I've got some sort of virus that gave me the blue screen of death. I rebooted. However it uninstalled my virus software, Bitdefender (which did not catch it to begin with.) I cannot reinstall bitdefender. I cannot restore my machine to an eariler point. No matter which point I choose it says it cannot be restored. I cannot load in Safe Mode... just keeps cycling back to normal windows when I try. I've done two online scans... both hang a few seconds after starting. I tried to install SetOne from MS. WOn't run. I tried to install Spyware Doctor. Won't install. Gets partway and crashes. Installed Windows Defender. Will not open after installing. Ran Windows Malware Removal... hangs after a few seconds. Most of my programs seem to be working so I'm running slow though some seem to be not working properly.
I have installed HIjackthis. It will not run. I get the same error message with some of the others. ".... Hijackthis.exe not a valid win32 application."
I can't even find out what kind of bug I've got. Any help/info would be greatly appreciated.
Windows XP Pro.
