Has anybody identified this thing yet?

Recommended Posts

Has anybody identified what this latest Virus/Malware is that is disabling everyone's scan tools? I have been trying to just let my PC sit until there is a proven clean up. It seems like a lot of people have similar symptoms but the advice from the guru's here seems all over the board.

Has somebody successfully identified this thing and removed it?

I first began with MS Antivirus 2009 popping up. Windows defender tagged it as Win32/renos and Win32/FakeAlert before it was disabled. Mcafee detected it as fakealert!d.generic and generic fakealert-gd before mcafee was disabled. HJT, Combofix. MBAM, MS Security Essentials and the above mentioned have been rendered useless by permission changes.

I've posted a thread requesting help and bumped it yesterday. Still no response.

Hi justjared and welcome to Malwarebytes.

See if this will run:

Please run a GMER Rootkit scan:

Download GMER's application from here:


Unzip it and start the GMER.exe

Click the Rootkit tab and click the Scan button.

Once done, click the Copy button.

This will copy the results to your clipboard.

Paste the results in your next reply.

Warning ! Please, do not select the "Show all" checkbox during the scan.

Also try running this after that:

Download DDS by sUBs and save it to your Desktop.

Double-click on the DDS icon and let the scan run. When it has run two logs will be produced, please post please post the one that is not minimized.
