Hi,

I seem to have picked up the Pceu malware and my windows 7 machine is now unusable. I could really do with some urgent help as I have no idea where to go from here.

Any and all help gratefully received..

Thanks in advance.

Additional: all that I can see is my windows Libraries folder but I can access windows explorer from this. My desktop wallpaper is visible but no icons or system bar, system tray, etc.
I was browsing multiple windows in a version of Firefix that I believed to be fully patched and had a fully up to date version of McAfee running.

Hello, this is a difficult fraud app to remove.
We need a deeper look. Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6-9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If GMER won't run skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.

Hi boopme, thanks for the speedy reply.

Unfortunately I can't access the net from my Windows 7 machine. I have an ipad and an old XP machine that I'm using to try and resolve this.

I've temporarily unplugged my infected PC from the internet but could't see anyway to get away from the malware's scare screen to get to a browser when it was connected. It seemed to have launched in a full-screen IE9 session but I couldn't figure out how to launch Firefox or any other program.

Should I plug the network cable back in? Can you guide me on how I can get an internet session in my control?

Thanks.

Either try plugging it in or copy the DDS to a flash drive or CD and try to run it off that
