Hello Bleeping Computer

 

Over the last couple of weeks MSE have encountered the two viruses stated above, VirTool:Win32/Obfuscator.XZ and HackTool:Win32/Keygen on my computer. Never did it succefully delete them. 

 

Before doublechecking its potency on the internet, i deleted the containerfile of Virtool:Win32/Obfuscator.XZ given by MSE. Since only the containerfile has been deleted, I worry about it still hiding and causing damage inside my system. 

 

The 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.

 

How do i proceed to clean my computer?

Helpers are limited in the number of logs they can take by the time they have available and having threads sit idle means that somebody else who could be being helped has to wait. Given that there has been no response for at least five days, and I have no way of knowing when there will be one, this thread is now closed.

 


So long, and thanks for all the fish.
