Off Topic: w32.myzor virus RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • When I open IE Version 7, it tells me that i have this w32.myzorfk@yf virus and to download the spyware.  well i knew better than to do that and decided to do an internet search on how to remove the virus.  well i've been reading blogs and searching for 3 days now.  i tried the smitfraud program and it does not work with Windows Vista in which I have. does anyone have any suggestions, had this problem, or anything. i'm trying to avoid using the geeksquad if i can do this myself.

  • hmm it has gotten in already sir, how long this issue been occuring in your system ( pop-ups or slowdown in the system ) quite often is uses fake av prompts telling your to download it in order to remove such infections which they "will" deploy on your system the moment you agree or download the said program and start updating such.

    I would recommend initial resolution as for system restore if it hasnt gone beyond a week ( if its possible ) you also if its not possible to system restore. please delete entries for the this folders which you can access since youre in vista press the windows flag in your keyboard hold it and press "R" , type prefetch and it should open the said folder delete as much as you can from it

     

    2. temp

    3. %temp%

     

    Delete all others in this said folders try to delete as many as you can

     

    also go safemode if you do have windows defender in your system run it through on full scan that should take care of it
