Hello all, im know this specific virus has been posted already but im looking for help for my specific situation. Sorry if im in the wrong correct me if i am D: Ok so, christmas eve i was infected with a virus called "Malware Defense" ive never had much expierence with viruses like this, so i did a few things i realise were mistakes lol
So this virus disabled -Avg,Spybot,System Restore,Disk Defragmenter and Security Center. i didnt understand why system restore was not working, so i thought i would turn it off..then back on. Doing this deleted all my restore points. <---that being my mistake lol. Alright well i downloaded spyware doctor and got rid of many viruses at least 300+ among those were rootkits, tracking cookies and others. i read a few guides and manually got rid of mdefense files and those related to it. So i dont have it trying to install itself, or load fake virus alerts and pop ups. i didnt do this in safe mode if that means anything. So here is my problem, ive got most of this virus gone. But not all of it, when i try to re-install avg it says "Avg is not compatiable with malware defense" and spybot wont even open after re-install, so i assume its still there. my pc seems close to virus free except for the disabled programs and what avg install fail tells me. I cant locate whatever is left. So here his my question, how do i locate the rest of this horrible virus and how do i re-enable System Restore,Disk Defragmenter and Security Center! sorry for the wall of text, i wanted to be descriptive =] if this is in the wrong section correct me
Sorry! i forgot to say that i downloaded "malwarebytes" which didnt work until i changed its name and it found a few things as well. Also downloaded "file recovery" but when i tried to use it said the following "could not detect drive" i assume this is because of this virus
