Thanks for the tip. I will check it out in 5. I still have this stinkin Trovi. I reinstalled Chrome becuz it plays best with FB games and there it was. I'm currently backing up the pc and I'm just going to do a reinstall of windows. You see how confused I get so I think this is my best option. Incredible that I picked this up by trying to download the right memory test thingy. How's that for ironic. smh

Always the best choice if you stick with the steps, tools and methods in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Those who do only stop back in to rave about their results and help others. Those who don't we see with problems regularly here. This is because the tutorial compiles everything that works best to the exclusion of what to avoid

Speaking of memory test thing, I bought a new video card and a bigger power supply (since my 350 couldn't support the new card) and no more black screen.

Whoa ... those are some steps! ... ok lol

Do I need to copy over the App Data folder to put back on the clean install?

Thanks

No, avoid AppData which is a corruption path.

Possibly your Windows disk/image is corrupted with the malware, or there's a possibility that you have a rootkit, which can survive a clean install in some instances. Did you make the Windows disk/image on a clean PC? If you made it on the infected one, the image could become corrupted.

It also wouldn't hurt to run TDSSKiller just to be sure.

When running TDSSKiller, launch the program, click on the blue text "Change Parameters" & check the box marked "Detect TDLFS File system." Click OK & then run the scan.

I've begun the process.

Last night after a clean install when I looked in the C drive it had items in there that have been long deleted. I never got a chance to put anything back on the pc so, I'm really confused about this.

Back to the tutorial. Thanks. I'm actually following along for now lol

Hi Borg. Continue with removal guide first? .. I do not know what you mean by "Did you make the Windows disk/image on a clean PC?" I stick the windows disk in the drive and we're on our way.
