Fakerean help

Recommended Posts

I think I might have posted this before in the wrong forum so I will try hear. Apologies if I put it in the wrong place.

I have a fakerean virus on my laptop that shuts down malwarebytes and crashes my computer when I try to run a scan. I was using microsoft security essentials and that picked up the virus but only parts of it, because it's still there.

I did the DDS scan suggested in another post. Here is the log:

DS (Ver_11-03-05.01) - NTFS_AMD64

Run by Heidi at 11:53:18.07 on 12/03/2011

Internet Explorer: 8.0.6001.19019

Hi and welcome to Malwarebytes.

  • Download the file TDSSKiller.zip and extract it into a folder on the infected PC.
  • Execute the file TDSSKiller.exe by double-clicking on it.
  • Wait for the scan and disinfection process to be over.
  • When its work is over, the utility prompts for a reboot to complete the disinfection.

By default, the utility outputs runtime log into the system disk root directory (the disk where the operating system is installed, C:\ as a rule).

The log is like UtilityName.Version_Date_Time_log.txt.

for example, C:\TDSSKiller.2.2.0_20.12.2009_15.31.43_log.txt.

Please post that log here.

I did the scan with TDSSKiller and it said there wasn't an infection found. And then I tried to find the log and I couldn't find a log.

Before getting your advice I ran spybot search and destroy as administrator and was able to delete an executable file in the temp folder that was infected that other scans weren't picking up. So I'm not sure if that go rid of it.

I am going to run another malwarebytes scan now to see if my computer crashes mid scan again.
