AV Security suite beat NOD32

Post by n_spect_r on 14th June 2010, 9:10 am

My inlaws are running a Dell PC with Win Vista and NOD32. They have an infection of AV Security Suite. I checked the NOD32 update and it is the most current release, a bit irritated that the infection got past. I read through various posts and pages and found several references to manual removal and registry edits. Booted in safe mode with networking. Removed the browser proxy settings but when I looked for the Documents and Settings folder it was not there. I disabled the network card and ran Malwarebytes last night, was running when I left their house. Will return this afternoon to see what the results are. My main concern is that I am running the same NOD32 on my laptop and home PC, if this program won't stop viruses what would be a better choice?

Hello, and welcome to GeekPolice.

Please note the following information about the malware forum:
  • Only Tech Officers, Global Moderators, Administrators, and Malware Advisors are allowed to give advice on removing malware from your computer.
  • From this point on, please do not make any more changes to your computer; such as install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc. - unless advised by the staff I noted above.
  • Please do not ask for help elsewhere (in this site or other sites). Doing so can result in system changes, which may not show up in the logs you post.
  • If you have already asked for help somewhere, please post the link to the topic you were helped.
  • We try our best to reply quickly, but for any reason we do not reply in two days, do one of two things:

    Reply to this topic with the word BUMP, or

  • Lastly, keep in mind that we are volunteers, so you do not have to pay for malware removal. Persist in this topic until its close, and your computer is declared clean.

Seems as if it got past NOD32, because it was installed by choice, instead of accidentally.

Please visit this webpage for a tutorial on downloading and running ComboFix:
