Generic Backdoor!dxx Virus help needed

February 24, 2012 at 02:51:06
Specs: Windows XP
I’ve had a virus now since Monday February 20th, it’s now Friday 24th February 2012.

Since obtaining this virus I’ve installed McAfee and PCTools, both have virus removal software, a scan takes around 2 to 4 hours and always finds a bunch of viruses.

I can run the Scan, delete the viruses run the scan again and it will find more viruses.

One virus that is always in the list is - Generic Backdoor!dxx PC Tools and McAfee both always ask me to restart the PC to remove this virus. If I do this, the PC will not restart, goes into Repair mode and the only way to get Windows 7 running again is to do a system restore meaning I still have the virus – rinse and repeat, I’ve spent hours/days trying to solve this now.

Another problem which is probably related is if I launch FireFox, I have some kind of google redirect virus, if I search something on Google like “hello” and then click on one of the results, it takes me to a site called and then redirects me to another page.

Is this all related, can anyone offer me any suggestions or advice here?

I noticed that on lot’s of forums people say to do a System Restore, my restore does not go back far enough now, all restore points contain the virus.
