I have two files that keep popping up and reloading into the startup msconfig screen

msmbw.exe and bias poke.exe.

I know these both have to do with the FATSO-E Worm. While i can delete the msmbw.exe file it just keeps coming back. Its because of the bias poke.exe running.

The virus has disabled taskmgr and disabled cmd prompt so i can't kill the process in normal mode. I try to boot into safe mode and get nothing but a blank screen. Can i kill these files from command prompt only mode?

I read the introductory pinned topic about doing hijack this and all that but i have a big problem:

Its impossible to run iexplorer.exe because it immediately closes the window so i cant d/l or install any antispyware/antivirus such as avg or hijackthis.

I was able to install MSN messenger and have the executables for installing adaware AND avg sent to the persons computer. However i only got adaware to install AND neither avg or spybot or hijack this would get past the 1st screen they immediately exited out.

So if anyone knows a Run command to make a process stop running in memory id surely appreciate it.

Kill [process] doesnt work in the run command that only works from cmd and like i said i can't get that running


thank you for your time who ever responds

Do you have access to another computer? If so, download Hijack This and the other programs to a disk or thumb drive from that computer and install them from that. Don't worry about doing the on-line scans. When you post your HJT log, give a brief descriptive title, a concise summary of your problems and what you've tried, what worked and didn't work.

After you post your log, DO NOT make any further changes to your computer: deleting files, editing the registry, using special fix tools, installing or uninstalling software etc. as this will make it more difficult for the HJT team to help you.

Please be patient as the HJT team is very busy. DO NOT bump your log as the team may think that someone is already helping you. If you have not had a response in five days, add a response to the five days no response topic and paste in the link to your thread.

The HiJackThis logfile is the key here. The HJT Team will help you to clean this crap off of your system, but you'll have to be patient.

Just killing off a process or two isn't going to cure your woes - this appears to be a fairly sophisticate attack and it could easily defeat your attempts to bypass it.

Download a copy of HiJackThis on another computer and copy it to a CD or a flash drive - then run it on the infected system so you can post a HJT log.
