Download Microsoft security essentials and run a scan in safe mode. There is a download link in my signature.




Do whatever you want to do man.

Burn the AVG rescue CD and then boot from it.
Run a full scan and hope for the best.

Try ComboFix http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/anti-virus/combofix
It can be a bit dangerous, but I have used it lots and never had a PC not start afterwards. Use at your own risk however.

You could try SuperAntiSpyware, or download something that hunts out Rootkits. I would say however that ComboFix will do the trick.

Are you sure that you updated MBAM? Unusual for it not to get rid of most of these sorts of malware.

Here's a fix a fix i use:


Start the pc up in safe mode with networking

Download CCleaner and install.

Open  CCleaner, go to the Tools, Startup.  You'll see that there are some unusual, things in the startup listing, what you are looking for is something like c:\documents and settings\applications\temp\ ndeehemdkwkw.exe (some random letters.exe)


Delete this entry and anyothers that look like they are starting up from a Docsand settings or User Temp location.


This will remove the entry.


Download Malwarebytes in safe mode, the restart nomally and run another scan.


Normally fixed in under 15mins.

I ran Microsoft safety scanner and Clamwin portable in safemode which seemed to remove it, but also ran Microsoft security essential afterwards in normal mode which picked up two more infected files.

I would recommend you (or get a tech) do a backup of all your personal files and data then do a format and a clean install, just in case.

Hi. Microsoft security scan / Avg etc wont get rid of it

do the following in safe mode with networking

Use Malwarebytes.

you may have to run this script sometimes it screws with the exe and wont let you run exe files. it will say not compltly updated or somthing to that effect but will work. make sure you update it. http://filext.com/WinXP_EXE_Fix.reg



Admitdly this is not going to get rid of all of this virus but will get rid of most if it.

also run ccleaner as well.




Hu? did i do that?
16Mb (EDO RAM), K6-II processor, 2Mb of onboard graphics. 32k dial up modem. 12 speed CD ROM. 5¼-inch floppy drive. 500Mb HDD.
