OK, a variation of a theme: Download to thumb drive from another computer

Turn off system restore in infected puter

Go to safe mode

Install MWB from TD and run.

If it won't install, rename the installer file then run.

Thanks for the input. I still haven't had a chance to get to a computer to use a thumbdrive on, but will definitely try that tomorrow. If that doesn't work...reloading windows as well. Whoever designed this virus needs to get a job with the CIA or FBI, LOL....this is one heck of a virus...imagine what this person could do if they did positive things for the world. ha ha.

Kyler, in that last line, I meant to say "if it won't install, rename the installer's exe file.

I completely agree that there's a lot of unnecessary crap going on that takes a lot of time and energy from people, including the people who write malware, viruses, worms, rootkits and so on. I have a hunch a lot of it is coming from other countries and I wouldn't trust them to be in the CIA, FBI or anyplace else in this country. :>
