You are really doing a great job.  :)  This is a serious infection we are dealing with....

Please run a new Scan with FRST just as you have been normally and post the new log so that we can see what we are dealing with now.

Try to run ComboFix from Safe Mode.  If a log is made please attach it....if not let me know what happens.  :)

It started running in safe mode, got fairly far by the looks of it, and the stopped with an error message in 7 languages saying 'Incompatible OS'.  :-\

When I try to run it, or run as admin, I get the usual '"The System could not find the environment option that was entered."'. If I try to run it from safe mode or command prompt, I get the error message "The subsystem needed to support the image type is not present."

What now?

Hi, neither of those SystemLook links work (on either my infected or other computer). :( Also, attached is my latest FRST64 scan.

In other news, a disappointing ending to World War Z... Who'd have thunk it.

Run a new scan with FRST and attach the new log as well as doing the following...

SystemLook

Please use either of the following links:

I agree with the WWZ ending too.  Not quite what I was expecting.

Hi,

Just so you know...this infection is the real deal and effects every system differently so this may take a bit.  :)

Please go back to Reply 10 and follow the instructions there.  Do Not run these instructions in Recovery Mode.  If possible, please just run them on your system in Normal Mode or Safe Mode.  If you run the instructions in Safe Mode, allow the tool to reboot your system (or do so manually if asked to do so) and then let FRST complete it's run.  It will produce a log that I need for you to attach.
