I've been trying to clean up a friends computers for about two weeks. They were both pretty infected. Both of the machines have CCleaner, SpyBot, Trendmico Titanium and Malwarebytes Pro on them. One is a desktop. One is a laptop. I'd like to start with the laptop first in this thread.
The laptop is a Windows 7 machine that was upgraded from Windows Vista. The startmenu is still not right even after running the "unhide" programs and other tools that are supposed to fix it. No matter what, pup.bitminer comes back. In Firefox, it keeps getting the proxy turned on to 127.0.0.0 to a high port which doesn't work. I'm guessing a piece of the malware for it is missing.
Please help me cleanup this laptop.
