    This reply is a snipit from similar cases. You should uninstall MBAB - it is likely corrupted. Problems with 'command prompt' suggests that the Message # 3 link is appropriate for your case (os = xp is assumed).

    In case of difficulty, attempt this method (follow link for 'How To')
    • Message # 1 - Effective against other non-plug and play exploits
    • Message #3 - link to 'fixit download' has demonstrated its effectiveness in many cases. Go to message # 3 'fixit download'

    No way to access Internet in regular Safe Mode.

    But you may do it in Safe Mode Networking if the Malware will let you!

    Or as an alternative put on a CD or Flash drive.

    If you can get on with Safe Mode Networking, then do the following in order.

    Copy all inside the box and paste to an open Command prompt. It will close the Command prompt when finished.

    @echo off
    sc stop TDSSserv.sys
    sc delete TDSSserv.sys
    D/L install and run ATF-Cleaner clear all except passwords in all browsers you have. Run repeatedly until no more found.

    D/L Xclean_Micro
    No install, just run it delete all it finds decline to reboot on each item found, until the program finishes then reboot.

    Xclean will run minimized and will pop up a window if it finds anything. If it finds nothing it will exit.

    Please make a note of what it found if any as it has no log.
    If it finds several things reboot to Safe Mode and run again before continuing below.

    Get and run Malware Removal Tool by Joe Pestro

    When above is completed reboot back to Safe Mode Networking and do the following..

    When Fixit.cmd finishes it will reboot to normal, then the below is the meat what we need to run to really get fixed:

    Do the TechSpot 8 steps:

    Skip no steps (do not install another virus scanner as you already have one).

    Most importantly update MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSptware!

    Before you scan with SuperAntiSpyWare do the below:

    SuperAntispyware extra config

    After installed double-click the icon on your desktop to run it.

    Update the program definitions.

    Click the Preferences button.

    Then Scanning Control.

    In Scanner Options make sure all boxes are checked except #3 Ignore System Restore.. are checked:

    MalwareBytes extra config

    After update but before running
    Click settings and confirm all are Checked.

    I repeat Update these 2 programs.

    Run them and attach their logs.

    Do this correctly and we will make a short job of this!
