April 4, 2011 HellScream *online scanner like safety.live.com from MS make sure that you will save a copy of the logs of the scanner if the scanner didnt manage to remove Thanks Paul May 22, 2011 Dave The newest variants of this are really nasty.
Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted. Anyways in the time I wrote this comment I just did system resort -last known good time and kit worked. I'm still able to run IRC and I can ping websites, but I get 403 errors when trying to go anywhere through a browser. Is the virus still around?
Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop. Well i tried it as last hope to save my PC. RKreport.txt could also be found on your desktop. Click on SCAN button.

permalinkembedsaveparentgive gold[–]ksee14 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago(0 children)Oh yea, for sure. Downloaded Malwarebytes and nothing was found. You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well. UNLESS SPECIFICALLY INSTRUCTED, DO NOT POST THIS LOG.

No offering of reward/compensation for solutions. It really is remarkable how this virus behaves like the computer programming. Fortunately, he came to me before giving out his credit card info, and I solved his problem brilliantly with one fell swoop: I bought him a Mac.
