I have been infected with AntiMalware Defender probly from Microsoft update. I ran AVG no luck. I went in manually to remove it access denied. I tried AntiMalware bytes access denied. I tried renaming it in safemode still same results. Removed it completely and reinstalled and saved it under a different name still access denied. Ran combo fix and no luck still keeps reoccurring. I have a sneaking suspicion that this is one of those viruses that resets every time you reboot but not sure.
This virus has disable my audio mixer and a few other things. It also redirects me every three pages which is thourghly annoying. Originally I had to set my computer back to an operational time because it was crashing. Please, I am at my wits end. :thumbsup:

Hi,

Please download RKill by Grinler

  • Download Link #1.
  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click the RKill desktop icon.
    If you are using Vista please right click and run as Admin!
  • A black screen will briefly flash indicating a successful run.
  • If this does not occur please delete that application and download Link #2.

No problem. I'm glad you managed to get it sorted.

Just run a full scan with AVG to make sure no remnants are left. You might also want to try something like Kaspersky Online Scanner just to double check.

Please do an online scan with Kaspersky WebScanner

Click on Kaspersky Online Scanner

You will be prompted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
  • The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files:
  • Once the files have been downloaded click on NEXT
  • Now click on Scan Settings
  • In the scan settings make that the following are selected:
    • Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
    Extended (if available otherwise Standard)
    • Scan Options:
    Scan Archives
    Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan:Select My Computer
  • This will program will start and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
    • Now click on the Save as Text button:
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.

Hi,

The Kaspersky Online Virus Scanner is being updated and improved!


Yes I've been informed of that - you can try a different online scanner such as ESET:

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan
  • Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on Posted Image to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Push the Start button.
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push Posted Image
  • Push Posted Image, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Push Posted Image

I lucked out and found that I had to reinstall all my drivers and as soon as I figured out that (dell had a secret) you have to actually run the installed software which i thought it automatically did it when you restarted nope


So is your soundcard issue sorted?
