trojan, urgently need help

May 1, 2009 at 09:27:22
Specs: Windows Vista
At the moment I'm having to use my brother's laptop
because the trojan has stopped my internet
connection, I'm not sure on the type of it but I know it's
pretty bad, SpyZooka and Spybot - S&D can't pick it
up. Yesterday it said I had no audio output installed
and today it is normal, I've tried system restore.

I found out I had the virus when windows defender
came up with some warning message saying trojan -
severe and at the bottom said remove, I removed and it
closed my 2 internet pages and restarted my
computer, when it came back I got the same
message, this time I did the same, it said taking
action again and this time didn't restart, now it doesn't
come up with the message, but my internet cant
connect and the audio output said there wasnt
anything installed, but it's back. Also I tried
downloading 2 programs; XoneSoft I think it was called
and ZoneAlarm, XoneSoft when I downloaded it said it
wasn't compatible with Vista (it did on the advert) and
ZoneAlarm when I downloaded it and installed it and
tried to open it it just comes up with "ZoneAlarm has
stopped working."

so far I've tried:
System restore
Windows defender scans
Spyzooka scans
SpyBot - S&D scans

Please do not say something along the lines of
download this program... because I can't download
anything, Or say go on something on the internet
because I can't connect to the internet.

If you have no solutions, could you say if it would be
worth buying a new hardrive, or if it would be implanted
on the laptop, because I don't mind paying £70 or w/e
for a new hardrive.

Ok, I won't say download Malaware Bytes or a2 Squared to your brothers laptop & install on your pc.

I will say, rather than buying a new hard drive, reinstall windows after formatting the disk.

That should clear the virus, & is cheaper than a new hard drive.

Before posting try google. Backup. Use anti virus software.
