Slow/freezes even in safe mode, found obfuscator virus
I downloaded a file yesterday and was alerted by MSE that it was a threat. I deemed it a false positive after scanning it with both malwarebytes and superantispyware and reading the comments of the download.
Everything was fine until today when out of the blue the computer restarts and has a problem rebooting, giving me a window about terminating a thread, which I did, not thinking too much about it. After this I got a BSOD and everything went wrong. Booting the pc normally, I get a gray screen that sometimes goes back to my normal desktop which is really slow and susceptible to freezes. I managed to get an instance that ran well enough to do full scans, which turned up showing a virus in the file I downloaded. MSE however couldn't delete it to I took matters into my own hands and manually found every instance of the file and deleting it. This didn't fix anything though and since then I've been working in safe mode (which sometimes hiccups for long periods of time), scanning with everything I've got, including TDSSkiller, which found things but didn't help the problems.
I am currently trying msconfig with diagnostic startup.
Really need help and some hard truths on how this can play out :/
