I had a tough time removing windows vista recovery WVR, but managed. I used mbam in safe mode and it would stop scanning after 15 minutes or so several times. I finally ended it early to get rid of about 200 or so infections. it still would stall midway through. I tried rkill. mbam would still stall midway in both safe and normal modes. but after running rkill i was able to identify 2 random running files, 1 of which i noted killed the WVR. So i manually went in and deleted both random files. Yahoo!! it got rid of the WVR. now I need to restore the start menu icons and desktop icons. I did use unhide several times but they don't gome back, I did temporarly remove the AV and Mbam to run the unhide as stated at the end of the program, but that don't seem to work either, do I need to manually put them back. Thanks for the help
I am hungry for knowledge
