first download sp1 off Microsoft's website, then burn it onto a CD (or DVD). Disconnect the computer from the internet. format the hard drive. re-install windows, install SP1, go down to your local computer store and PURCHASE an internet security program (I recommend Mcafee, Norton or Trend micro), install internet security program, reconnect computer to internet.

tips:
1. if you want to save files, scan them with the PURCHASED internet security program.
2. DO NOT download illegal software (not saying you do)
3. DO NOT download everything you can find on the internet, BE CAREFUL!

If this is living through a Reinstall

by OH Smeg In reply to try

They need to wipe the HDD before starting the Install Process again Either Boot & Nuke

http://www.dban.org/

Or Kill Disc

http://www.killdisk.com/downloadfree.htm

Can be used to wipe the HDD and destroy all of the infection.

This is because these Utilities write zeros to every sector as apposed to Format only writing to every third Sector.

Yep there have been a number of Infections

by OH Smeg In reply to really?

Specifically written to take advantage of the Windows Format Option leaving 2/3 of the HDD untouched.

This allows the Infection to reappear quite easily and come back with a vengeance.

Naturally it doesn't appear straight away but sits waiting for a day or so before reappearing as more severe steps would be taken if it was immediacy apparent that the system was still infected before any Drivers or Updates where applied.

I take it that you are doing a repair install

and it isn't helping. If you are using a Laptop or Notebook don't use a destructive disk wiping utility as you may remove the Recovery Partition. See if this will help.

Turn off System Restore
<br><br>
Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
<br>
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/malwarebytes/mbam-setup.exe
<br><br>

* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.<br>
* At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.<br>
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.<br>
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.<br>
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.<br>
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.<br>
<br>
I would keep scanning with it until it is clean by closing out and rebooting and running it again.
<br>
Just to be on the safe side when you finish do an online scan with Bitdefender.

Remember to turn on System Restore when you have finished cleaning.
