i have antimalware doctor too >_<

Unread postby inexplicably me » August 28th, 2010, 1:27 am

so, i've looked on many different sites in hopes of finding a way to solve this problem... and i've come up with nothing. on almost every one of them i've looked at, they suggest PC Tools Spyware/Antivirus. so i went to download it from the pc tools site, and it says, almost automatically, "google chrome could not find pctools.com"... i used a search engine to find the correct site, so it can't just be the wrong url... and i tried on different days, as well, same result. pretty sure that the virus is blocking it...
anyway... finally got it through cnet... but, apparently, PC Tools has to automatically update itself before it will run AT ALL. whenever i click on the shortcut, or the icon in the system tray, a little dialog box pops up saying "new updates are available. run smart update". when i attempt to update, it says "update failed. error downloading the list of updates. try again later." then it suggests i check my internet connection. obviously, the virus is blocking the program from updating, as well.

so... my question is this: how do i stop it from blocking pctools.com? that's all i really care about... v_v" unless you don't think PCtools would clear all of it up..?
any suggestions at all would be greatly appreciated. oh yeah, and if it matters, i have win7 32-bit.
(more information about things i've already done to remove most of it at the bottom)

i deleted all the registry files that the sites suggested... but i think i must have a new strain of the virus (pun, most certainly, intended :3). many of the names of files that AVG has caught (i will most likely be getting NOD32 after this is all cleared up 0.o") were never even mentioned on the sites i looked on...
here's a list of them all: neacrowmxs.exe, xwemorscan.exe, earmxocswn.exe, rfp.exe, 3u79iQG9.sys, WS9eI7.sys, Rfu.exe, Rwejoc.exe, Rwejoa.exe, and Rwejob.exe (sorry for the long list :X just wanted to include them all)...
i also deleted all the temp files that i could... there are only four remaining that are being stubborn. i've tried deleting them in safe mode, as well, but they just came back when i re-booted.
the only signs of me still having the virus: random pop-ups (even on safe sites) that i never had before, and of course the blocking of PCtools' update.

btw, if any of the programs i have on my computer are insecure or all around worthless, let me know, and i will remove them.
