One day, I was in the mood to play Grand Theft Auto. Problem is, I don't have it. So I decided to "legally" dowload it.
Link is here: hxxp: //thepiratebay.org/torrent/4277087/Gr...uto_San_Andreas
BTW Don't dowload it XD
As you can see, people were not too happy after downloading it. Unforunatley, these comments appeared AFTER I dowloaded it. When I saw the comments, my eyes went wide and I slowly dragged the torrent to the trash can and delete it.
Problem solved, right?
A couple weeks later my Peerguardian dissapeared and I started getting these messages that read:
Windows will now Shut Down and restart. This was activated by: NT AUTHORITY/SYSTEM
Then a clock starts counting down from 1 minute and it restarts. I can't close it. I tried to open task manager but another message appeared:
Task manager has been disabled
After a couple Ad-Aware and Spybot scans, I decided to use my Ace in the hole: System Restore.
I've used it before so I knew what I was doing. I was relived.
Until I found out it was still there.
Now I was mad.
I tried using Regedit but...
Registry Editing has been disabled
This is actually good news. Now I know where this virus is hiding.
So next I did another Ad-Aware scan. After I deleted everthing, I tried using Regedit.
But now what do I do
I closed it and tryed to open it back up.
So NOW I'm using Malwarebytes to get rid of it (as said in the comments).
But still, no dice.
