    Oh god don't use Combofix. It can fuck a computer up. Does all sorts of invasive shit. Or at least it did, a year ago. They may have redesigned.

    You're probably good if you react immediately with Malwarebyes, spybot and ad-aware.

    either they redesigned, or you used a "fake" ComboFix. an actual working site and authentic download links are here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

    i've been using ComboFix all last month to remove FakeAlert malware infections off school machines. it does the trick.

    I got hired by a local non-profit to get rid of some spyware one of their employees had picked up.

    It was the nastiest little bug I've ever seen. It was one of those fake antivirus scanners, but it was deep into everything. If you tried to open Internet Explorer, it would instantly close it and open something that looked like IE, but was another part of the virus. If you tried to open task manager, windows explorer, msconfig, a run box, or a command line, it would instantly close them. It completely borked every antivirus and antispyware program I tried to install. For some reason I can't recall, safe mode was useless.

    Eventually, I killed it by opening task manager while windows was still booting up and manually killing the processes as soon as they showed up in the list. After that, I could reinstall the wrecked antivirus programs and go after it normally.

    At the end of it I felt like frigging St. George.

    Yeah my sister got one of those on the laptop somehow and I had to go to localhost and fix a bunch of redirects and shit, so goddamn annoying.

    I remember Spy Sheriff or whatever the hell it's called somehow got on my machine, and that damn near killed the whole PC- thank god for partitions and back-ups

    Oh then some idiot friend of mine managed to get a dialler-type-thing that basically tried to shut down the computer if you didn't click on its fourteen-trillion suspicious links

    There was something so reassuring about being able to go "shutdown -a" and then just patiently eradicating every last trace of it

    Oh, and it had some sort of transparent interface that covered the entire screen so no matter where you clicked, you were interacting with the virus instead of the desktop. By mashing windows+D over and over I managed to right click on a desktop icon and redirect it to open msconfig...which the virus instantly closed.

    At that point, I was sort of afraid to turn around in case the virus was standing behind me in the real world.

    One of the laptops at work got hit with Antivirus Plus and ave.exe at the same time. They'd pop up, I'd kill all processes/calls/apps etc and two hours later they would pop up again

    Turned out the cdrom.sys driver was infected and kept downloading the rogues. If you got problems like this, check your drivers. If one's been recently modified, remove and replace with one from a different computer. Oh and make the new one read only

    my mother's computer got hit with a google redirect virus, it was pretty nasty

    dunno how she went a week without noticing that any google search brought her to entirely different pages

    like I'd search for wikipedia, click the link, and it would take me to some fake anti-virus site

    I had that a while back

    I think it was also just the surface indicator of some much deeper problems; I ended up having to to wipe everything and reinstall XP

    None of my antivirus programs caught it; they'd say I was clean when I clearly wasn't; but from time to time I've heard there are some that take over the antivirus programs and direct them to say everything's fine

    Which is pretty fucking insidious

    MBAM seemed to take care of everything. I have been free of all that shit for what seems like near a decade. I have not seen a BSOD in forever, because I like to think I know what the fuck i am doing.

    But apparently something got through.

    Damn son


    A virus so good you think it's actually got a ghost.

    EDIT: Is the idea that I just had because of this post

    Somewhere out there someone's got it, and it was a goddamn labor of love to craft.

    I "fixed" my father's home office computer this christmas by uninstalling Norton and installing Spybot and AVG

    He had it set to run a full scan of the computer upon every startup and startup therefore took about twenty minutes

    the only problem was he was on the paid version and hadn't paid for his updated virus definitions for about two years

    it was starting up and wasting twenty minutes doing a sweep with that caught nothing at all

    so I installed AVG and got rid of Norton and cleaned up maybe thirty trojans and god knows how many small-time infections

    they acted like I had multiplied the fishes or something when I told them I got the computer started up in three minutes
