WINAD Malware RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi, I am running Windows 7 and I get a message from ADAware Anniversary that I have an infection, WINAD ... I have tried everything I can to remove it. I have tried MRT, Adaware says that it will remove after a reboot but doesnt.

    Please help.

    Because I am running Win7, OneCare does not work...

  • Download the trial of NOD32 from www.eset.com or run the online scanner - http://www.eset.com/onlinescan/

  • Hi Jim,

    unfortunately neither approaches worked (did not detect anything ...). Any other thoughts?

  • There are manual removal instructions here - http://www.2-spyware.com/remove-winad.html The RC of Windows 7 is due in about ten days so you will be formatting your drive anyway if this doesn't work.
