I have a strain of this at the moment. Absolutely ludicrous virus. Ive run 4 different anti virus/anti spyware software and it cant get rid of it. I manually deleted some of the files which started the program (if the program started, it wouldnt let you open task manager, explorer, or any program that would help shut it down) but its still effecting the internet, changing any site I click on after a search in google to some shitty advert sites.Right now, ive got an absolute b*tch of a virus called Antivirus XP 2008.
You've probably heard of it, its systematically dismantling my computer as we speak.
Its taken me hours to actually get on the bloody internet, since i'd have to restart and restart over and over again because it would freeze every time.
Im searching google, the problem is, the virus wont let me on any site that might help get rid of it.
Whenever i go to the "Search" function, it restarts the computer.
Im in a huge mess right now, i didnt even do anything, it just randomly installed about 3 hours ago.
Im running Malwarebytes right now, that apparantley does the trick, but im concerned it wont.
Could anybody help me with this? Its a royal pain in the ass.
did you run malwarebytes in safe mode? failing that, have you tried 'hijack this' or ccleaner?malwarebytes fixed the majority of it and deleted 32 infected files (others could only find 2-6 infected files and couldnt delete them), but I still have the issue of google search results being hijacked, which is most annoying.
Mobbenfuhrer = LEGEND!When you reboot your computer, stand right over it and wait for the very second your desktop appears. Slam your mouse into malwarebytes as fast as you can ...
