I was fooled by the virus and manually remove all the stuff in the list. Then, I managed to clear the virus from my Windows XP Home computer.

Now, of course, many things won't work because I removed certain drives mentioned in the list. Since I have another Windows XP Home computer, I need the "31 virus" list.

Is any one has the list?

Thanks in advance

:thumbsup: Exactly what 31 viruses list are you referring to?
Did whatever tool you used have a log that was saved?

The "31 virus" was compiled by the "Internet Anivirus Pro" to scare people. They are listed in the first screen you see when you see its pop-up.

I didn't use any software but manually removed all the files and registry entries. And, at last, boot the PC with "safe mode" to remove the last executable. Therefore, I didn't have a log.

The log of the virus removal software will not have these 31 files in there anyway.

Hi I am movng this topic from XP ti the Am I Infected forum for a scan.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.32) and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
If you have a previous version of MBAM, remove it via Add/Remove Programs and download a fresh copy.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

The spyware/virus, the Internet Antivirus Pro, has been removed. I am trying to find the "31 virus found" list to restore those files which I should NOT have removed. Thanks.

Hello,Internet Antivirus Pro is online fraud and a computer parasite. it produced false information. Are you having an issue with your PC that you need to recover files?

Yes, I need the "false information" if you have it. I have managed to recover a few of them but it would be great if I have the full list. Thanks.
