In mid-January I unfortunately accept a "flash upgrade" repetitive query and this lead to the activation of the rogue " Vista Anti-spyware 2012" on my computer.
The additional problem except the fact that I have all the scans asking for the deletion of some inexistent virus is that my ventilator got crazy and after some strange acceleration it began to run at maximum, so that i immediately shut down my computer.
After some research from my netbook (not infected) about this problem, i understood that it was probably a rootkit called "zaccess" (not sure) which has taken control of some core processes of my computer. I achieve to install "MalawareByte Anti-malaware" on the computer (despite the virus, preventing me from launching executable files) and ran it. It detected some potential threats which i deleted.
After that, the rogue scans stopped and the computer seemed clear. Nevertheless, the problem wasn't solved. My ventilator had one more time the same problem: after ten minutes, it began to have an unusual behavior and then ran at maximum (and the UC was at 100%). According to me, my computer is still infected and perhaps is used for some calculation or whatever.
I'm now asking for some help to delete this threat from my computer.
My OS is Vista 64 bits.
PS: Would the window "backup system to a previous state" delete the infection?
