My friend called and said he had a pop-up. After looking at it, I decided he had the FBI Moneypak virus. I booted in safe mode w/networking, verified no network proxies, and installed and ran malwarebytes and fixed everything pointed to by mbam. The computer works quite well.
there are 2 slight problems. When I log on as a certain user, I get a pop-up saying /users/owner/LOCALS~1/temp/msvrizmyr.exe was not found, please verify the Registry value. This value does exist in the registry, but I cannot delete it, even with some downloaded registry repair programs. The second problem is that the /etc/hosts file seems to be hacked, but it's in read-only mode and every time I change it to r/w, by the time i try to edit it, it's back to read-only mode. I also downloaded some hosts repair programs, they say the hosts file is fixed, but again, it's read only when I try to fix it. I ran Malwarebytes again, nothing flagged. I ran HijackThis! and it flags the hosts file, but I don't seem to be able to save the output because the entire program files file is read only .. Can anyone please suggest a solution ? Thanks .. and, BTW, this is a freebie for my friend, no money involved.
