Cryptor Virus

Post by LarryWms3 on 7th September 2009, 6:59 pm

My daughter's computer began exhibiting strange desktop and continuous spam pop ups. AVG had somehow been disabled and when a scan is run it shows the Cryptor virus, and is virtually impossible to remove. Can you help?

Please download the current version of HijackThis from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

  • Double click and run the installer.
  • It will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\hijackthis.exe
  • After installing, you should get the user agreement, press accept and Hijack This will run.
  • Select Do a system scan and save a log file. This will open a notepad file of everything Hijack This found, copy and paste it back here.
