Get you're self into the root mode and flash ROM again, i think the virus has completely taken you down and in order to revive it back you must flash ROM, Try sneaking into this thread of XDA developers "forum.xda-developers.com/wiki/HTC_Evo/ROMs" .

If you have a custom recovery like TWRP or CWM then wile the dalvik cache. If not, use ADB via the terminal on your PC/laptop and use
1su
2cd /data/dalvik-cache
3rm *
4exit

It sounds like a corrupt data file rather than a virus; If you're not rooted then you're pretty much virus proof.
