Bleeping Computer used to have a tutorial named "How to easliy clean an infected computer (Malware Removal Guide)"

 

Is it still available? Has it been updated to include Windows 10?

 

If it is available, could you provide a link to the article.

 

Thank you

Are you referring to this guide?

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-remove-a-trojan-virus-worm-or-malware/

If so, it's from 2005 and a lot changed since then. While a lot of information in it is still relevant today, I suggest you to ask for assistance here if you need help with malware removal.

MalwareTips is the website having an article with the exact name you mentionned.

I thought I got it from bleeping computer.

 

I have a pdf from a couple years ago and I wondered if it has been updated.

 

I can email you a copy in pdf?

 

Basically it consists of 8 steps.

 

In safe mode:

 

1. Run Kaspersky TDSSKiller

2. Run RKILL

3. Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free

4. Run Hitman Pro

5. Run RogueKiller

6. Run AdwCleaner

7. Run Junkware Removal Tool

8. Double Check

  • Step A  Run  Eset Online Scanner
  • Step B  Run  Emsisoft Emergency Kit

 

I thought this guide was in a Bleeping Computer Blog post but I searched and did not come up with anything.

 

I have always downloaded these programs from Bleeping Computer.

Aura,

 

You were correct regarding malwaretips.com

 

The article I was referring too apparently came from them.

 

Sorry for the confusion

Anyhow, I suggest you to be careful when following that guide. A member followed these instructions this week, and found himself with an unbootable computer the next morning.

When you read that malware removal is a sensible matter and sometimes, it's not as simple as it seems, it's true.
