I am a newbie and non Info Security person, so some of my queries may seem foolish. I am more of a security enthusiast - keep abreast of development and tech and learn to use them, not do the coding/analysis. Would love to learn the intricacies of security though.

Came to know about this site through google, after my half-day ordeal(could have been more if it were not for you !).. Here are the details :

I use win7 64 bit home. Got infected by a fake AV - Win 7...2011...(you made me forget its name so soon !!! :thumbup2: ) that came after merely downloading a zip attachment from a legit source(or so it seems). The fake AV was preventing me from using browsers and installing Malware Bytes (MBAM). So i used internet from virtual box.

1-I ran Rkill and got rid of the fake AV as suggested here.
2-Used net from win7 itself and got MBAM and found Trojan.Fakealert at 4 places \AppData\local.
Killed them all.

Free avira had detected "worm rorprian" but was unable to resolve my problem.

NOW IT SEEMS THAT ONLY ONE ISSUE REMAINS :
Rkill removes this file called InfDefaultInstall.exe every time i run it. Is this a component of the malware ?
Also, all the bad files kept reappearing in Rkill logs until MBAM got rid of the "runonce.exe". Does it reinstall c-r-a-p on boot ?

thanks and warm regards to all of you.

One issue with the registration process :

I clicked the link sent to me and go into my already opened e-mail account instead of coming here. Please let me know why ?

thanks.
