VirusPro virus and malware

Microsoft Windows vista business - 32-bi...
June 7, 2010 at 07:26:45
Specs: Windows Vista, 2.66GHz/4GB
First: The VirusPro 'virus scanner' began running saying that my system was affected by a virus and began running a fake virus scan. At this time I turned off my computer and restarted in safe-mode. I ran AVG full scan(free version, updated to 6/4) in safe-mode which produced no results (outside of a few tracker cookies left over, which were deleted). After restarting and trying to run windows, the virus was still there (I wasnt entirely sure that AVG didnt get it when I ran the scan so I did a testrun of windows).

So I restarted, went back into safe-mode and system restored to a date that I was (fairly) sure I was not affected by any viruses.

After rebooting, the VirusPro seemed to have been removed, but malicious popups were opened in firefox when web pages were visited or at random. I do not know:
a) if the original virus/trojan/etc is actually deleted
b) what is causing the popups and how to go about deleting the source

Firefox:: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv: Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

I ran hitmanPro and it found 2 things (one of which it seemed to take care of immediately)--the other was partmgr.sys. It says that it is searching for a repair file. Any advice on what to do here?

Thanks by the way!

Do you have a purchased copy of Windows Vista business, or just an OEM (install disc) that came with your PC?. If you have a pruchased copy of Windows Vista Business, try using the "Repair" option by pressing "Enter" when it says "Press any key to boot from CD", the option should be next to the "Install" button. (You could also copy the partmgr.sys from the OEM disc and place into the correct folder on your drive which should be C:\Windows\System32\drivers).

If that doesn't work or you don't have said disc you could try using Alcohol 52% found here:

to create a virtual CD/DVD drive and mount the .iso file found here (which, you'll have to download with a Bit Torrent client unfortunately, but a link is provided to one):

Last problem now is that hitmanPro still returns partmgr.sys as a rootkit, however it is unable to remove it. (It searches for repair file for ~infinity time).

Everything else is good. Thanks guys.
