Hi
I tried downloading the tool. However it retured a message "Unable to execute file c:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\mbam.exe"
"Create process failed; code 2.
The system cannot find the file specified."

Could you help me understand why the mbam.exe file in not downloading.

Thanks for the response, unfortunately yesterday night, prior to your response, I downloded the mbam.exe application via another site and executed scan. At that time it seemed to have removed the malware. However when I restarted the PC later on, it does not let me log into windows, it have tried a few times already. Actually it lets me log in for 3-4 seconds and 'logging off' again, tried it in safe mode via admin and its the same. Do you have a workaround this one.

Yes it was one of the first things I fixed:

Fix the path for userinit (Change C:\ to reflect your path): So use the UBCD4win and make sure the path and file are correct. That will fix the login logout loop.

Code:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"Userinit"="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\userinit.exe,"

I ran the program in safe mode as you suggested and when I turned it on again the items were still there. Is there anything else that I can do to remove this malware?

I think i got it bad, I tried everything and it took over really fast.

Can't login into the OS - I can boot from the CD but after a while i keep getting error codes and fails. When i try safe mode i get the blue screen of death. i tried UBCD4Win but nothing.

I think the only thing i can do is buy a new hard drive.

I got this Malware on Christmas Day after trying to copy a weird looking email address to put on my internet ban list instead it went immediately into a trojan horse advertising Internet Security 2010..This problem was way over my head in all respects so I enlisted the help of a friend that helped me remotely, using team viewer he did all the things specified plus a few extras...he said it wormed its way past the registry into the system files..Now I have some pretty electrified wall paper, my windows login is gone, windows explorer has vanished, and although it does have a few resources that are ok, even the Start Button with all my programs are missing basically its a blank screen with no obvious way of accessing anything..this is a very dangerous Malware program I am at a loss for words but I don't think it will be ok unless a new HDD is installed, the sad thing is I just got this system on Tuesday December 22nd

descriptionExcellent addition!

Two of my customers got this virus this morning and this is the addition that really helped me to resolve the problem. This little pest may have evolved since this guide was written because if the userinit.exe is changed you won't even be able to get into Safe Mode so the rest of the guide is pointless without this. Hooray! I think this should be added to the full instructions. Thank You!

Hey everyone!

just got this crap last night! Sad tearing...im kind of noob at this so i hope u can help me!

i havent installed it, i just get the popups that i should install and have the warning sign on my desktop "that i am infected. but then when i try to extract the .rar file with malaware from the link i just get a warning that "Application cannot be executed.the file infected, Please activate your antivirus software" so im kind of stuck at this,

i have norton 360 installed ive runned that and found somekind virus...havent restarted the cpu yet though so i still get the pop-ups as im typing this...

if i would do a full system install with windows cd so that the harddrive "formated" would the virus be removed then? cause in my case that seems like the easier way for me..

really hope u guys can help me fast. and sry for my bad english im a swede! Big Grin thx otherwise

it said for me also that i can't open it because it's infected, so i went to the site itself and downloaded it from there with no problems.

Just got this one, and pretty sure I just got rid of it. This is really pesky, moreso than last year's "Anti Virus 2009". You need the most recent version of Malwarebyes anti Malware. If you don't have it, restart your computer and keep hitting F8 and choose Safe Mode with networking. Once you're started in safe mode, Google Malwarebytes. Download and install it. Keep in mind that this virus is pretty pesky, it will continue to pop bogus messages up (even in safe mode) trying to get you to click on it and give them your credit card etc. DON'T CLICK ANY OF THE BOXES, NOT EVEN CANCEL OR CLOSE. Drag the boxes off to the side and out of the way while you install\update\run Malwarebytes. Clicking the messages just seems to make it worse and more fierce. It took me a couple of tries, but i finally got it updated and ran a quick scan. Malwarebytes found 23 infected items, which of course you remove. After that I ran Spybot search and destroy (another program you should have, updated of course), and it found 1 more infected item. Just as a precaution, I ran symantec anti virus scan for an hour and it found nothing. So it's safe to assume that the first 2 programs got it. Good Luck!!
