Manual removal of viruses was more feasable and certainly required at times up until about 4 or 5 years ago. AV software didn't cut it some times and it was possible for some savvy people to manually remove viruses (I used to do it for customers). But times have changed and so have the viruses (read: the people who make them are getting more advanced). They are far more complex and multi-layered then they ever were before. Unless you know what you have, and what variant, it could be impossible to know where to begin.

If the available tools you tried didnt help I wouldn't reccomend popping the hood and gettign your hands dirty. You're just wasting your time.

IF the computer can be saved you can find online communities with virus removal experts that will help you. They use reporting tools and removal tools, but they also know how to use them and more specifically in what order.

Good luck!

Please run the following tool, it will give information on what is going on with your system, and help identify the redirections:

Download DDS from one of these locations:

Save to your Desktop

Double-click the dds file to run it.

When done, DDS opens two logs:

Save both reports to your Desktop.

Since these reports are large, please go to the Uploading website:

In: 'Select files to upload', click 'Browse', and 'Look in' the Desktop.

Select the DDS.txt, and click on 'Open'
You will see the following:
"Your file has been uploaded successfully: (Name and size of the file)"

Please copy the 'Download link'.
