I have a win7 computer that has the Fake.HDD Rouge malware and I have tried to run iExplore.exe, eXplore.exe, rkill.com, WiNlOgOn.exe several times in safe mode with networking and get the message "windows has encountered a critical problem and will reboot in 1 minute" and it reboots after stopping one process. How do i keep it from rebooting?
Hi! i was so relieved to see that you had the same issue as me... until I saw there are no relies =(.
Im running windows Vista and the virus I have is Live Security Platinum. Instructions im following to remove the virus direct me to use rkill.exe renamed as various .exe files and warns "not to reboot the computer because the virus will restart as well and undo anything accomplished with rkill"
The problem is that the same error occurs that you are having, and my computer auto reboots in 1 minute.
I noticed that there is a application that opens when rkill triggers the 1 minute reboots error that has the same imitation logo of adobe acrobat that the virus used to manipulate installation in the first place. I notice this because it appears on the bottom bar that displays minimized windows.
Thanks for reading, hope someone has the answer! =)
