Please help to get rid of Cryptor

Recommended Posts

I have Malwarebytes installed and have had no problem in running it when my computer has become infected in the past.

This time however I have managed to acquire a Trojan called win32/cryptor that is preventing Malware to do its job.

I have put the computer into safe mode and tried to run malware, but the error msge I am getting is:

c:\program files\malwarebytes'Anti-Malware\mbam.exe

A device attached to the system is not functioning

Any ideas on what I should do to rid myself of this nasty little virus and to get Malware operating again?

Thanks for reading this post and any help would be appreciated.

To get you fixed up please follow the instructions here:

I'm infected - What do I do now?

And post your logs in a new topic here:

Malware Removal - HijackThis Logs

Please be sure not to install any software or use any removal or scanning tools exept those that you are

instructed to by the expert who will be assisting you as doing so can make their job much more difficult.

note: if for some reason you are unable to run some or any of the tools in the first link, then skip that step and move on to the next one.

If you can't even run HijackThis, then just post here: Malware Removal - HijackThis Logs describing your issues and an expert will reply with further instructions.

I hope I was helpful. Good luck and safe surfing. :P
