I'm having issues with a google installer virus that seems very similar to the one described in this thread: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/244830/google-installer-exe-error/
I tried to follow similar steps finding many of the same issues, i.e. Malwarebytes would not work anymore, even if I re-installed and renamed the .exe file (I would then receive an error).
When running Dr. Web (in safe mode) my computer inevitably freezes, sometimes on the express but always at some point in the complete scan.
I was able to run Sophos rootkit, but nothing was recommended to be removed and I did not want to start randomly removing any files.
Any suggestions or assistance that could be offered would be very much appreciated.
