Hey all,
I have 2 computers on my bench that are infected with the "Cyber Security" rouge antivirus. I've run MBAM-nothing, ESET with an external scan (as well as mbam)- nothing and combofix. Combofix found 4 items, removed them, but when I restarted it came right back.

IDEAS?? This is making me angry...

Ok,
I tired the steps in the link using Process Explorer to kill the cs.exe process. After a FULL scan with mbam, it was gone, even after reboot. Ran Combofix just to double check, nothing. Did a few reboots on both machines, all good.

Thank you for the help!
