Need HELP with virus! All scans cause lockup or memory dump
Posted on 2007-04-09
I messed up bigtime! I'm an IT and I brought a computer home that unknowingly had 30+ viruses on it and it spread to 2 of my home machines. Yeah, yeah...I got too comfortable! Lesson learned!!!
I have one my machines clean, but my other one will NOT fix. It is Windows XP Home and I have disabled system restore. Whatever my computer has, it has disabled my normal AV (F-prot), so I've tried bitdefender & trendmicro's online scans. I also got AVG-anti-spyware (aka ewido) installed. It does fine until it gets into the C:\Windows\System32 directory. It locks my computer up every time. My screen either goes black or I get a memory dump error.
I've tried scans in Safe Mode as well, and it still does this.
Any help would greatly be appreciated!!!
