  1. Gustavo: Reboot into safe mode with networking and launch program from there. If it fails, try launching from safe mode, or use other tools : Malwarebytes, Hitman pro.

  2. I got this pop up saying I had a windows update ready to install. It was this Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool. I started to download it but stopped after it after about 10% complete. I read about the fake MSRT and didn’t want to take any chances. My question is if it is a backdoor trojan virus do you have to download the whole thing to get infected? If I stopped the download and exited out would I still get the trojan virus?

  3. This was disguised as a Java update…
    I knew this was strange, so I clicked on it, and then this rogue fake anti-viral application came up asking to make changes to my computer, immediately I said no, and looked it up because I had never installed such a thing and it didn’t come with any pack of programs I had downloaded, the downloaders of this problem are my sister and father who know nothing about this type of thing…

  4. I just recovered from it by manually removing it. All you have to do is

    1-Restart your computer.

    2-press “F12” or whatever button your DOS program tells you to press to bring you to windows boot options.

    4-choose to load from your hard drive. (it will have your model number and all that jargan of your hard drive displayed) It should be listed at the very top of the boot options menu.

    5-you will be given some options on how to load windows pick “advanced options”
    to do this on my computer I needed to press F8 that might be a different button on yours

    6-once you are to the advanced options menu choose “safe Mode” Without internet

    7-once you have logged in onto windows “safe Mode” Right click anywhere on your computer screen where there is no icon or tool bar and it will display a set of options

    8-choose to open the “system task manager”

    9-click the “application Tab”

    NOTE: These next few steps have to be repeated until you find the location of your virus.

    10- right click one the first application and choose the “open file location” button.

    11-you should look at the date and time each of these programs were created. It will display that for you automatically. if its around the time when you noticed your computer being infected there is a good chance that is the virus. You might even see an icon associated with the files that you are viewing that will look like the same icon that is used for the malicious software.

    12-Delete the virus

    13 run “system restore” to get there you:

    A-press Start Menu Tab
    B-Press “All Programs”
    C-open “Accessories” folder
    D-open “system Tools” folder
    E-click on “system restore” icon
    F-follow the instructions to restore your computer to an earlier time

    It sounds like a lot but its actually pretty easy and you will be virus free.

  5. P.S. sometimes these viruses will disguise themselves as windows system files so it very important to look at the date they were created. If your windows program was installed 2 years ago and there is a system file that was created the time that the virus was appeared its a dead give away that this is not a real system file and it should be deleted.

    The last time I had got this virus was a couple of years ago and it was disguised as a system folder. This time it prompted as a java update. When I went to close the window it would pop back open again. I think this is when it was downloading itself to my computer.

    When I went through the task manager after right clicking on one of the applications and choosing “open file location” I could see the icon that was used for the fake malicious software program. I right clicked on the icon and chose “open file location” again. That showed me where the virus was installed. Then I erased the files

  6. I just found this on my hpcq 339wn notebook that i purchased in 2012 it was installed on my laptop on 2010 after removeing it it crashed my windows files I have over 1000 $ in a laptop that has crashed from day 1 of purchases. and.hp keeps asking for more money

  7. Just replace it with regular antivirus. I suggest removing HP bloatware from it as well.
