post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok, well I'm cleaning a mates computer, and found this mofo, VirTool:Win32/VBInject.gen!DO

I seem to have in under control for now, it was just refreshing its self constantly, MSE just kep on removing it, but it just kept coming back
But currently I think MSE has it under quarantine, and I need your guys help too track down this virus, I have used Malwarebytes, that seems to cant find anything else, I am also scanning for root kits.

Windows 7 system.

I know this might not be a quick fix..but I tend to go ahead and reinstall Windows when disaster strikes.

Generally the first action would be to do a System Restore to an earlier point before your computer was infected. This may or may not be feasible in your case if you have had the virus for awhile.

MSE and Malwarebytes are a good combination. Additionally you should delete all the temporary files and folders where many viruses hang out. For Windows 7 these include:

C:\\Users\\{Username}\\AppData\\Local\\Temp;
C:\\Users\\{username}\\AppData\\Local\\Microsoft\\ Windows\\Temporary Internet Files; and
C:\\Windows\\Temp.

A few days ago I wrote an article on this subject that might be of help also:
http://www.windows7inthenews.com/201...quick-and.html

Interestingly I have recently cleaned 3 computers in the UK of a rootkit virus of the TDSS variant. I suggest you also run the free removal tool for this one -- it won't do any harm if it finds nothing and only takes about a minute to run.

A Google search on your specifc virus will lead you to manual removal instructions but hopefully it doesn't come to that.

Report back if you still have problems.
