I've been redirected here from the vista and security forums

I have read the start instructions but am unable to follow them because of the following -

When I boot up windows vista opens

After a few seconds notifications open from Vista Security warning me of impending cataclysms

I can shut them but they re open.

I can press ctrl + alt + del and get the task manager and i can stop the notifications by stopping xyo.exe

at the same time as the security notices start a window opens saying that windows explorer is closing down, the screen flickers, goes blank, then it says windows restarting, the screen flickers

this continues every 15 seconds thereafter

if i attempt to run a program nothing happens

if i hit the vista thing in the left hand corner the menu comes up, but nothing works on it -

also a large panel opens up informing me that i should go to the CyberLink website to get help with the Cyberlink demultiplexer codec. It offers a number of options and advice - one of which allows the add/remove software menu to be brought up and i can remove software if i wish - but i cannot access the internet to visit their site or any other site

i cannot use the find bar because it shuts down every fifteen seconds when windows restarts

I cannot get any folder or drive to open up in windows explorere even for the few seconds between it opening and closing

Try this.

Download this Rkill tools to a flash drive or CD using a good computer.

Place the files on the desktop of the infected computer anr run of them.

There are 3 different versions. If one of them won't run then try to run the other one.
Vista and Win7 users need to right click and choose Run as Admin
You only need to get one of them to run, not all of them.


If you can please download and run this DDS Scanning Tool. Nothing will be deleted. It will just give me some additional information about your system.

Download DDS and save it to your desktop from here or here.
Disable any script blocker, and then double click dds.scr to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt
  • Save both reports to your desktop.

Please just paste the contents of the DDS.txt log in your next post.

Wait for further instructions.
