I am trying to remove antivirus soft virus on windows 7 (64-bit). When I try to run rkill.com, I get a popup to download for pev.rkexe as well. What am I supposed to do to run this file? I tried to use internet explorer but it keeps popping up with more pev.rkexe file downloads. So I can't run rkill.com. I need the rkill.com file to run malwarebytes' antiware correctly so I would need rkill.com file first. What do I do?

Thanks!

If mbam will run without using rkill go ahead and run it
You can also download rkill from a different mirror

I'm not sure what mbam is but I suppose that you are referring to malwarebytes' anti malware. I tried to go ahead and use it without rkill but the antimalware cannot find any viruses. Somethings that I have previously done before running malwarebytes was using spyware doctor but that costs money so I left that alone. I have tried all the rkill sites that you gave me but they also had the same results as last time. I still needed the perv.rexe download which continually pops up when I tell it to open. Does perv.rexe have a specific program that I am supposed to open with or does it even matter? Supposedly without perv.rexe, then I cannot fully load rkill. I am thinking that malwarebytes needs rkill or something to detect the virus but I don't know what.

Thanks for all your suggestions for those who replied.

MalwareBytes Anti-Malware = MBAM

Are you absolutely sure the syntax is correct? perv.rexe

I recommend you follow these instructions and submit a DDS log for review:

Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A DDS / HJT Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.


When you have done that, post your log in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Removal Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the Malware Response Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

The MR team is very busy and it will take awhile to get to your post
Please be patient and good luck

If you can logon in safe mode to administrator, and you don't normally use the administrator account, you won't need rkill. Just open mbam (i.e. malwarebytes) but before running it go to the updates and let it update. Check then in the updates that you have today's date after it's finished (or yesterday's). It is crucial to use the latest version. If you have another account with admin privileges that you didn't get the virus in, it may work from there also without the need for rkill. See also my post 4:16 today Friday for more info, though I was am running XP, same difference. :thumbsup:

Now that you have a DDS log posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another Malware Removal Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
