|I have been struggling with a trojan for two days now. I would normally just reinstall a fresh copy of windows but the virus really got a hold into my computer. Here are the symptoms:|
I cannot paste anything (copy =>paste will not not for anything, files or text)
Windows Explorer has reverted to classic style, All other themes have been deleted.
The task bar doesn't show up when I start my computer, I can see the top of it but cannot drag it up to make it visible. It is not locked. I can make it visible by getting to the task bar properties checking then unchecking "Show Quick Launch". Also no programs running show up on the task bar.
I cannot install Windows SP3, which might fix the problems, but everytime I try it has a Cryptography error.
I cannot start any services (hence the cryptography error) when I do try and start it says missing needed files, or something along those lines.
I am unable to install many programs, I tried to install: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, since I read on a site that it might help. When I try to run it,it says "Failed to load control Vbalgrid, from vbalsgrid6.ocx, and it goes on from there.
I have Kaspersky Anti-Virus running, which found it when it was running gave me the option to stop, which I said stop and quarantine, but it still managed to load.
I would copy and paste the log but paste doesn't work(see above)
The virus infected the files:
Kaspersky recognized the virus as: Trojan.Win32.patched.aa
As Well as tons of registry values
I had a old backup of the registry which I used to fix the registry values.
Also, I used windows recovery tool to copy all of those files from the servicepackfiles folder to replace the files corrupted.
However all of my attempts have lead me nowhere.
I am looking for any suggestions on what anyone thinks should be done.
Thank you for your time,
