    MS Removal Post Failures - Need urgent help


    Hi!
    First of all, thanks for reading!
    My computer was infected two days ago with the Ms Removal virus/malware. I could not use windows (Vista) cause it restarted itself after one minute every time. I searched out for information and downloaded the Rkill tool for stoping it, however, each time that tried to run it (even in safe mode) I got the blue screen error reporting some memory problems, and my pc got restarted. I even tried it with the name changed, and several different downloads. Nothing. Restarted every time with the same error.
    At the end, I run a full scan of Anti Malware bytes in safe mode and it appearently removed it. BUT... now I got many new problems... First, the whole PC seems like it is running a little weird, slowing down things, getting stuck and such. I cannot use IE8, cause every time I open a new tab it gets stucked and the whole machine gets too. Even Firefox wont come up sometimes and I end up having to click the icon like four times in order to open it. And, like 20 minutes ago, I got the blue screen error again, restarting my pc twice (the memory dump one).
    What should I do? Is some part of the virus still with me?
    Hope I described the problem correctly..

    The safest course is to wipe the disk, reinstall windows, then carefully recover your backups, making sure you don't restore an infected backup file.
