How can I get rid of this nasty virus? - Page 2

post #11 of 85
Run Malwarebytes and Combofix. That will get rid of pretty much anything. Combofix will get rid of those pita rootkits malwarebytes wont.

Combofix

If they dont work, you can always do windows repair on windows xp with the xp cd. If you need help with that just pm me.

I'm not quite sure on the Linux approach, and I don't want to give false advice.

And Norton is the best... at installing bloatware and utter failure.

do not reformat!

Have you tired Kaspersky?

man I accidently closed this tab and had a hard time finding it lol

Kaspersky did the trick for removing Viruses that would reapper at bootup.

Had a bad case that only kept adding more viruses before,..

Also, @ above poster, can you install Ubuntu Linux on another partition and access the folders from your windows partition? If so, that could be an option. I hope Ubuntu is under 20GB though since that is all they have.
Norton is an Antivirus. A rootkit isn't a virus. Malwarebytes is best for this kind of job because a virus wreaks havoc on files. Norton is the best antivirus.

You'll probably save more time by reformatting the computer than trying to remove the difficult virus.

There is some truth to that I guess.

The reason I don't like norton is that it slows down your PS tbh. At least it did 2-3 years ago when my parents had it on our home computer. I noticed that my OS was significantly faster without norton installed.

Norton may be decent, but I'm sure there are a lot of free options which are a lot better than norton.

Dug this up, you can at the least get a better idea of what you're dealing with if you don't want to format.

Run combofix, trust me. That crappy antivirus software will not help you. If that does not work you need to run a windows repair with the windows xp disk. I promise you, one of those will fix it and you will have all of you data with no rootkits. I was a network consultant for 3 years and you wouldnt believe the amount of viruses we had to deal with. Just do what I suggested and save yourself some time.

Edit: hitman pro is another good backup for rootkits but I dont think they give you the 1 free scan anymore.
