Hello all;

I am in need of some help. My laptop is infected with a virus I believe is called system kill. I tried removing it with malware and was unsuccessful. Now many of my files are hidden and my stupidity did not make back ups. Is there a way to retrieve these (mainly pics and music) and restoring the laptop to proper functioning? Thanks for some insight.

Edit: Moved topic from Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs to the more appropriate forum, due to the lack of any malware logs included in this topic. ~ Animal

Boot the PC into safemode with networking

Press windows+R key and type

%temp% and click ok

If you find a folder called SMTMP ,make sure to copy it to a safe location



Launch it and allow it to run,this should unhide your files



Install,update and run a full scan

Click on SHOW results.Select all infections and remove it

Reboot the PC and scan MBAM once in regular mode until you get a clean log



Launch it.Click on change parameters-Select TDLFS file system

Click on "Scan".Please post the LOG report(log file should be in your C drive)
