[Not curable - Virut] Need serious help

  1. I used this thread . . . http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html to try by myself but keep running into constant problems.

    Long story short, I knew I was infected when the speed of my comp slowed down so I found this and started at step one. I even skipped around a little cause I started without the internet working correctly so I ran Malwarebytes and AVG. Found many infections and disinfected them.

    So I come back and I get to step 3... My computer will not let me update for ****. Autoupdates ... I tried that and It wont respond. I went and downloaded SP3 because I never got it and my regedit wont work anymore so I figured that would help... but when I tried THAT it stops midway and says its missing "VBC.EXE".

    Please help, I dont know what else to do!

    Please, complete all steps you can and post all logs you can.
    Don't worry about SP3 for now.

    Yes, but major updates like service packs should be installed only on clean computers.
    We clean your computer first, then you'll be free to install SP3.

    Ok man, I skipped down to step 5 (GMER), downloaded the program and then when i click it i get the message "windows cannot access the specified device, path or file." so no log for that... moving on to the next step.

    The reason I skipped the malware bytes step again is cause I already did that before all of this and it takes a long *** time to scan... do you think i you think I should do it again for the log?

    You should run "Quick Scan" only and it doesn't take that long. I need it and both DDS logs.

    Your log says "No action taken" after each line.
    You either posted a log from before fixes, or you didn't apply any fixes.
    Please correct it.

    Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

    **Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**
    1. Please, never rename Combofix unless instructed.
    2. Close any open browsers.
    3. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
      • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
      • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
      NOTE1. If Combofix asks you to install Recovery Console, please allow it.
      NOTE 2. If Combofix asks you to update the program, always do so.
      • Close any open browsers.
      • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
      • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
      • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.
    4. Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
    5. When finished, it will produce a report for you.
    6. Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt"
    **Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

    Make sure, you re-enable your security programs, when you're done with Combofix.

    DO NOT make any other changes to your computer (like installing programs, using other cleaning tools, etc.), until it's officially declared clean!!!
