PostSubject: Virus Help    Tue Feb 22, 2011 3:39 pm

This virus has me stumped. I tried manually finding it, to no avail. I booted up my cpu in safe mode and scanned it with my anti-virus software, and it could not find it. I uninstalled all of my extra programs because it appears my drivers were fine. That didn't work either. I tried to run in safe mode with networking, and downloaded an antivirus software, but it can't run in safe mode. However, the virus makes it so I can't run these kinds of programs in normal mode. Idk what to do help me please.

How do you know its a virus? What's happening in detail to your computer?

Since when are you having this problem?

What AV are you using?

Are the virus definitions of your AV completely up to date?

Until we can ascertain the situation, I recommend the following: if you have any data which is important on that computer, get it out of there fast in CD or USB, but tread very carefully before attempting to read it on another system.

If its a rootkit or similar worst case scenario we are dealing with here, you might have to reinstall the operating system and/ or format your drives. That means everything in them goes.

I was using mcafee as my antivirus software. I'm sure it was updated because I just got it on there. It has to be a v irus because its rogue AV. I'm not sure what a rootkits is but I'm sure its a virus. When I boot up in normal mode, it shows my background image I have for my desktop but soon changes to a blue screen with a msg the programmer wanted me to see. It then says I have infections and a certain file is corrupted. It starts "scanning" my cpu and keeps reminding me with incessant popups that my system is infected. It wants me to dl some stuff and pay them. This program won't run in safe mode, but not much does.

Rootkits are some of the toughest malware you can get on your system. Some of them can prove impossible to remove conventionally.

Quote :
A rootkit is software that enables continued privileged access to a computer while actively hiding its presence from administrators by subverting standard operating system functionality or other applications.


Wait a second... when did you install this mcafee anti virus? Right before or after the *** hit the fan?

Lol i googled rootkits right after posting. Went to the same exact source from where you got that paragraph. Anyway, no, I've had McAfee for a few months now. I'm pretty sure it's not a rootkit, except it is particularly difficult to find.

Didnt you say:

Could this be malware posing as AV? Because if so there are tools to remove it.

I recommend the following response: 1. As I mentioned, back up your important data if at all possible. Do it from safe mode if necessary, but be aware there is a chance the virus may be copied there. However, the media can later be desinfected.

2. Buy a good AV ASAP. Karspersky or Norton.

3. Post the exact message you are getting.

Ok I called Toshiba and they helped me reboot my system, for free! I love those guys! Anyway, my computer is in its factory state and I am reinstalling yuris now. I will not be able to play until I get all my networking and security situation fixed, however. So sit tight. I lost all my map files so I will need you to email them to me War when you get the chance.
