I've read a few things on this virus before, and the suggestions posted may work for my friend, but sadly, the virus is preventing add/remove programs from working.
When most files are clicked (including rkill), the virus claims "Application could not be executed. The file *** is infected."
My friend has no professional antivirus system on their computer, but I had her install Avast after the virus entered, which stopped the large red pop ups.
Malwarebytes found nothing, even on a full scan in safe mode. If possible, I would bring a USB/CD with a clean version of Malwarebytes over, but there's just no way to do that right now.
Her computer runs for about 4 or so minutes before whatever open applications freeze.
If necessary, I could get her set up on these forums to reply directly. She'd probably reply over iPhone, but could also on her computer if absolutely necessary.
Please help! Her computer is the only way she can contact a lot of her good friends, and they all miss her! Thank you so much in advance!
