help

my laptop is going through a virus attack. i have deleted about 7 virus trojans but i still have popups/adware/spyware telling me i have viruses. my background changed by itself to "SPYWARE DETECTED" and its telling me to download another virus software, which i wont do. i used esets nod 32 to scan my computer and it doesnt find any virus's but there are files that cant be opened or are corrupted. i also scanned it in safe mode and it deleted about 3 virus but it still doesnt work. i cant use the internet, system restore, or most of my other programs (e.g. itunes, windows media player). firefox and internet explorer open but they are not connecting to the internet even after my wireless IS connected. i was going through an attack from like 1959.cn or something like that. i dont know what to do and i'll even delete my hardrive but i am still looking for the Windows XP reinstallation CD. Help i dont know what to do. :(

thanks in advance
Luigi

Load the following progs to a thumbdrive or burn them to a CD using another PC. Run them in this order and remove all they find
1- Ccleaner Slim
2- Malwarebytes
3- Avast Free plus the updates and let it do a bootscan on reboot and move all it finds to the chest.
4- unhackme in case it is a rootkit

Then after it's clean you can probably use winsockfix to repair your connection.
Let us know how you make out.

You can find all those utilities listed on one page in my signature link for easy access.

yes , you can still run a bootscan with avast and after it clears out your infections, you can either disable it or uninstall it.

Be sure to use unhackme too.
