Hey, how's it going everyone?
Yesterday my Grandpa's computer was infected with this Windows Recovery virus. His computer had a similar virus before and I cleared that up with System Recovery. Simple enough. I'm not too familiar with the Tech stuff, by far, so I thought I'd ask for help. I've read through countless threads on the subject and haven't came up with anything.
I'm not sure if it's still infected or not. Last night, while running in Safe Mode with Networking, I ran TDSSKiller, then Rkill, which allowed me to run Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware Pro, solving most of the problems. No more pop-ups, so far. But, under All Programs, Windows XP Recovery is still there. I'm afraid if I "uninstall" it, it'll start popping up again. So, maybe I still have the virus and it's dormant? I don't know.
Either way, under All Programs, all of them are '(Empty)'. I've used the newest version of the Unhide program. Nothing.
If it still have the virus, I'd like to know what else can be done to get rid of it. If it's not infected, how do I get the programs back?
I'm not sure how to show logs...
Thanks in advance!! Cheers!
