When I woke up this morning and tried to wake up my laptop that runs Windows 7 from hibernate, it wouldn't wake when I tapped the power button, and instead just manually restarted it. I then got a BSOD that quickly vanished, but I recognized it as similar to a BSOD that I got about 4 times when I almost accidentally overheated my laptop a week or so earlier. I was worried that maybe I'd somehow overheated it overnight, and thought I'd be having hardware problems. So when I got onto my computer to find all of my files and programs suddenly vanished and warnings and such about hardware issues, I kind of freaked out, until I realized it wanted me to buy it, got suspicious, and immediately restarted my computer into Safe Mode with Networking to open up Malwarebytes (which I use as my main anti-virus, along with McAfee to keep my web surfing safer), update it, and run it. However, in safe mode everything was the same and I couldn't even access Malwarebytes, and had no internet access. I looked up on my sister's macbook and found that I had the System Check virus, and I proceeded to follow instructions given here: http://www.myantispyware.com/2012/01/02/how-to-remove-system-check-virus/. I did the re-naming file thing along with the trick that they gave to give me access to all of my files. However, I couldn't move on after the Malwarebytes step due to having no internet AND Malwarebytes won't update past an 11-days-out-of-date version. I also tried running TDSSkiller but it yielded no real results. I managed to get Malwarebytes to run, but it keeps finding the same files every time I scan or nothing at all. Current status of my computer: I deleted several .exe files that were obviously associated with System Check (named Wwu25gohefjweo42io.exe or something like that) after renaming them and the system check has stopped bombarding me with errors and such, I have recovered all of my C:/ files and pretty much most of my programs and such work fine. Nothing is working slowly. My start menu is still empty, a lot of what was originally on my desktop is still missing, and I have no internet. I have tried rebooting into Safe Mode and Safe Mode w/ Networking several times, but as it loads the necessary files the computer pauses and then just restarts. Whenever I start my computer in normal mode, right after the 'start' screen, it tries to run a hardware disk check or some such, and if I allow it, after it finishes my computer restarts and it starts all over again. I'm using my sister's MacBook right now and using a flash drive to install the preliminary system scanners onto my laptop and then transferring the logs via the same drive onto this site. I also think my infected computer is being attacked by the 'Windows 7 Antivirus 2012' Virus as it keeps popping up with 'A program running on this computer is trying to display a message', and I have had a similar problem with the same virus a few months ago...MBAM isn't helping and won't update. I think I probably have some TDSS issues.
