I've already seen a few posts regarding this topic. Basically I've tried everything. I must have scanned my computer with 10 to 15 different anti-virus / anti-spyware software. Nothing works, unable to detect or remove this bleeper of a virus. I'm really sick of it, so before going ahead with formatting my computer, I wanted to try this site...
First time I realised I had a virus problem was when my security centre got disabled unexpectedly. Windows Security Essentials stopped working, wouldn't turn on. Then I started realising, when I clicked on search results in Google, occasionally, I was re-directed to spam sites. So I downloaded malware bytes and spybot-s&d, installed both, and then restarted in safe mode. I've done a few full scans. Malware bytes came up with 4 risks; spybot came up with the security centre is disabled error. I've fixed all problems and restarted. Unfortunately the virus was still there. After that I've tried bunch of other anti-spyware software people recommended. None of them worked.
Finally Iíve tried ComboFix, Iíve scanned in safe mode. It found a few viruses and deleted them. Though when I restarted, the problem persisted. So I ran it again, but this time in normal Win7 mode. It deleted a few more files.
After ComboFix, I run CCCleaner a few times to clean up the registry. I also ran a Microsoft fix to correct problems with the host file.
Iíve tried all the following;
Win32/Olmarik Removal Tool
Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool
PC Tools Spyware Doctor
So, out of options and would appreciate your help.
