what a BOOB!
I have used your instructions before to get a different malware problem fixed. Tried to follow the steps for CLEANUP ANTIVIRUS on a Windows Vista system and when the RKILL cmd window popped up I got an error msg telling me that there was no program associated with file pev.rkexe
. I answered the prompt with NOTEPAD (don't ask me why, I was distracted and stoopid) and now I cannot 'undo' it -- not to mention I don't know what I should undo it to.
I have been assuming pev.rkexe
is part of rkill.com, but perhaps that is part of the dirty dog malware...?
I went ahead and ran malwarebytes in safe mode without having performed the rkill step and found/cleaned 6 infections. Figured I was golden. Wasn't. At the suggestion of an IT guy, ran malwarebytes again today in regular mode and got 3 more.
Now I am back to trying to run RKILL with the same problem as yesterday. I have also tried renaming before copying and downloaded the alias named eXplorer with same result.
