Win32/Stanit Virus problem...

Hi guys. I recently contracted a Stanit virus recently, and I've been having a helluva time trying to get rid of it.
I have reformatted 3 times and it still keeps persisting upon reformats.

I'm running a HP-Pavillion Desktop Computer
When I scan with Averia, it comes up with:
E:\HP\apps\APP00805\install.bat

and also in my HP folder, its saying my Command.exe is also infected with the Stanit virus.

I have used the Averia Virus Removal Tool countless times in safemode, but the virus keeps coming back. Im running out of options and I dont want to buy a new 3000$ computer.

Any help leading to the final removal of the Stanit Virus would be honestly the best news of the last 10 years of my life.

Hello

 

When I scan with Averia, it comes up with:
E:\HP\apps\APP00805\install.bat

and also in my HP folder, its saying my Command.exe is also infected with the Stanit virus.

I have used the Averia Virus Removal Tool



Do you mean Avira? Avira does not have an online scanner, so do you have Avira installed?

 

E:\HP\apps\APP00805\install.bat

and also in my HP folder, its saying my Command.exe is also infected with the Stanit virus.



According to Avira Stanit is a file infector.

If you have foramtted three times and it is still appearing in the same folder and you have installed nothing else, then i would guess that this is a flase detection. You would have to send the files to Avira lab and let them check it.
