Re: Win 7 Security 2012

First thing I did  yesterday after getting rid of that malware was to buy the pro version of Malwarebytes and download stinger.

McAfee is currently running a full scan and has found and dealt with 2 viruses apparently so far.

Next job, wait for scan to finish and then re-start with fingers crossed having done the netsock thing (?).

Wish me luck :-)

Re: Win 7 Security 2012

Good luck and I hope the pro version of MBAM doesn't clash with McAfee as it feasibly could...but most likely wont.   That's why I always recommend the free one.   The main difference between the two is that you have to manually update the free one each time before running it & real-time protection.  That's the part that could feasibly clash.

If you escape an infection by using System Restore, you can delete the infected files by simply turning off System Restore temporarily.    You needn't reinstall McAfee each time, just simply update it.

XP Internet Security 2012 / XP Security Center 2012 / XP Antispyware 2012 / XP Antivirus 2012 / XP Security 2012 / XP Home Security 2012  all these are same spayware.

If you are trying to remove this spyware, there are full instructions on how to do  that manually at the link :

Kuttus please don't post registry key fixes, especially from rival software companies.

Your link has already been posted in every one of the many threads you have posted to, so thanks anyway.

I think this belongs in Top Threats, so I've moved it there.

I believe the easiest way of removing this is by downloading and burning the G Data Boot CD ISO to a cd, then boot on it, update and scan. You can download the CD from http://www.softpedia.com/get/Antivirus/G-Data-BootCD.shtml

Re: Win 7 Security 2012

I have more of a question than a reply on this discussion:

I have just finished following all the steps and downloads using the bleeping computer removal guide for this win 7 security 2012, but I am still having trouble with the firewall on my computer.  Last night when I discovered this problem, I ran the full scan using McAfee, and it removed 2 files.  I followed this guide after researching it today and everything came out clean, except turning the firewall back on.  I am using the McAfee software, and when I turn the firewall back on, it automatically turns off a couple seconds later.  In the control panel, I get an error message that I can't  change the firewall settings back to the recommended settings.  "Windows Firewall can't change some of your settings.  Error code 0x80070424"

I've even re-run the McAfee scan after I completed the malware removal process.

any suggestions??
