also, i believe partition 3 is that of a previous unbuntu installation that i had run alongside windows a while back that had not been deleted after i uninstalled it, so no worries there i hope

i found several restore points in the repair mode, would using one of these work to get rid of the virus? there are several before i started having issues

Need to take a good look at the FRST report. The laptop is a Toshiba, and they have a unique configuration.

In the meantime, do the following:

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit:
Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit
Save to the Desktop (easy to find)

Right-click the file and select: Extract here...
Follow ithe Usage instructions on the website from Step 3 to Step 7.
For now, please stop at Step 7.

When the program is done, two reports are created in the mbar folder:
1. system-log.txt
2. mbar-log-2013-02-18 (20-13-32).txt (corresponds to mbar-log-year-month-day (hour-minute-second).txt)

Please provide the mbar-log containing information on what was detected and removed.

On Partition 3...

Toshiba machines have a recovery partition recognized as type 17.
Partition ### Type Size Offset
Partition 3 Primary 15 GB 581 GB

==========================================================
Disk: 0
Partition 3
Type : 17 (Suspicious Type)
Hidden: Yes
Active: No

There is no volume associated with this partition.

This is legit.

Can you do the following...

After you download MBAR to the Desktop and extract it, right-click the mbar folder that is created, and select: Properties

In the General tab, look at location. It should read:
C:\Users\xxxx\Desktop (where xxxx = your name)

Next, right-click the Command Prompt, and select: Run as Administrator

At the blinking prompt of the Command Prompt, copy/paste the following:
C:\Users\xxxx\Desktop\mbar\mbar.exe (where xxxx = your name)

Does this start MBAR for you?

If can't do, reboot, and select the following from the Advanced Boot Options:
Safe mode with command prompt

Try to run it from:
C:\Users\xxxx\Desktop\mbar\mbar.exe (where xxxx = your name)

If still no-go, then use the USB drive, and change the path:
X:\mbar\mbar.exe (where X = letter of the USB drive)
