Virus stops Hijackthis in safemode from running, and stops Firefox/explorer

By loudspeaker ·
Hi there people, I've just got a nasty virus that got past norton antivirus and infected my system.
I tried desinfecting but norton doesnt do it, doesnt even find it. I tried hijack this but the trojan/virus stops it from running, i tried googling for hijack this but the virus shuts down explorer/firefox as soon as i try clicking on anything that has to do with common antivirus programs and hijackthis. Now i tried all of this in safe mode with networking as well, same thing there. So im basically stuck.

I have no idea what to do now, can anyone perhaps give me the name of a very good but not so well known anti virus program?

Virus stops programs and google

by loudspeaker In reply to Couple

Thanks for the reply. The problem is, you cannot googlesearch nor rename important files on my infected machine since the virus (now identified as Virut.nbm) either shuts down internet as you click on anything "important" or that the virus feels the "signature" of hijackthis, or other mainstream programs and stops them from starting up.

Now, what i ended up doing was to install a clean version of windows and over that installation, start the antivirus program (Nod 32) to desinfect the computer.

Thanks for the help anyway

You NEED to use a NON-infected system

to get the utilities you need.

Then rename.

Then copy over and run.
