this is my first post here ,,,,i just want to state i m quite going to go mad with this recent infection i h on my PC.
It started 4 days back,,,, u see i wanted to back up my HDD , by using Norton Ghost 14.After paying for the Recovery Disk, i thought of doing the restore. Last 2 days back i did the restore successfully , but it also showed VProConsole.exe (.Net Initialization error) when i tried to open Ghost. Now my Norton Ghost wont open. However that is not the major case.
i uninstalled, installed .Net framework, it kept poping the same message. i tried unistalling n installing Norton Ghost 14 , but same thing. Then i started opening Firefox , it took quite a while ,(i knew at that instant something was wrong) i could not open Symantec.com.
I thought of installing Avira AntiVir, but that too didn't open. Somehow by clicking 50 -60 time on Avira setup file i got it installed , then it showed a huge list of infected file , mainly .exe file (huge list) . It said this exe file has a code of W32.Sality Virus.
When i googled i found W32.Sality is a Malware n remains in stealth mode and it mainly infects exe files. Now it has infected all my exe files , so i think that is the reason for infection the VPRoConsole.exe of .Net Framework.
Internet has slowed down my whole PC has slowed down, right now i m trying TrueSword n Anti Virus plus , i m running them right now. Just to save my time i m posting this thread.
Just to post this thread i had to restart my pc twice because of this malware.
Can some please help me,,,,,
This Malware is really irritating......
After removing this Malware i want to format my pc n do a fresh Backup again..
