Need expert help with my computer, and school's about to start!

Recommended Posts

Ok so I downloaded a ringtone from a site my buddy said was okay, and I guess it wasn't 100% okay. My main comp is now infected with some stuff that makes my computer restart by itself at odd times or start to shut itself down after showing me an error with a timer and a message saying that the shutdown is being caused by lsass.exe. Also, a message pop up when I boot up and get to my desktop saying "AVCENTER.EXE cannot be started" and something about how "it cannot be found, has been modified, or destroyed". Also explorer (not iexplorer) disappears and reappears every once in a while, or whenever i try to go to my computer or my documents or start a program (like MBAM) from my start menu.

I was able to get MBAM.exe and HJT to run in safe mode (i didnt use networking or command prompt, if that matters). I initially had 23 infections found by MBAM, so I cleared em out, except for 2 that needed to be deleted on reboot. I ran it again in safemode and the same 2 things are still there. I tried a 3 scan (using a full one this time) and those 2 things are there again. Below are my most recent MBAM and HJT logs.

I don't know what to do, and I am only worried since I am starting graduate school in a week and a half...so I would more than appreciate it if I could find some help here. Thanks so much in advance to anyone who replies to this!

Can anyone help me?? It's been more than 3 days...I need help BADLY! Now the computer that is infected won't even start up properly... after a few seconds of being on the windows loading screen it will either restart on its own or tell me that "windows could not start because the follwing file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM ". The only thing I have managed to do without errors or restarts is get to the recovery console (which I've had since the last time you guys helped me out to get rid of malware). So, please, if anyone could help me....you'd be my savior for the year.

WHAT DO I DO? I need to have my computer working next week!

Sorry, I'm just worried. I need someone's help. Thanks ahead of time.
