I have downloaded a nasty .gif virus (again) first time like a year or so. Then NO antivirus program was able to detected beside Combofix. I worked on it 18 1/2 hours nonstop but i find the sucker finally. I have downloaded every known program out there and still all came up empty until i run in to this site . My second time around even Combofix didnt work but luckily through you guys i got RougeKiller what find the registry entries. The second i downloaded the picture i know i was in trouble. The mouse curser freezed and started moving funnily around i got nocontrol over it. So yes i fixed this issue again 1000 thanks to all of you guys whom giving helping hand to keep our computers going.
Now here is my question. How to stop windows auto executing the virus "instructions" so it can not change the registry keys in seconds. Generally it turns off the virusprotection, the updates, and the bad websites blocking. Windows7 asking every time before you install a legelimate program if you want to install "this" unkonw program? Why is it not sensing it an other program is like a .gif virus modify's the registry? How could we block , there is any way to block this virus to do this? And i am positive there are the jpeg cousins are working in the similar matter. There is a thing like a jpeg or .gif quarantine? So download first.Goes strait to a quarantine.If it is virus frre then release it for use.It would be a wonderful program to have.
I tried Sandboxie but the 64bit version (still experimental) slows the browsing to a snail paste. So if any of you would know the "hot fix" for this issue...Otherwise this will be a never ending battle. I got Viper antivirus.Funny thing is seems to be non of this programs are capable of detecting the virus as it comes in. And even if the program is still works cant find the virus.After all this time it just amazing this issue can not be come around. So if anyone knows a program or how to change the registry from "auto" execution of downloaded junk , the help would be greatly appriciated.
