    System Gurard 2009:

    I’ve tried the above, but infection so bad now, could not get malware to run. I cannot get in via safe mode either, as pc just keeps re-booting.

    I’m on windows xp, home edition.

    Can anyone help me?

    I have been infected by this virus. I am on a toshiba L25 with windows xp SP2. I am logged in as the admin. The virus has disabled the internet (ethernet & wifi) and the registry editor & system restore, telling me to contact the admin, which I AM the admin ! The popups I keep getting are a red thing called ‘security tool’ and a blue screen that looks legit(but I know it is fake) called Windows Security Center. It has disabled the task manager and the registry editor and the system restore. Both ‘safe mode’ & ‘safe mode with networking’ dont work. I have to choose ‘directory services restore mode (windows domain controllers only) ‘ in order for safe mode to load.

    How do I get rid of the virus ( or is it a trojan or malware or spyware ?) I cant get online in order to d/l an avg or norton. I cant get into the registry editor and self delte. I am stuck. Thanks.

    restart your computer with a shortcut to mbam on your desktop and double click it before you see the sysguard icon appear on your toolbar. once it is started sysguard cant stop it. if you cant go online download it on another computer and move it over via a usb flash drive. i was able to install it w/o sysguard stopping me. other sites say if it wont let you install/run it try renaming the file.
