The malware is a name changing malware as explained in the introduction of the guide. It adapts depending on what OS you are running.

Thank you for your generous offer, but we do not accept donations for the site, nor I personally. If you would like to pay it forward, then we suggest you donate to a charity such as a police department, fire department, or women's shelter.

If in the future you work with a trained Malware Removal Team member it is perfectly okay to donate to them. It is up to the individual team member to decide if they accept donations.

Thanks again for your generous offer.
