The virus comes up in the processes as liouqi.exe on our pc and luimuu.exe on my laptop but I think its the same thing as it has the same effect. (uses up all the CPU) I have downloaded GMER as that seemed to come up a lot on the posts here and found that I can 'kill' the process using this but it comes up again when I load the computer again. Also I think it may be affecting access to the control panel as since this problem started I am having trouble opening programs, but particularly the control panel, and also task manager.
One issue I have is that both these computers aren't used for internet access and don't have wireless capability so I am looking for a solution that I can move to the computer via scan disc or cdrom from a healthy computer. This is complicated by the fact that our scan discs are infected (at least we think so).
To continue our sorry tale: the house laptop which we do use for internet purposes had the free AVG anti-virus program. I downloaded the flash disinfector (found link on this forum) and tried to clean the flash drives using this. I think (fingers crossed) I may have had some success as when I plugged the first flash drive in, the AVG found the liouqi virus and I then removed it and also cleaned it using the flash disinfector. I then repeated this process with two other flash drives also (apparently) successfully. Then on the final two flash drives multiple trojan viruses were found by AVG and I removed them and cleaned the drive in the same manner. Thankfully these final two that had the trojans weren't used on the other computers.
Since then the house laptop has also gone completely mad. It won't shut down normally (only through a forced shutdown), everything runs slowly or just stops working randomly, and I can't do anything on the control panel or task manager which won't even open. I have opened GMER here and there is no sign of the liouqi virus so I'm not sure what has infected this computer - maybe the trojans were too powerful. I have managed to run AVG since and found nothing and also tried Malwarebytes and found nothing. It's very difficult for me to do anything fullstop. I don't know if this is more normal with modern computers but there are over 90 processes going on the house laptop according to GMER.
Anyway the bottom line is that now all 3 computers are sick in some way and we are near the final straw and don't know what to do. Any advice?
One PC - assume infected with just lioqui virus
One Private Laptop - assume infected with just lioqui virus
One House Laptop used for internet - unknown problems
