    If the bad guys have been there for awhile, System Restore may not help unless you go WAY back.

    I would suggest you utilize the '8 Steps";

    (You may have to download from another comp and transfer files over - makes it hard I know)

    When you have ALL the required logs ready, start a NEW thread in the Virus and Malware Removal section - please use something for a title that actually means something, like '8 Step Logs Attached - Review Appreciated'.
