PostSubject: virus   Wed 20 Jan 2010, 17:47

got a fecking virus/ malware on my gaming rig . it won't let me get onto internet to try to find something to get rid of it. i ran spy bot, avast, a squared (all on hard drive), and none of them get rid of it., i had to run those programs from safemode. Tried to get online from safe mode with networking but no go. any suggestions?

without internet access, even on another comp theres little you can do but wipe in my experience, however if you can get access or know someone who does, get a usb memory stick/pen drive or w/e and download Trojan remover and give that a go, its a trial unless you buy it but still works.

Unfortunatly without more info on the actual virus ( exe name etc) i cant really recommend much more than you've already tried, except maybe malware bytes.


Also has it killed you internet 100% or just to certain sites ( you got on here somehow afterall) also what symptoms are you getting ( popups and so on) the more info you give the more we can narrow things dawn, a hijack this log might help too if you have it

sometimes i can get online, but then it pops up and won't let me do anything else
if i'm quick on the startup i can get task manager opened up before the virus takes over

That's probably the best you can do mate, without actually knowing which specific virus you have its hard to recommend a specific tool to use to remove it.

I am assuming it is only hijacking your system when you go online? If so you should be able to load up progs like trojan remover/ Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (free)/ SUPERAntiSpyware (free) and AVG (free) onto your system from a USB drive and run them without going online to try and track the little fecker down and kill it.

This should be a timely reminder to all to back up your gaming profiles on a regular basis gents, this may end up as a complete HD wipe if none of the tools fix it or we can't find a work around.
