I have the rogue virus that states that each file is infected and tells you to turn on antivirus software.
First it is wuauclt.exe, then ipconfig.exe and so on.
I have booted to safe mode and run malwarebytes. Interestingly I just downloaded it a month ago or so for another problem which it fixed. I can't update anymore since I can only run in safe mode and my database is 22 days old. I have scanned and it found 2 programs which were deleted (I didn't record them). That didn't help. I've run rkill and it found nothing. I rebooted normally and same problem.
I had deleted wuauclt.exe 1st as somewhere it said to do that - didn't help.
I have to admit that I had windows update turned off and hadn't done it in a while. I also haven't done anything dangerous in awhile but I think this has been in the background for over 6 months. I had klite codec (since deleted) and I have been a torrent user (but not in 6 months).
I appreciate any help. I am ready to wipe the computer clean and maybe go to Windows 7 but it has a lot of files on it that I need. Should I be nervous about moving these over to another computer?
