Hi, everyone. It was suggested on another site somewhere that I come to bleepingcomputer.com for help on this issue. I have recently been infected with a malware program called Galileo System Cleaner. It basically gives constant popups, fake system scans, and then blocks any web browser from browsing the internet with a fake proxy problem page. It restores its own files when they are deleted, and I assume it's gone pretty deep into my system. Do you have any advice on this issue? Please keep in mind that I have no experience or knowledge concerning my registry (or even what that is), and both ComboFix (run in safe mode) and Malware Bytes have failed so far. Malware Bytes did detect two problem files, but their deletion had no effect on Galileo.

Any thoughts? Any help would be wonderful.

Argh, I realize I just posted this in the wrong forum! Sorry, mods. Is there no way I can delete this?

Edit: Not to worry, moved topic from Win 7 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal
