Default Help: "please wait while the connection is being established" virus

Hello, I have this damn white screen saying please wait while the connection is being established.

I can't boot up, no safe mode, no task manager, nothing works? Help please?

Everytime I try to bootup, I get the same thing in normal mode or safe mode.

The Duke

The OS is Windows 7 - 64bit Thanks for the help, I found 10 trojans by scanning the drive as a slave, but it still does the same thing even after removing the trojans.

NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on that particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system

Attached is fixlist.txt
  • Save fixlist.txt to your flash drive.
  • You should now have both fixlist.txt and FRST64.exe on your flash drive.

Now re-enter System Recovery Options.
Run FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.
The tool will make a log on the flashdrive (Fixlog.txt).
Please attach this to your next message. (How to attach)

Now attempt to boot normally.

If you were able to boot successfully, I would recommend going through this thread as it looks like you have multiple infections present: How to Remove Trojan:DOS/Alureon.A
