  1. Guys,
    Suffering from Darksma. Got downloaded from a sports site a few weeks back and o boy, is that some pain.

    I saw some previous posts about this virus on thi forum and am hoping somebody could help me with kicking this thing out of my laptop.

    Thanks
    Raj

    Uninstall your McAfee
    Then run the McAfee Removal Tool

    Uninstall Symantec (Norton)
    Run the Norton Removal tool

    Uninstall Spyware Doctor
    Uninstall SuperAntiSpyware

    Restart

    Run Startup Control Panel and remove any not required startups: (should be most!)

    Install Avira

    Run CCleaner again
    Restart

    Start up Malwarebytes again; Update it; then run a full scan (remove all found Malwares)
    You need to run this multiple times, until all hidden Malwares are uncovered and removed

    There you go ;)
