to the registery but Spyware Dr. stops it.

    Welcome to TSG :)


    Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.

    Download SDFix and save it to your desktop.
    Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
    (this is the drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix). DO NOT use it just yet.

    Before we start with the fix, we need to fix the restrictions.
    • Navigate to the SDFix folder (usually C:\SDFix).
    • Right-Click on XP_CodecRepair.inf OR W2K_CodecRepair.inf depending on your Operating System.
    • XP for all versions of Windows XP and W2K for Windows 2000.
    • Click o Install
    • Your desktop may refresh a couple of times, don't be alarmed.
    • Please reboot into Safe Mode and follow the instructions below.

    Reboot your computer in SAFE MODE" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup [but before the Windows icon appears] press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

    Open the SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
    • Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
    • It will remove any Trojan Services or Registry Entries found then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
    • Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
    • When the PC restarts, the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
    • Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
    • Finally copy and paste the contents of the results file Report.txt in your next reply along with a new HijackThis log.


    ===========================================


    Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from Here or Here
    Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
    • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
    • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
    • Once the program has loaded, select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.
    • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
    • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
    • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
    • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
    • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
    • Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.
    Extra Note:

    If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process,if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.
