Hey guys. I just turned on my computer, log in etc and be bombarded with threats from my antivirus (AVG). As far as I can tell it's clearly a virus as I have scanned my computer and it's kinda infected everywhere including my drivers folder and everywhere fricking else. The reasons are saying that it there is a "virus identified Win32/zbot.E Also I am unable to open firefox but I'm using IE right now. Friefox also fails in safe mode, immediately crashing as I click it without opening up. My scan says that pretty much all the mozilla firefox folders are infected for the reason of "Found tracking cookie.(name here) with a variety of different names. I have no idea whats going on or how, the only thing I have downloaded recently is rainmeter which I've uninstalled and cleaned out now along with lots of other crap just in case. I did a system restore however it will only strangely let me restore to yesertoday(it's 1am here) and nowhere else and when I do restore it says nothing was changed etc. Any help for me dudes? I fucking hate technology.

Restart in Safemode - Win+R, "msconfig", Boot tab, minimal boot. Run your virus scans from there, and clean out anything you find.

Get Malwarebytes, too. It will clean out tons of stuff AV misses
