Ensuring scando virus fully removed

Recommended Posts


I received an alert on my computer yesterday that it had been infected with a trojan - it didn't give any more details but I think the alert was from my antivirus program McAfee. I scanned my computer with mcafee and Malware Bytes - Malware Bytes showed up several infected files, mostly with 'scando' and 'linkury' viruses. I quarantined and then deleted the files through Malware Bytes. Scans since have come up clean. However, I have read that scando viruses can hide from antivirus programs and can be potentially devastating for computers, so I wanted to ensure that I have done all I can and that my computer is clean and safe. Any help would be appreciated, thanks

One more fix. After this, let me know is everything okay.


FRST.gif Fix with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

icon_exclaim.gif Running it on another one may cause damage and render the system unstable. icon_exclaim.gif

Both files, FRST and fixlist.txt have to be in the same location or the fix will not work!

    (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
  • Press the Fix button just once and wait.

Since there are no more problems, we can declare this PC clean thumbs_up_smiley.gif

Now, we can proceed with post-cleanup procedures. Let's remove my tools and create a new, non infected restore point concurrently deleting old ones.

Step 1. - Creation of system restore point and tools removal.

Download DelFix by Xplode and save it to your desktop.

  • Run the tool by right click on the 51a5ce45263de-delfix.png icon and Run as administrator option.
  • Make sure that these ones are checked:
    • Remove disinfection tools
    • Purge system restore
    • Reset system settings

  • Push Run and wait until the tool completes his work.
  • All tools we used should be gone. Tool will create an report for you (C:\DelFix.txt). I don't need it for review.

Tool deletes old system restore points and creates a fresh system restore point after cleaning.

Step 2. - Tips and tricks to keep your computer clean, safe and in a good shape.

Security tips - highly recommended reading:

Maintenance tips:

Additional software that I personally use and install on all my clients devices:

  • Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware(paid version highly recommended) - to scan your system from time to time in search for malware.
  • Malwarebytes' Anti-Exploit - to prevent plenty of mostly exploited vulnerabilities.
  • McShield - to prevent infections spread by removable media.
  • Unchecky - to prevent from installing additional foistware, implemented in legitimate installations.
  • CryptoPrevent - tool for protection against Cryptolocker and similar ransomware infections.
  • Adblock - to surf the web without annoying ads!
  • Qualys BrowserCheck - cloud service that scans your browsers and plugins to see if they’re all up-to-date.

My help is free for everybody.
