I'm pretty sure I have malwarebytes anti malware installed on the computer but the doj virus has completely locked me out. I have tried running in safemode, safemode with networking, and safemode with command prompt but the doj pop up still shows up immediately. I even tried running them with my lan unplugged and router off but then I just get a popup (presumably from the virus) that says "turn off safe mode and connect to the internet" or something to that effect. Now the weird part is that when I ran the virus in the three safe modes with the web still connected it never mentioned that I had it in safe mode. I read that hitmanpro kickstart on a usb will get rid of it but my dad has files on the computer that he wants to keep and I've read that hitmanpro could accidentally delete those files. I'm assuming this is a new version of the virus because no one seems to have made a post about it anywhere on the internet. Can someone please help me. Also the computer is a desktop windows vista. I can't take a screenshot of it because I can't even use the computer but I took a picture of it.

Hi and welcome.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to a flash drive.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

Plug the flash drive into the infected PC.

  • If you are using Windows 8 consult How to use the Windows 8 System Recovery Environment Command Prompt to enter System Recovery Command prompt.

    If you are using Vista or Windows 7 enter System Recovery Options.

    To enter System Recovery Options from the Advanced Boot Options:

  • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
  • Select your user account an click Next.
  • Note: In case you can not enter System Recovery Options by using F8 method, you can use Windows installation disc, or make a repair disc. Any Windows installation disc or a repair disc made on another computer can be used.
    To make a repair disk on Windows 7 consult: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/2083-system-repair-disc-create.html



    To enter System Recovery Options by using Windows installation disc:
  • Insert the installation disc.
  • Restart your computer.
  • If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc. If your computer is not configured to start from a CD or DVD, check your BIOS settings.
  • Click Repair your computer.
  • Select US as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next.
  • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.

  • On the System Recovery Options menu you will get the following options:
  • Startup Repair
  • System Restore
  • Windows Complete PC Restore
  • Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool
  • Command Prompt

    Once in the Command Prompt:
  • In the command window type in notepad and press Enter.
  • The notepad opens. Under File menu select Open.
  • Select "Computer" and find your flash drive letter and close the notepad.
  • In the command window type e:\frst (for x64 bit version type e:\frst64) and press Enter
    Note: Replace letter e with the drive letter of your flash drive.
  • The tool will start to run.
  • When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the flash drive. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
