    Welcome to Wilders.

    If you are able to boot into Windows Safe Mode, scan with one of the following:

    1. Scan/clean with SuperAntiSpyware Portable (Malware Signatures Up-To-Date at the time of download).
    2. Install, update and scan/clean with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
    3. Scan/clean with Hitman Pro (An active Internet connection needed for proper scanning/cleaning).

    If you are not able to get into Windows Safe Mode or the PC won't boot, update the Malware signatures and scan/clean with one of the many Antivirus Rescue CD's. Some examples are:

    1. Avira Rescue System CD
    2. Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10
    3. BitDefender Rescue CD

    There are a lot of free Malware removal tools listed here:

    There is a list of Antivirus Rescue CD's with links here:

    The only 100% sure way to be clean is to wipe the hard drive, partition, format, install Windows, install Windows Updates followed by installing other needed software.

    In the future you should routinely Image (to safe location) your Windows System Partition or whole hard drive. If you have a Malware infection issue you may then safely and easily destroy the Malware in a matter of minutes by Restoring a known "clean" Image. This avoids hours of stress and wasted time trying to clean Malware from the PC and not knowing for sure that the PC is 100% Malware free.
