  1. Ok I followed the Eight Step Topic and this Virus does not allow me to run any anti virus. Even in safe mode which I am in now. It also redirects all google links. It's one of those fake anti viruses.. how am I suppose to get rid of it if I cannot do anything?

    The virus has blocked all of those from installing, even in safe mode. I've tried multiple times. I click the install .exe and nothing ever comes up. I've tried renaming the files and still get nothing.

    Sorry for the double post but I finally got them installed and ran them by renaming them. The Vundo virus is what I have I guess. Here are the logs files, any help is much appreciated.

    Alex, you didn't check the line in Malwarebytes for it to remove and entries it found. so that malware it still there. Superantispyware has a similar entry.
    • Please download TDSSKiller
    • Extract the zipped file to your desktop.
    • Go to Start ->Run. Type/Copy and Paste the following text into the prompt:
      "%userprofile%\Desktop\TDSSKiller.exe" -l C:\report.txt -v
    • This will have the program write a detailed log

    • The screen will resemble this black screen:

      When its work is over, upon detection of malicious services and files the utility prompts for a reboot to complete the disinfection.
    • Click OK.
    • If malicious services or files have been detected, the utility will prompt to reboot the PC in order to complete the disinfection procedure.
    • Please reboot when prompted.
    • After reboot, the driver will delete malicious registry keys and files as well as remove itself from the services list.
      You should get a screen like this:
    • A log file named report.txt should have been created and saved to the root directory (usually C:\report.txt).
    • Follow the prompts and attach the report to your next reply.

    Then Please download ComboFix HERE:
    • With ComboFix, at the download window, please rename it to Combo-Fix(.exe) before downloading it.
    • Please disable all security programs, such as antiviruses, antispywares, and firewalls. Also disable your internet connection.

    Important! Save the renamed download to your desktop.

    • 1.Do not mouse-click Combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

    Please attach the Combofix report and the TDSS report to your next reply.
