Antivirus - has taken control

Post by holycowWTF on Wed 03 Mar 2010, 4:03 pm

I have been reading your other threads on removing this beast. I can't download from the net period. It blocks google chrome, and controls IE. I can disable proxy but it comes back immediately. I have tried Malwarebytes, OTL, HiJack this and as soon as the window opens to run the program it is shut down and closed immediately. Every program I rename and transfer from my laptop is shut down. Is there something I am missing to get these programs to run? I am in normal start up - is there a safe mode or something? Anytime I try the "run" feature that is shut down as well.

  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console

Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.
