Trojans and virus

Dell / Mm061...

Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 1.662 GHz / 1022 MB
You name it my machine has it.
Was surfing away nicely yesterday when all of a sudden Windows anti virus pro popped up, never saw it before, then an avalanche of things started going wrong, something called crypt.FXS popped up on my security protection, then I couldnt run anything, no icons would work.
I managed to reboot in safe mode and run a virus scan, the Windows Anti virus pro, and the crypt.fxs seemed to be gone, but then something called desot.exe started, and basically will not let me start anything up, cant even open windows explorer.
Is all lost or is there anyway to regain even the most basic functions of my PC so I can at least back up some files.
Any help greatly appreciated.

Regards, Conor.

Many thanks Neoark for your reply, I can re-boot in Safe Mode no problem, but as I said before there is something called desot.exe that seems to block any program of any sort starting up, an msdos window pops up and then promptly disappears when i try to start any program, if it be windows explorer or system restore in system tools, nothing works.
So if I even managed to download Kaspersky in safemode if I clicked run the .exe file it would be halted in its tracks by whatever is going wrong in the machine.
Again any advice is greatly welcomed.

Thanks, Conor.

Note: I can help you remove malware manually. Please avoid installing/uninstalling or updating any programs and attempting any unsupervised fixes or scans. This can make helping you impossible. First Track this topic. Then follow:

1) Can you please post your AVZ log:
Note: Run AVZ in windows normal mode and make sure you are connected to internet. If avz.exe doesn't start, then try to rename the file avz.exe to game.pif and try to run it again. Pause/Stop your antivirus, firewall software (if any), close games, text editors and all other programs; leave Internet Explorer/Firefox running, before following the steps below.

i) To create the log file, download AVZ by clicking HERE. Please save this file to your desktop or "My Documents" folder.

ii) Next, unpack the file to a new folder using the Compressed (zipped) folders wizard built into Windows XP/Vista, or a zip utility of your choice.

iii) Once you have unpacked the contents of the zip archive, please launch the file AVZ.exe by double clicking on it or right clicking and selecting Open.
Note: If you are running Windows vista launch AVZ.exe by right clicking and selecting Run as Administrator.

You should now see the main window of the AVZ utility.

--> Please navigate to "File" => "Custom Scripts". Copy the script below by using the keyboard shortcut CTRL+C or the corresponding option via right click.


Paste the script into the execution window by using CTRL+V keyboard shortcut, or the "paste" option via the right click menu. Click on Run to run the script.

--> Choose from the menu "File" => "Standard scripts" and mark the "Healing/Quarantine and Advanced System Analysis" check box. Click on the "Execute selected scripts" button.
Automatic scanning, healing and system check will be executed. A logfile (avz_sysinfo.htm) will be created and saved in the LOG folder in the AVZ directory as Upload to and paste the link here.
* It is necessary now to reboot your machine, because AVZ might disturb some program operations (like antiviruses and firewall) during the system scan. All applications will work properly after the system restart.

2) Download and Run DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log: DDS Tool Download Link. When done, DDS will open two (2) logs

   1. DDS.txt
   2. Attach.txt

Upload the logs to and paste download link in your next reply.
Note: Disable any script-blocking programs and then double-click on the DDS.scr icon to start the program. If you did not disable a script-blocker that may be part of your antimalware program, you may receive a warning from your antimalware product asking if you would like DDS.scr to run. Please allow it to do so.

In your next reply, please include download links to the following:
