Virus or Hijacker problem

by jbeck918 / March 16, 2013 3:17 AM PDT

Someone downloaded ilivid,now can't start Windows unless I use recovery. When windows starts and I delete ilivid, and run Malwarebytes, and Superantispyware,and it finds a few items, deletes them, and tells me to restart. When I restart, the whole process starts over again,need to restore to earlier time again and all is back.

Thanks Bob for answering.. I always back up my important things to flash drive(s). I have run Malwarebytes and superanti spyware, but will try rkill and try again. Always good to find you and Grif on when I need help.
