Did you have stinger set to report only and have you tried it in safe mode that might free up the file to allow its removal.
ow is your system now? Any changes?
Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
- Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
- If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
- Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
- The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient.
- When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
- Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
- When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
- The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
- Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts, click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.
I believe this detection is a false alarm, the detection is generic so Mcafee does not know if the file is good or bad. The file may be part of HP`s nVidia driver, so DO NOT delete the file until it has been confirmed.
You can send the file to the lab or have it scanned by other vendors in link below:
This is what I having problems with for the last two days. Stinger stating that Fakealert!-REP virus is on my PC.
I ran McAfee, Stinger Stopzilla, and Malwarebytes.
Stinger and Stopzilla results were that this virus was there.
This is what I did:
1. Program Files\RealArcade\bin folder - I deleted the entire folder
2. Program files\FP_AX_CAB_NSTALLER.exe - was nother there
3. System32\swsc.exe - did not touch this (important)
Is this a fake detection or is it real? Can someone help me with this issue. Thanking you inadvance.
