New to the forum, apologies if this isn't posted in quite the right place
Wanted to put a message on here mainly in thanks for the details on the main site on removing this extremely aggressive one! Largely this site saved my pc! Excellent work.
For information i'm running vista business edition
However, couple of points I have to add from my experience that i think will be helpful for others:
1. The instructions of the fixreg.exe could be amended to make it clearer as to what will happen - i.e. just a short note to say that you'll need to choose 'start' from the right click menu
2. upon completion of the exercise and malware bytes has removed everything you will find the pc still having the temporary .exe fix and programs not being able to start unless through this 'start' option
This aspect and how to fix it should maybe put in this area?
I tried to find a reverse for altering the registry key, but only really found help with regards to XP.
Eventually i did find one that was from a site with various file extension fixes, but it didn't work - comments on the site did suggest a lower success rate with this
I managed to resolve the problem via a system restore. This scrubbed malware bytes, but of course this will be going back onto the pc!
I hope this information will be helpful to anyone else who gets this horrible one
Thanks once again for the help!
