I'm attempting to remove Malware with the info from MajorGeeks.com instructions.
Within the Windows XP Cleaning Procedure are the following instructions;
Downloading Tools - to include:
a) SUPER AntiSpyware,
SpyBot Search & Destroy,
c) Malwarebytes Anti-Malware,
Problem #1: When I download d), combofix.exe., I get the following warning from my AVG Anti Virus...
"Potentially harmful program".
From: "conbofix.exe - HIDEEXEC.EV".
AVG asks if I should ignore, delete, or...?
When I chose to delete, the file did not do a complete download.
When I chose to ignore, the download completed.
Has my system been compromised?
Problem #2: I cannot download MGtools. The site continues to ask for username and password. Although I have registered, the site does not acknowledge either. Is this available at another site?
Problem #3: Reading the notes for combo fix, page 2, it states..."You should now install the Windows Recovery Console. The Windows recovery console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery mode that allows us to help you in the case that your computer has a problem after an attempted removal of malware. If you use WINDOWS XP and have the Windows CD, (which I have), then you can follow the instructions found in the tutorial listed below."
I do see the "If you use Windows XP and do not have the Windows CD", this can be downloaded from Microsoft. To install the Windows Recovery Console when you do not have the Windows XP CD, please follow these instructions.
No where in these notes do I find what to do if I have the Windows XP CD...?
Have I missed something?
What am I to do here?
Mesay...to you, many thanks
