Using Chameleon to clear Disk Antivirus Professional-how long do I wait?

3 posts in this topic

I am using the Malware Chameleon per the internet instructions to clear the Disk Antivirus Professional. I followed directions and downloaded SVChost.exe to a flash drive on another computer that is not infected, then uploaded it to infected computer anf followed instructions, Everything worked to the point of the black window with white text and I got to the line "Killing known malicious processes, please wait...."

I have been waiting 15 minutes and the next line has not come up in the window the ...."done" message.

My question is, how long should I expect to wait for this "killing" to take place or is the Chameleon not working for some reason.

Hi and welcome, carguy: :)

Until an MBAM staffer arrives...

Additional tips about running Chameleon can be found in these KB topics, though I presume you've already consulted them:

Use Malwarebytes Chameleon to install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware on an already infected system

Use Chameleon to run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware on infected systems

It would probably be advisable to have a qualified malware expert assist you with this.

We can't work on malware diagnostics and removal in this sub-section of the forum.

So, for expert assistance, please follow the recommendations in this sticky topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.

A qualified helper will guide you through the cleanup process using Chameleon and whatever other tools might be needed.

Thanks for the heads up and recommendation. I have been following the instructions you tagged but it has stopped at the "Killing" mode. I will follow your suggestions for help.
