Just kidding, sucks about the computer, are they just wiping everything?
I don't know.
The virus I had replicated itself with every virus scan I ran. Avast took one night to do a boot scan and another night to run a hard drive scan. By the time it was done, the god damned thing had infected like 100 files on the computer. At that point it had gotten to a stage where I could no longer down load anything.
Amlah pointed me to the articles on the registry files and removal of the odd one. The search for the first file took an hour and did not turn up a file that was on my computer. At that point I said fuck it.
I went to do a restore. I used the VAIO recovery wizard and got through the first step only to be told by the computer that it could not find a recovery partition, it then told me to restart the computer. I did. Then I came to the improper windows shut down screen. I could not get past that screen. My recovery disc turned out to be fucked up and not bootable. The boot menu on the Vaio was completely and utterly useless.
Packed it up and sent it to my dad's IT guy. I don't know what he can do but wipe the computer which sucks cause if the recovery disc is truly fucked up, then I am fucked as I have no original software discs cause it was a fucking package deal from Best Buy. I figure worst comes to worse, I take it to Best Buy and let them fix it since they didn't want to give me original software so that I could handle this myself --- fucking assholes. If I had a windows cd, I could have fixed it myself.
