Hi guys,

I believe I have a virus that is running a program called reader_s that is also running some other programs/tmp files. I've ran malwarebytes' anti malware, lavasoft adaware, and my bitdefender virus scan but It hasn't fixed it. It says it found the viruses and deleted them but then when I restart the computer they come right back. Any help would be great.

Hi,

I have bad news for you :thumbup2:

I see you're dealing with Virut (or variant). In that case, it's unfortunately a lost case - Game over situation and a format and reinstall is the fastest and especially the safest solution.

You may want to read this why:
Virut and other File infectors - Throwing in the Towel?

So, I suggest you to start backup all of your valuable data/documents/pictures/movies/songs/etc.. Do NOT backup any applications/installers and Do NOT backup any .exe/.scr/.htm/.html/.xml/.zip/.rar files...
This because these files may be infected as well. If you back them up and replace them afterwards, it will infect your computer again.
