We could try and Burn FRST and recovery console on another system ... That will burn the USB nicely, lets hope we have access to the system via that

It is a rootkit and at the moment I have been unable to track down a name for it...  If the Avast shields were running I would then have an  idea

    We could try OTLPE from a CD

    OK next we will work outside of windows
    Please print these instruction out so that you know what you are doing

    • Download OTLPENet.exe to your desktop
    • Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to a flash drive.
    • Ensure that you have a blank CD in the drive
    • Double click OTLPENet.exe and this will then open imgburn  to burn the file to CD
    • Reboot your system using the boot CD you just created.
Note : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from CD follow the steps here
  • As the CD needs to detect your hardware and load the operating system, I would recommend a nice cup of tea whilst it loads  :)
  • Your system should now display a Reatogo desktop.
Note : as you are running from CD it is not exactly speedy
  • Insert the flash drive with FRST on it
  • Locate the flash drive and run FSRT
  • The tool will start to run.

  • When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the flash drive. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
