This week my computer started struggling with two viruses. The one I stated in the topic title, HackTool:Win32/Keygen. The other one is virtool:Win32/Obfuscator. 

The latter virus mysteriously disappeared when i deleted the containerfile given to me by MSE. I later read on the internet that this wont erase the virus completely, so this makes me worry.


The virus HackTool:Win32/Keygen still pops up in MSE every time i start the computer.


Computer setup:

I have Dualbios. They are both Windows 7 Home Premium and located on separate harddrives. Both viruses is (were) located on the old harddrive with it's old bios.


I have tried several Anti-virus programs in addition to MSE. I have run Malwarebytes in safe mode on the old bios. I have also run AdwCleaner here. None of them seemed to find  the virus HackTool:Win32/Keygen.


Can you help me? Thanks in advance.

Hello it may be a false Positive.. To make sure we should get a deeper look. Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.

Let me know if all went well.
