Brilliantly designed virus or just faulty computer?


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I'm new here, and after days and days of lurking the internet for solutions, I decided I'd try and ask for help in the forums, given that all the posts dated back to nearly 3 years ago.

Anyways, here it goes:

To put it simply, my computer got infected with a nasty virus that would shut down a lot of critical services on startup, preventing me from installing practically any antivirus, not being able to copy/cut folders or even drag them around. It also disabled Avast and the Windows Installer Services, and apparently my soundcard no longer exists and I can only hear the computer bleep.

Oh well, when all of this happened, what I first thought (I will just stop here and I won't go into much detail of what happened afterwards, for reading's sake) is to scan the computer with Malwarebytes. Installation went fairly normal but as I tried to run it, this little fellow showed up:

Run Time Error '372':

Failed to load control 'vbalGrid' from vbalsgrid6.ocx Your version of vbalsgrid6.ocx may be outdated. Make sure you are using the version of the control that was provided with your application.

I tried several things, but I'd like to know what's your take on this, maybe I got something wrong in the process of fixing it. As I said, I'm pretty sure I can get rid of this guy using Malwarebytes, but it seems as if the virus had made sure to disable all the possible ways of fixing it, so it pretty much feels like a check mate.

So... is any of you guys a good chess player? :P

Thanks a lot in advance.

Cheers!

All of this will happen if you disable/delete Remote Procedure Call (RPC).
