Malware bytes/Hijack this cannot scan

Recommended Posts

Hi there

I seem to have picked up really gnarly piece of malware which I have been fighting with and finally decided to ask for help here (thanks for this forum!)

My main problem is that if I load windows normally it gets to the login prompt and up comes a system message box telling me it will shutdown in 60 seconds. The message is something like "The system is shutting down... NT Authority/System ... The system process Windows/System32/Services.exe... status code <blah blah>" I'm sure you have heard or seen it many times.

To solve this I run in safe mode with networking. At first I could not run any exe's, I found a fix for that online with a registry change. Next I cannot run any anti-malware apps, they run, but when the scan executes the process is killed and a lot of the time the executable is then corrupted and file locked in some way so that it cannot be deleted. Suffice to say both hijack this and malware bytes get killed when I run them.

I get some redirects from google, and at one point a fake windows antivirus application ran. I forget the name now, grr, I think it was windows antivirus pro; I killed the process and deleted the folder from program files and it seems to be gone.

Thanks for any help you can give :D
