It may be hiding in System Restore.

Hi,

Anything in the system restore cannot reinstate it;s self,

You have to do a manual system restore to get infected again,

The best way is to leave your system restore points installed until your computer is running OK,

Any restore point is better than none {even a infected one}

Major problems guys.

I installed SAS Superantispyware, Did an update.

Rebooted, and went safe mode and did a test.

Memory items = 0 detected
Registry items = 0 detected
File items = 100K scanned 114 items detected.

So i followed the process and deleted, it asked for a reboot, and now i have a black screen after login, all i can do is CTRL ALT delete. No desktop or start menu is appearing. I am posting here by luck that i can run firefox by CTRL ALT delete.

Hi,

Try restarting in safe mode if possible then open SAS look in Manage Quarantine try restore,

Also in SAS preferences click on repairs is there anything there what will help,
