Have used this to research many problems and appreciate all the great info, now I'm stumped and need some help.
I just worked on a friends computer. Gateway GX7022E. Had tons of virus and malware. Ran Malwarebytes, Avast 5 Boot scan, and Hitman pro. Fully updated with all microsoft updates. Rescanned again, came up clean. After about 8 hours came up with Antivirus 8. Rescanned with Malwarebytes, left the fake anti virus alert up just to see how quick it showed up, assumed it must be in memory at this time, heck it was on the screen, but nothing, scanned clean. Obviously I missed something the first time around, assuming that's how Antivirus 8 got in. Unless it just got lucky but seems unlikely to me. Any help would be appreciated. Not worried about data, could simply reload but I don't like being beaten by the criminals.
