I caught the FBI Moneypak ransomeware virus on my win 7 box. I was able to remove it with Kaspersky rescue disk. I rebooted normally and ran MalwareBytes and Hitman Pro.
It's been a losing battle since then. I've caught and removed one trojan after another with the above tools. As I ran them last , 4 trojans and a root kit dled and killed MWB and Hitman while they were running.
I started over and removed them with Kaspersky RD.
I'm no expert, but it looks like registry entries are downloading and executing malware.
I removed a couple from startup using msconfig, but they reappear.
I downloaded Autoruns and deleted some obviously bad entries.
Restarted in safe mode with networking, ran Kaspersky, MWB, and Hitman pro . All clean.
Rebooted normally, downloaded Mcaffee updated definitions and went to bed with a full scanrunning..
When I woke up the box was down. It would not boot. No messages.
Restored the MBR with a win 7 recue disk and lo and behold everything works again in safe mode.
MWB,HMP,Kaspersky say clean.
But I'm afraid whatever nailed my MBR is still there.
So can you help me rid myself of this plague? I can plug in an external drive and have access to an uninfected computer.
