Win 7 Internet Security 2011 malware help!!!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I basically have this happening that is explained by bleepingcomputer

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/down...s-anti-malware


Quote:
When installed, this rogue pretends to be an update for Windows installed via Automatic Updates. It will then install itself as a single executable called AV.exe that uses very aggressive techniques to make it so that you cannot remove it. First, it makes it so that if you launch any executable it instead launches XP Security Tool 2010, XP Defender Pro, or Vista Defender Pro. If the original program that you wanted to launch is deemed safe by the rogue, it will then launch it as well. This allows the rogue to determine what executables it wants to allow you to run in order to protect itself. It will also modify certain keys so that when you launch FireFox or Internet Explorer it will launch the rogue instead and display a fake firewall warning. Last, but not least, when tryn to browse to a web site, it will hijack your browser and state that the site is a security risk and not allow you to visit it.
I don't halve malwarebytes antivirus on the computer so I downloaded it on my laptop and transferred it over after installing it by usb. Problem is when I click on the malwarebytes icon to open it, it will open up Avast and ask me to open it in a sandbox. I agree and then nothing. If I do it again and choose to open it up normally instead of in a sandbox the same thing happens. Can anyone help me get this solved? I have Windows 7 by the way. Is there something I am doing wrong? I have admin privledges.

I'm running avast again to see if it finds this rogue virus but I doubt it will. I am trying to do this in regular windows and not in safe mode. Could that be the issue?

when I try to start it in safe mode it says "run time error 0" and then a second error message says run-time error 440

edit: had to reinstall it again in safe mode. it's running now....
