I have been working with Malwarebytes.org to get rid of a virus/malware (don't know exactly what it is) on my computer. The virus shows up on my Add/Remove List as an Antivirus 2010 that cannot be uninstalled but I think there could be more than one virus. Malwarebytes asked me to re-run combofix. They had provided a combofix file that I downloaded and used earlier. When I clicked on it this time, it updated, got to the Warranty screen but then after a bit said there was an error in the ComboFix I had, that it was infected with Virut (I think) and that I should download it from bleeping computer. It also disappeared from my desktop. Please tell me where on your site I can find it to download.

Also, should I unistall Malwarebytes before running ComboFix? I've done this a few times run ComboFix, then uninstall and reinstall Malwarebytes and the virus is still there. Any direction you can give is greatly appreciated.

Lets first check that Virut if we can.

  • Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  • Click the ESET Online Scanner button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on Export to text file... to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Eset Smart Installer icon on your desktop.
  • Check the "YES, I accept the Terms of Use"
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Check Scan archives
  • 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 "List of found threats"
  • Push "Export to text file", 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 "<<Back" button.
  • Push Finish
In your next reply, please include the following:
  • Eset Scan Log

NOTE: In some instances if no malware is found there will be no log produced.
