"Malware Defense"

I've been infected out of nowhere with this trojan horse type thingamajig that appears to be ******* with me 'puter royally. Certainly seems to have disabled anything that was fighting it off. When I googled it, I got sent to 'Spyware Doctor' which looks more than a bit suspicious. Am wondering if it's redirected me in that direction and this thing is going to **** me worse.

Don't have a recent backup, please advise on how to blowtorch this shit to death.

'Spyware Doctor' are ****s... they make you pay to fix the problem.... which actually does not fix the problem.

I had this and had to re-install OS to get rid of everything.

It's taken control of firefox so that anything that'll kill it redirects. BBS, you're my only hope of avoiding a lot of hassle here.

OK... do you still have your System disk? You can do a restore without wiping your drive that should/might help.

I did this and no progammes or files were lost, and problem went away.

Only a partition, so I guess I'll have to backup on someone else's HD (mine's 200 miles away) and do that in the 'morrow. What fun.

Quickest way is to format..... However I believe it is now fixable. One of my Kids managed to get this onto my main computer, I had to format about 5 months back.

Malaware Bytes is the key to keeping it at bay in the first place.

Try this...... or Format.... Formatting will probably be quicker.

I had the same problem recently and followed the instructions above from bleeping computer, the rkill download is very quick and from then on it is easy to sort the problem.

Malaware defense was the first infiltration I've had in about 9 years that caused me to format my computer. Before then I lived on IRC and it was always happening ... learnt a lot though.

Assuming your are using Windows based OS here? Were you using Noscript (Firefox addon) at the time?

Ozzie mentions Malwarebytes and i would second this. Yes it is best if defending you before this, but no harm trying to grab it and do a scan anyway? To view the link you have to Register or Login

I used it on a mates machine and killed off malware that other better known killders did not see.

Make sure you enable "thorough scan" - may take several hours to get through it all, but should find it for you. When found, I would 'move to vault' then later on delete from the vault after you know things still function ok.
