  1. Thank you so much for the tip, my friend! I was seriously freaking out. Thanks again

  2. ComboFix to the rescue! I tried several anti-malware programs (Spybot, AVG 2011, Emsisoft Antimalware, and Malwarebytes to no avail. My computer was having so many problems and wasn’t wanting to boot, so I downloaded (from another computer) HDD Regenerator on a USB stick, plugged it into my computer, hit F9 while booting, changed my boot drive to USB KEY, and ran HDD Regenerator. When it was finished, I could boot into Safe Mode and run ComboFix (which I also downloaded to my USB stick). Had to have all anti-virus programs turned off so I could run ComboFix (even though I had uninstalled one of the anti-malware programs, ComboFix said it was running, but there was an option to go ahead anyway AT YOUR OWN RISK, which I did). When it was finished running, it restarted my computer and everything works great! Love you COMBOFIX!! You’re the best!

  3. I cannot find the file that you type into the search bar when you enter “Xc” all I get is xcopy. How can I get around this? Can I just delete system 32 all together? Thanks!

  4. Kayla: right-click on the shortcut on the desktop. The NAME changes each time.
    Under no conditions delete whole system32 – it would make your PC unusable.

  5. I right click on the desktop icon, go to properties and then go to the file location. From there I know in the video you search of Xc, so are you saying the name of the application that I am supposed to be renaming and then deleting changes? I don’t mean to be difficult, but just cannot locate the XcYH0… file that is in the video.

  6. The location for the file is always the same. I looked up the name in the properties box (not the location), so I knew for which file to search. In your case it is different than Xc.

  7. I have been fighting the AV Guard virus for a few days now, and I keep having the same problem. Any spyware/malware/antivirus I download will install, but none of them will run. Spyware Doctor opens, but freezes. Malwarebytes runs for about 10 seconds, then just closes. It doesn’t matter if I’m in safe mode or normal mode. What am I missing? Dell Laptop 1545 Windows Vista 32 bit service pack 2. Thanks!

  8. I didn’t try it yet from a bootable CD, but so far TDSS killer only found 2 infected items which were quarantined. It didn’t seem to make a difference, and now TDSS killer doesn’t work either. Doesn’t matter if I change file name of any of the .exe files, the programs still won’t work? Will try bootable CD shortly….

  9. Dom: TDSS Killer is against a special set of malware, where there are only 1-2 infected items, but it messes with other stuff and stops anti-malware programs from launching. So if it deleted 2 items, great, there should not be more. Investigate which 2 items got fixed, sometimes it has to delete some malicious file, but it can’t replace it automatically.

  10. unfortunately i paid $72.86 for this fake antivirus ..and my laptop get hanged …so any suggestions to get rid off from this antivirus
