I posted this on the MBAM forums and got no response.
So last week my PC was infected with some kind of virus. It started out giving me that whole fake security program thing, which MBAM removed outright, then I started getting those notices that MBAM had blocked access to PING.exe". Anyway, its an old PC so I decided to scrap it and just use my laptop. I unplugged the internet outright and I transferred my files from my PC to my laptop via jump drive.
Everything was fine for a few days, NOW MY LAPTOP IS INFECTED! I installed Kaspersky's virus software which scanned my computer, however malwarebytes still claims to be blocking access to programs like ping.exe, avp.exe, svhost.exe etc etc.
First question is WHAT DO I DO?!
Second question is there any way to keep or transfer the files on my PC without transferring the virus as well? Do you think thats how it spread in the first place?
