I was googling for a good site to watch movies online and then I suddenly got these 'system alerts' (later I found out it was from Malware Defense and not from my computer). Then Malware Defense started downloading itself onto my desktop and all that jazz. I tried running Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, Spyware Doctor (it works but it doesn't remove the virus/trojan/whatever Malware Defense is). I've tried even tried using tdsskiller first before running malwarebytes but both programs do not run. they download -- but they don't run. I've tried running these programs using safe mode and the regular boot up but Malware Defense seems to block the programs no matter what...

I've also tried re-naming Malwarebytes but to no avail!


Please help me!

Hello try this first then quickly run MBAM(Malwarebytes) from normal mode.

RKill....

Please download Rkill by Grinler and save it to your desktop.Link 2
Link 3
Link 4
  • Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
  • If using Vista, right-click on it and Run As Administrator.
  • A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
  • If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
  • If it does not work, repeat the process and attempt to use one of the remaining links until the tool runs.
  • If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.
You will need to run the application again if rebooting the computer occurs along the way.

thanks for replying :flowers:

yesterday, while in safemode, i managed to download rkill and run malwarebytes which deleted a bunch of damaged registry keys. after that, i re-booted my computer and all signs of the virus seemed to be gone...

however, today when i logged on, a blue screen popped up (it said something about the computer having to shut down to prevent damages or something) and then my computer shut down. ever since, every time i try to turn on my computer a black screen pops up. the computer turns on but the screen is black. at first i thought it was because i had a cd in my cd-drive (which i took out) -- i kind of took it out sloppily but the screen remains black when i turn the computer on... what's going on?? is it the malware defense? i know it's still there since my computer continues to flip out on me.

also, the previous 2 times when i turned on my computer, right before logging in, it asked me to debug something (i didnt catch the name) and asked me to send an error report after logging on because of 'previous damages' (i think) to microsoft which i did. <---- these reports didnt start showing up until after malware defense.

how do i solve this black screen problem?? :thumbsup:

See if this fixes your Net issues .

Go to Start ... Run and type in cmd
A dos Window will appear.
Type in the dos window: netsh winsock reset
Click on the enter key.

Reboot your system to complete the process.
