KoobFace Virus - Unable to kill processes

December 15, 2010 at 20:48:19
Specs: Windows 7
i've read many removal tools stating to kill process,delete registry keys and files - this virus won't let me even get to anything to remove it. I am completely befuddled by this one.
my spouse is notorious for getting virus' - even with virus protection - but this one has me stumped completely.
Is there a way to get to these or do i just scrap it and reinstall?

it tries to load and stops - i can get to it in safemode - but i can't find any of the processes i have found listed to kill so i can attempt to manually remove the worm.... so far - i have found an wide array of things that have been changed the day the virus hit the laptop..system 32\catroot, catroot2, NDF eventlog.etl...among many others.. i am not very familiar with windows 7, i am trying to feel my way around it.
