OK - I'm assuming you have access to another PC as have managed to post here. Finding little info (in English anyhow) on the process "zapusk.exe", which is not always a good sign.

Firstly, download Ad-Aware and MalwareBytes, and transfer to a flash drive.

Reboot in Safe Mode - usually tapping the F8 key before Windows boot logo comes up. Once in safe mode install both Ad-Aware and MalwareBytes, and scan with both, one at a time. If you have to re-boot at any point, REBOOT BACK INTO SAFE MODE.

Now, after running and cleaning with both, you may have to reset your desktop properties, but should run fine after that. Once you've done all that, then you can boot as normal.

Let us know if still facing problems :)

If you are still having grief d/load Combofix.exe rename it to anything you want then boot into safe mode and run it. Make you anti-virus is turned off first though.

Neither nortons or avg will find this type of malware. it is not normally classed as a virus/trojan.

Reboot your PC and press F8, choose safe mode, and kill the virus file and process, then clear your registry, reboot again, that's all

Norton = Bloatware (Symantec make great corporate AV suites, but lousy home suites) and AVG is the finest example of AV Crapware I've ever encountered.

For removal, look to tools I listed. If after free AV, look to Avira, Comodo, Nod32 etc. Microsoft's new free offering also getting some pretty solid reviews (unlike OneCare).

Have a look here for a few comparisons

Have you followed advice to try dealing with problem in safe mode, as probably gives best chance at being able to load up without this invader so that you can actually get rid of it.

when i boot in safe mode... my computer suddenly restart itself.... any idea???

OK, before I throw a last option (will depending on your skill level, will decided whether we go recover and reinstall, or attempt a repair)... are you able to boot from a DVD, and can you enter the BIOS??

The BIOS, as your laptop may not yet be set to boot from DVD yet (boot from DVD needs to be set as first option, before the actual HDD). Booting from DVD will basically decide if we can go any further without either replacing the entire HDD or taking in for repairs :(

OK - from that I'd say we're looking a well embedded form of malware, so that combined with what I sense are your own limitations (please don't take offence at that), I'm going to steer away from the Linux repair option... it does take a fair amount of expertise and in-depth knowledge to run, or things can be made worse.

Now seeing as you are able to boot from DVD, and obviously have a working machine - seeing as you're posting here - the first option is to DL a Linux Live disc on your working machine (suggest Knoppix for size reasons, as well as decent driver support), burn to disk, and boot from that disk. So long as you have an external HDD, you can then transfer files across.

BUT - my concern with this method is that given the way this piece of malware has embedded itself, my serious concern is that some of the files you transfer across may well be infected. If Windows was even semi-functional, I would suggest installing TrueCrypt (even portable version) and locking those files in a secure vault till can be safely scanned. Problem is, TrueCrypt still relies on command-prompt for Linux, so that goes out the window.

Now as a preferred option, I'm actually steer you in the direction of a solution which may get my @rse kicked, but will try and explain so any mods hopefully will understand why this is actually the best option :S

My preference actually goes to a new build of the underground Windows XP Live boot-disk, this one incorporating Kapersky 2009. Now you would need to install a bittorrent client (uTorrent) on the working machine, then click on link, opening with uTorrent if not automatically doing so. Once DL'ed, burn off, and boot from said disk.

Now the reason I actually BY FAR prefer this option is for two reasons:

  • Because it includes a new WINDOWS-SPECIFIC AV build, you may actually have a chance of stripping the infection from your installed Windows build, even if only to the point where you can actually properly boot and fully clean out.
  • Even if it can't effectively get your installed OS up and running, it should at least be able to clean any files you need to copy to external drive, minimising any risk of spreading infection.

Obviously am NOT advocating software privacy (this build is actually no use as a local install anyhow), but in your case it does actually seem to provide the best chance of either repairing your OS, or at least safely recovering files - without also recovering the malware along with it - before a fresh install.
