Hello, hope someone can help, as this virus seems like a real bitch to get rid of!

It's not my computer, it's my mothers, so I have been trying to assist via "remote assist" (windows messenger). Malwarebytes scans keep picking up the same file but just crash when trying to remove it (both in safe mode and normal boot).

Anyways, the virus is called something like "Rogue.Antivirus2010". I've attached the log files as requested in the sticky posts here. Hope someone can help!!

Just scan normally. After scan is complete and results are shown you should be able to choose not to fix findings..

MBAM log should be in c:\users\<username>\appdata\roaming\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs folder (replace username with user account name).

Phew! That was one epic scan - over 7 hours! Think I'll run CCleaner or something, as its the temp files that are causing the scans to go so slow I think.

Anyway, please see below for the report - again, thanks for your help:

Thanks for the help Blade81, though that Combofix scared me a bit, so I ended up contacting Malwarebytes who were very helpful, and with a bit of work, the laptop is now cured! A quickscan took 8 mins (compared to the previous 7 hours!!) and found no infection :)

Again, thanks for your time.
