After spending ( as my son informed me) some 22 hrs trying to clean his machine of trojan DNS Changer I have come to the informed decision that it cannot be removed.
My last research was done during the last 56 minutes wherby I just searched the web for any article of an actual removal with NO RETURN. There arn't any
There was one person on Geeks.com that claimed that all the published cures had failed but he was able to improvise and manually remove the virus perminently from within the registry ( He did not post or incline to post his method).
Going forward I would like to believe that this fella is perminent!!!. He cannot be removed by any method. All those logs on this site and others just list what the various programs saw but there were not any replies to the effect that " do this or that and it was removed" I have not come across any post anywhere to the effect that it was removed. People covered more than 20 odd programs that were being tried with no success. This fella is big.
I guess that this is one for the moral minority cause I understand that most Porn site viewers were affected ( like myself). At least its a good way to deter the viewing of pornography.
As I said earlier I would be doing a reformat however my fear is " what is to prevent it from returning" it was not fixed in the first place and 20 odd advertised programs could not stop it, what to do next. This is a question for all those anti-virus companies. They got their work cut out. I feel like a loser cause I am the type that even if I am not successful in its removal at least I can learn how it works. I could not seem to find that out. I like most others are completely vunerable to his return. Be talking with you guys again :thumbsup:
