I have been having trouble with my computer. I got infected by a Trojan called EXPLORER.exe and wsctf.exe through my jump drive. Every time i delete both registry keys after scanning with MAlwarebytes, they reappear as soon as I restart the computer. I looked at my userinit registry key and it contains "userinit.exe and EXPLORER.exe" when i try removing EXPLORER.exe it comes right back. I have scanned with Malwarebytes while in safe mode and also with Ad Aware. Any help will be greatly appreciated

Hi,
The Ultimate boot CD should be able to help you.

1. Go to the UBCD site and read all about it then download the program used to make an Ultimate Boot CD.
2. Run the program and make a Boot CD from the ISO.
3. Use that CD to boot your computer.
4. Before you run any other program in UBCD, run a virus scan and malwarebytes to remove all viruses that hide or can not be removed when Windows is running.
5. You can then use other programs included on the CD to check your computer.
An Ultimate Boot CD for Windows is a bootable recovery CD that contains software used for repairing, restoring, or diagnosing almost any computer problem. Use the link below to download a customized ISO file of the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows. A CD-ROM created from this ISO file will be a bootable disk containing a myriad of diagnostics and utilities. The software contained on the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows is either freeware or has been designed "for personal use only". Check the site for all the different software that is included on the CD and if necessary, instructions on how to use that software. Assuming there is no hardware problem with your computer, you will be able to go on-line and update any program or locate other software (drivers etc)
Click here for the official Ultimate Boot CD for Windows website: http://www.ubcd4win.com/
If you don’t know how to burn a CD with an ISO file, check the site, there are detailed instructions there on using several different burning programs.

Hi again,
Just looking at you log again, I would recommend that you go into msconfig and disable a lot of the programs that start up on boot and windows start as they must be slowing down the boot up and running of your machine.
