Malware Removal - Will not reboot from Malwarebytes

Recommended Posts


I recently collected a rootkit with some RiskWare.

Malwarebytes told me that it needs to be rebooted to be deleted, so i reboot and scan again.

It still detects the same viruses that i had previously had and did not delete them.

It does not give me an option to "reboot" my pc after i clicked on quarantine like it did when i first downloaded it.
Please help, it would be greatly appreciated.

These are the items i cannot remove off my computer. 

The system recovery rootkit looks like a nasty one 

Please, if you can guide me on removing these things, that would be great!

I see that you have two Antivirus installed on your system: AVG and avast!. You should never have more than one Antivirus installed at the time on a system, as running multiple at the same time can cause system instability and conflict. Therefore, you should uninstall either AVG or avast!, and keep the other one (uninstall the one you didn't pay for, if that's the case, and keep the one you have an active licence for).

This being said, I see in your Malwarebytes log that you didn't take any action regarding the detections it reported. Once the scan is done running, are you clicking on the Quarantine Selected button (with all the detected threats checked)?

Yes, i am clicking "select all," then i am clicking quarantine selected. When i click quarantine selected, it doesn't give me a "to remove threats, you will need to reboot your computer, would you like to reboot now?" It just tells me i need to reboot. There is no "reboot" option on windows 8.1 that i can find, so i hit the windows key and go to "restart" 

I then scan again and the same threats come up! 


This is why i came here, i didn't know what to do

Because i cannot edit the post above this one, i will say the reason i downloaded AVG is to see if it could pick up on this riskware and Rootkit, which it did not so :/ 

Avast didn't pick it up either. 

And malwarebytes wouldn't remove the virus as stated above, it just tells me to reboot but doesn't give me the option

Alright, let's get a copy of the files Malwarebytes is trying to delete so I can submit them. After running the fix below, a .zip file should be created on your desktop with today's date as name. Upload that file to the link below.
