I'm going through the Remove System Check (Uninstall Guide)and have a problem getting TDSSKiller.exe to run (step 6 in the guide).
I believe I have the system check virus/malware because of the following symptoms:
1.Redirection of google search results: when I click on a site in google it redirects to an advertisement site or similar site that is unrelated to my search..
2.system check is on my computer and runs a scan (or a fake scan) everytime I start the computer
3.system check tells me that my hard drive has problems ie.
"hard drive rotational speed decreased by 20%"
"disk drive C:\ is unreadable"
"system files are damaged. System is unstable"
and other similar messages
4.a popup error message is titled "Windows - Delayed Write Failed" and says "Failed to save all the components for the file \\system32\\000030ee. The file is corrupted or unreadable. This error may be caused by a PC hardware problem"
According to the Remove System Check (Uninstall Guide), these are fake alerts, errors etc. caused by system check. I've begun to go through the Remove System Check (Uninstall Guide), and have completed up to step 5 without major issue.
Step 6 asks me to run TDSSKiller, but I have been unable to do so. I've renamed the TDSSKiller.exe file several times using different names (terrible.com, that.com etc) without luck. I click on the desktop icon to run the file TDSSKiller.exe (renamed of course) and my mouse icon adds an hourglass for a second and then goes away. No program was run (as far as I can tell).
Let me know if I should post any logs.
I apologize if this topic is in the incorrect place, if it is please let me know so I can change it.
