Second PC in two days infected with this virus. First one was cleared using the Bleepingcomputer guide. On the second one, rkill and TDSSKiller run OK, but I can't install MBAM -'could not complete the operation' etc. I'm logged in as Administarator in Safe Mode.
Thanks buteman -I've already tried hitman and the Trendmicro online scans 9sorry, I should have mentioned that in my first post). They both found problems, but infection still there after re-boot. I've also tried renaming the MBAM file, but that didn't work either. This seems a particularly difficult bug!
If you still have problems then try the software below.
Use a good pc to download and install program/this then downloads antivirus and antivirus signatures from microsoft/it then burns this to a cd or dvd.
Go into the bios (del or f2 normally) and set pc to boot from cd.The cd will start and remove all of the problems as windows will not be running.
Hope this helps,
OK, PC now boots normally with no sign of the virus. All folders are available again.
BUT - the desktop has no icons visible. Right clicking the desktop does not produce the usual drop-down menu where 'arrange icons' can normally be seen. Further thoughts please (I wondered about a system restore, but that had been turned off sometime during the procedure).
