Windows 7: "Out of Memory" Error, all apps continually increase memory usage

One of them actually does have Trend Micro Anti-Virus that he paid for, but it didn't find anything on his computer and it has the same issue mine did. I haven't looked into his pc that much yet, but tomorrow I'm going to fix his and his brothers pc (the two who have the same problem as I do) and if i find anything i'll let you know. Thanks for the help.

P.S. We used tunggle because we were having issues detecting eachother with Dead Island otherwise because of issues with the lan of the game when it first came out.

Update!!!! I think i found the name of the virus or at least part of it. I transferred comodo to my friends computer via flash drive. After installing comodo i put the flashdrive back into my pc (now running mse and avg and anti). Immediately my computer was infected with Dorkbot!ink. My question is could this be what had affected my computer or is this just one of the virus's the original one could have downloaded in addition to itself.

As i'm running MSE on my friends computer is also found CeeInject.gen!dz. It also found something called uqxzzsw.exe but couldn't tell if it was malicious or not. The uqxzzsw.exe has written to the MBR as well, think i found the big bad wolf.

If it is indeed Dorkbot, heres some more info about it if it helps.

uqxzzsw.exe may be from Dorkbot randomly naming & copying its exe to the recycle bin.

Also,if the current AVs can not remove these viruses, you can try this:
Norton Rescue Tools?

But I would only use it as a last resort. Its quite aggresive, but should be able to remove it if all else fails.

I can get rid of the Dorkbot, however CeeInject.gen!dz persists, along with the part on the MBR. Trying to figure out how to clean the MBR as we speak, tried to use the windows 7 and rewrite it but it only rewrote the beginning part. The Uqxzzsw.exe is on the MBR.

I would suggest using a bootable partition editor such as GParted... its free, linux based, and it should allow you to easily delete the existing partitions and clear the virus even from the MBR!

It also found Vexral.A. There seems to be quite a bit wrong here.

Update... I attempted to install the update program for asus laptops to flash the bios... as it was installing the update program, not the bios, screen turned blue and the computer formatted his hard drive. Installing windows 7 again. I really hate this virus stuff...

Best bet in cases like this is to delete all partitions, and reinstall... if no well known antivirus will clean! Although...

Can you, or have you tried Norton Internet Security? Antivirus is definately an area where the saying "you get what you paid for" applies. Norton costs because it works! Its been voted the best AV for the last 3+ years by most of the most relaible magazines and websites out there! According to their website this virus was first discoverd in March of this year. The reason you have multiple infections is probably due to the fact that Dorkbot opened a backdoor and let these other infections in...

My advice is to buy Norton and let it try to remove prior to deleting anymore partitions on friends drives!

Just to update again. After the blue screen, it tried to install a "fake" copy of windows 7. When i went to type in my key it said it was an invalid key. I know it worked before so i restarted and made sure to boot from the dvd drive and actually use my install dvd. Key worked after. This thing is nasty.

If you are installing from windows you are not getting rid of anything... you need to boot off of install media and then delete all partitions. You will probably also have to use something like GParted as suggested previously to make sure you delete any hidden/infected partitions!

And you need a valid copy of Win7! We dont support non authentic hacked/cracked/pirated copies here! If you cant pay for an authentic copy, then you deserve whatever infections or crapware you get!

You misunderstood what i was saying. I have a valid copy of windows, all 3 of us do. I said "it" as in the virus tried to install a fake windows 7. When i downloaded the bios updater for asus the computer immediately went to the blue screen and shut down. When it rebooted it automatically tried to install a new "fake" copy of windows. I didn't think anything of it because i did have my friends windows 7 disc was in the computer so i thought it was just booting from the dvd. I had the windows 7 disc in because i was trying to "recover" the windows MBR after hopefully wiping the virus on it. Once i put in my cd key and it wasn't working is when i suspected it was a fake and immediately turned off the computer and booted from the actual windows 7 disc. Once it allowed me to put in my windows key again after installing from the dvd the key worked.

More or less something caused the pc to try and install a "fake" copy of windows and when their windows key did not work is when i realized it because i personally installed their windows 7 originally 2 months ago with their key and it worked. I personally downloaded the home version when it was on sale for being a college student. My friends bought the windows 7 family pack version about 2 months ago (only have installed it on 2 pcs so far).
