Default ESET 4.0 hijacked


Something got in and hijacked my ESET security suite and basically took
over my entire computer. Almost all of my drivers are disabled and it
has control of pretty much every file. I used hijack to find the files,
and I notice the registry changes. It wont even let me run a virus scan
in safe mode. I was looking at the registry and although normally I
wouldn't go near it, I am just erasing the changes that were given to
the keys. Then I will try to run a virus scan again. What else can I do
to make sure everything is out? I have the scan logs as well, I just
wasn't sure where to put them. Thanks

Oh, and I am running Vista x64 home premium on an HPa6720f and I
thought I had virus protection from ESET, but you can see how that went.

Well if it's as bad as you say then I would completely wipe the machine and
re-install. I think that would be the fastest and safest way you would then
know you are starting with a clean machine.

I tried doing that already, but since it disabled all of my drivers the
menu at the start says I don't have any drivers installed.

Huh? Do you know what it means to completely wipe the machine? Reformat and do a
clean install
