Need help with respawning virus

Recommended Posts

Avast and Norton have proven themselves pretty much useless to combat this respawning virus, so I've resorted to Malware Bytes, which has worked effectively in the past. I remember a year or more ago I had a similar problem where Avast's bootscan and Norton's regular scans didn't help eliminate the problem, but MB did. Something to do with turning off system restore?

Can someone walk me through this? I know there are still viruses on my desktop, but I can't find the originating files that keep coping them each time the desktop is turned on. MB did not find anything, but I know they are still there. I am kind of starting to panic, heh.

Ah, sorry; please move this to the anti-malware help section.

Please don't attach the scans / logs, use "copy/paste".

Please download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links and save it to your desktop.

[*]Disable any script blocking protection (How to Disable your Security Programs)

[*]Double click DDS icon to run the tool (may take up to 3 minutes to run)

[*]When done, DDS.txt will open.

[*]After a few moments, attach.txt will open in a second window.

[*]Save both reports to your desktop.


  • Post the contents of the DDS.txt report in your next reply
  • Attach the Attach.txt report to your post by scroling down to the Attachments area and then clicking Browse. Browse to where you saved the file, and click Open and then click UPLOAD.
