  1. Hi,

    Who told you to do that ?

    first you should run tdsskiller form kapersky

    when clean install and run malware bytes

    if problems persist try combofix. (warning, this could make windows not boot anymore)

    if all went well you have to fix boot record (here's a nice page that will help you http://peterhallam.com.au/dos-alureon-a/)


    If this didn't do the trick

    go to http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/

    and seek help there as their are chance you will not be able to recover from infection and then windows reinstall is the only option
  2. I would try viper rescue first. I have used this in the past, and it has worked great. You should be able to put it on a cd/usb and boot to it. It works well because windows is not loaded at all.

    follow the directions here

    this is a nasty rootkit, you may want to reload the os.

    Appreciative of your timely reply. The problem is that I have created a bootable CD but I cannot get either the AVG rescue disk or the Windows defender Offline rescue on the disc. Every thing I've read has major holes in the documentation so that I can get moving on a remedy.
