Its also disabled my firewall, wont let me run AVG and wont let me run any other antispyware that i download.

 

Anyone had it before and know how to get rid?

i tried the suggestions from that site with no results, and as said above i cant download and run antispyware as the virus seems to have disabled it. ill give it a try anyway though.

if you install malwarebytes. locate to the install folder and change mbam.exe to say aaaa.exe it should run as the virus wont detec that it is open.

 

I am not sure if this technique will work on this particular virus but it enabled me to open malwarebytes and do a scan when i had something like this.

Okay, I deal with this or viruses very similar every week at work...

 

1st. Download malware bytes from http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=5756 and save to desktop

Then boot the PC in safe mode, tapping F8, pick safe mode with networking from the advanced boot options.

 

change the file name of mbam.exe to somthing else... try running the file.. if it runs, install MWB and update - do a full scan and it should rid the little annoying person

 

If it fails to run, right click the exe file, click compatibilty and set it to run in compatiblity mode for windows 95, somthimes confuses visues, run then remove infections ;)
