I'll try running ComboFix again but it may have a error since a virus made me lose administrator stats...

-= Boot into safemode & login as th user with the name Administrator.. Then go to control panel & change your account type to Computer administrator.. Reboot..

Whats the administrator password? ???

I think a while ago a virus removed my safemode.

  • If at first you don’t succeed; call it version 1.0

I sense a re-install on the horizon.
Sorry to say, not very surprised.
I'd look at a full format and fresh install.
Maybe you can fix it, I don't know. I certainly wouldn't try at this point. You've borked it.

Don't think able to remove Safe Mode. Check jumpers for starters. Begin and boot up of single HDD, your system drive - should be C:\
Unclip the rest can add back on later. Sort out C:\ first.
Go cmos for setup when your computer posts, and check your IDE or SATA disks because you should be able to boot into Safe Mode. If you can't, then the intrusion could be nasty.

Anything from logs yet?

After reading some of his threads i realized that he keeps getting infected time and time again. Will he ever learn ?

@Donovansrb10: Why are you asking us what the admin password is on your computer ? How are we supposed to know ? I am assuming you were able to get into safe mode if you are asking for the admin password ?

A combofix log would be nice.
