Think I might have downloaded this by accident when trying to view a video, I know, I'm a dumbass, and I'm usually pretty well behaved. When I goto most webpages and even the windows explorer I get a Critical System Error saying that i'm infected by Worm.Win32.Sober and that I need to click ok to download IEDefender, which I know is a load of crap. I've tried many diffrent things through norton and tried the IEDefender removal steps on this site, and I still have it. HELP ME PLEASE!!!! :thumbsup:

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer.
You ran this tutorial?
How to remove IE Defender (Removal Instructions)
If so reopen it and use the the directions for manual fix. See FixIED.reg run it from Safe Mode and delete the files.

I did run that tutorial and none of those files were in the folder at all. Moslty every time I goto a web page that critical error message pops up wanting me to download IEDefender. Now trying Ad-Aware to see if it can find anything. This is very anoying, never had anything this deep before. This is my office PC and everytime I goto open a document I get the message. My Symantec AntiVirus keeps blocking Downloader, but says it is only partially removing it. When I goto Symantec website it tells me to disable System restore, restart in safe mode, run a scan, delete infected files, restart normally and then delete all Temp Internet files. When I run the scan in safe mode it finds no infected files and deleting the temp files does nothing. PLEASE HELP!!!!
These are where Symantec is picking up the infected files:
C:\Documents and Settings\jat\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\KAOCRTAT\
C:\Documents and Settings\jat\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\UKRYDKCO\
C:\Documents and Settings\jat\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\6WE9EK12\

Spybo also finds nothing. Can I get rid of it if I restore to an old restore point?

If there are no more problems or signs of infection, you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "OK".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
