    OK, we'll need a bit more information.

    When you say "won't run vista" do you mean it will only boot in safe mode? What happens when you try to start the computer normally? Post the exact text of any error messages you get.
    Also, please post the name of the file Malwarebytes removes (or better yet, the Malwarebytes scan log output)
    Have you tried re-running Malwarebytes? If so, does it again find and remove the exact same file? (a sure sign it's not completely removing the infection)

        Do the removal instructions you'd linked to not work, then?

            "can't get on internet" - did you run safe mode with networking or just safe mode?

            you may have more than one virus, but here is a "guide" to remove the one you mentioned.

              Digital protection should be removable with the latest version of Malwarebytes. Grab the latest version on a different pc, throw it on a CD or flash drive and install it from safe mode.


              Also I know from experience that combofix will remove it, but I don't recommended it for general use, as usually it will fubar your .exe association after removal and require a registry fix. It's also not x64.

                        This solution relies completely on you being able to get on to the internet in safe mode so ignore it if you cant.
                        Make sure and back up any important files before doing anything.

                        1. Hit F8 at start and choose safe mode with networking.
                        2. Turn off system restore so the virus cannot reinstall itself from there.
                        3. Go [http://www.eset.com/online-scanner]here[/url] and scan your system. Make sure you choose to scan your entire computer and choose all scanning options.
                        4. Once finished, you might try bitdefender's online scanner as well.
                        5. If the system is cleaned, make sure and turn back on system restore.

                        I hope this helps.
