Windows Media Center Virus


Recommended Posts

All .exe links are pointed to Windows Media Center.   I cannot even edit the registry, as it points to WMC.  I was able to run Rogue Killer, RKill, Malwarebytes, and Vipre Antivirus all from flashdrive, by using .com and loading software from the flashdrive.

 

Nothing finds this virus, nothing removes it.

 

I have tried to "remove windows components" but it points to WMC.

I have tried to run System Restore, but it points to WMC.

 

Any suggestions?

  1. Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to a flash drive.

    Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

    Plug the flashdrive into the infected PC.
