Hi all I have a huge problem and I am about to go nuts.

I have tried everything I can think of from these forums and others but I cant seem to get this virus off my computer.

I believe the Virus name was "Security Protector" or something of that nature. I have removed these fake security viruses over 5 times now. I am no wiz at computers or anything but thanks to certain malware removal tools it worked.

This time around I cant kill the damn thing. Ok now onto everything I have tried to do:

-booted in safe mode tried to remove it via Rkill and Malwarebytes but this time it did not run malwarebytes. it said it was unable to access and also later threw a code 707 2
-booted again in safemode then decided to do a system restore to a previous date and try to clean the computer that way...didnt work same bleep.
-booted in safe mode tried to run all the options in Rkill dns, scan etc. didnt remove it.
-booted again and tried to reinstall malwarebytes but redirecting started and wouldn't let me access anything via google yahoo etc.
-used my laptop and got inherit.exe was told to open and put malwarebytes folder inside it...no luck inherit wont even open up.
-booted again this time firefox won't even open up!!! ARRRRRGGHHH

Please help me with what ever you can. Rkill still works so I can copy the log from that if it helps thank you all!

You have an advanced rootkit infection. This type of thing goes beyond the scope of this forum and will require assistance from our Malware Removal Team.

It appears that the issues on your system will require a more in-depth examination than can be performed in this forum. Please read the information in this guide, and follow all the steps beginning with step 6. After you have followed the steps in that guide, I would like you to start a new thread HERE and include a link to this thread.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient. The MRT is very busy, so it could be several days (3-5 days is the average wait right now) before you receive a reply. But rest assured, help is on the way!


If I am helping you, it has been 48 hours since your last post, and I have yet to reply to your topic, please send me a PM
