Dave Says: May 20th, 2010 at 7:29 pm I have just installed your NirLauncher on my PC and Microsoft Security Essentials immediately reported that: - rdpv.exe is Hacktool:Win32/Passview, and - iepv.exe Butch says: January 3, 2010 at 7:18 pmDownloaded the free software, wiped out the 2010 virus in minutes. I spent about 4 hours on it, since I couldn't browse I thought I still had it.

So far, just one item found.Thanks so much for this info!!!

And it just waste my time! corey says: March 27, 2010 at 1:56 pmalso part of the virus is ave.exe (kill the process tree) Joe says: April 19, 2010 at 4:16 amYes this is a tough virus.

You must delete this directory. It removed all but 2 items whcih it said had to be done at reboot. Certainly, all options and tools found useful to eliminate this unwanted program will be rendered useless. So try the following 1.

Thankfully, I didn't lose any files or programs during the re-install. Bob says: February 3, 2010 at 3:06 amWhoever put out this piece of s-- should be hung by the short hairs. No idea how long they will take to implement this though. As for the adware stuff, I wish every single system utility program maker was as nice as you are about letting people opt out of the crap they add.

And the AV developer cannot put too much whitelists, since it will be huge for users to download, especially if the user comes home from a long holyday and should apply CF disconnects your machine from the internet. Called spybot search and destroy. My first post {http:#25213639} is assuming that Combofix still won't run after being renamed before saving/before actually downloading the file. 0 LVL 47 Overall: Level 47 Anti-Virus Apps 36 Message

Karlis Says: September 18th, 2009 at 8:31 am Our product iNet Protector is constantly detected as malware. this content Large companies usually don't have any false positives problems, and even if there is a single case of false alert, the antivirus company will probably fix it very soon. BTW, a fine way to "appear" on google and alert users like me is to post in the AV software forums. And then, the antivirus software detects the function in your software that reads passwords, and then it thinks it is some sort of evil password-stealer software, and then it classifies it

Cheers! This is a great tool to quit that thing !! Luckily i can still get on the internet. weblink A BIG THANK YOU.

Its a lifesaver and prevents a lot of hair pulling when you have files on your system that Micro$oft Windows won't get rid of, no matter how many times you try There are a number of instances of IS2010.exe on the pc, search for them and delete them all. i cannot even put it in safemode.

scan out of your computer.Whatever it finds delete and then restart.

thankyou sooo much!!!!! :) matt says: January 11, 2010 at 5:46 amI got this and on my old laptop and now I can't even turn it on. I herd NOD32 is a well known decent anti-virus so perhaps getting your program listed as uninfected by them might fix some problems with smaller anti-virus companies..well its always worth a This thing is taking over fast. I'll always disable my antivir for your great tools PS : you can use that great web site http://www.virustotal.com/ to have suspicious files analyzed by 40 antivir...

What next? And AV software could have exceptions that for example a game is allowed to hook keyboard via DirectX while its running fullscreen or has focus. This is a very common problem on many systems, the task manager disabled is a very common virus/malware trick to stop you killing it. check over here I encountered with this prolblem a lot.

That will stop the shutdown process and leave you with an almost "free" computer. Malwarebytes was the key to removal. Can't even logon. Because virus wise the risk is low, the damage the infection has, isnt worth trying to remove manually.

Overall it is one of those issues that don't have clear and easy solution. As for preventing re-infection, I always have this reg file on my desktop and scattered around a few places in the computer just in case - And a great FREE anti I changed the date and my system automatically rebooted. but like you said developers don't have all day to be fixing other companies stuff ups that are directly affecting your app usage.For your own safety, please close this web browser

It was a file called e.exe in my Temp folder.McAfee didn't help at all with the rest.
