Yes, infected computer boots into windows fine. No internet, and you can't open any program except my virus scans ironically. However despite finding 15 infected traces and moving them to chest the virus still exists.

Leads me to believe it's a root kit which is why I tried to run TDSSkiller.

So I booted into Safe Mode and downloaded MSE and did a full scan. Nothing. I don't know what to do =S
Have you tried a rootkit detector?

I know this Virus such a PITA to get rid of. It would not let me access flashdrives either.

Set your BIOS to allow you to boot from CD at startup. Once set, add your Windows DVD to the drive tray, and press any key when prompted. Run through the setup to wipe your system clean; it will start you from scratch. You will lose all data in the process.

Okay, download superantispyware portable and rename to scan.

Move the file to the root of C: and reboot computer. Startup Safe Mode with Command Prompt, and then navigate to C:/. Then type in scan and press enter. Do A COMPLETE SCAN. It SHOULD find the viruses, since it doesn't need to be installed.

After its done, reboot and restart Safe Mode with Command Prompt. Type in SFC /scannow to check for problems.

Hmm mine doesn't turn up anything when I scanned it, and I was able to access internet in Safe Mode with Networking.

Oh, and is that the only means of solving this? Then again it might be best to reinstall the OS, I have never seen so many toolbars.

Is there a program that automatically declines to install toolbars/other junkware when installing stuff? Similar to how ninite.com does with certain programs? That seems to be a big issue my not-so-computer literate family is having

Follow what I said in my post above, it SHOULD remove the viruses. Here is the link to the Virus guide I made (works EVERYTIME) link.
