A couple of days ago, I've made a stupid mistake. I've downloaded and installed a software from the internet without checking everything first. This software apparently installed in the same time, and without my consent, Iminent start search bar.
When the installation ended, my browser (chrome) crashed immediately. I've tried to open it again, new crash.
Freaked out, I've used the system save to come back to a previous version of the computer. My last copy was from the day before.
I thought it would be enough. But after a doubt yesterday evening, I've run a quick scan with malwarebytes. It found 530 malware in the system.
I've then looked in panic all over the web to find a solution and found this thread : http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/486024/cannot-get-rid-of-iminent/
I've done :
TDSS killer - nothing found
Farbar's MiniToolBox - useless
AdwCleaner by Xplode - Search for Adware - 2 things on browser found and deleted
Junkware Removal Tooll by thisisu - found secret sauce file
Then, I thought it was all good. But tonight I run a new scan with the other software of the thread.
ESET online scanner
For the time being, it found 11 files infected with win32/sality.nba , win32/browseFox.B application, and sality worm for other drivers.
I'm totally freaked out, the scan doesn't seem to work anymore and is blocked on 43% for 10 minutes now. What do I do ? Do I restore the whole system tomorrow ? (I don't have the files on me right now)
OS : windows 7
