Googleupdate.exe virus removed? Rkill installation failed

March 26, 2012 at 22:01:43
Specs: Windows 7
Hi. I've been up 4 hours to try to fix my computer, and I'd like you to help me find out if I still have a virus, cause my computer is acting all weird. I'm unable to uninstall google chrome, and when I try to launch it I get a question to update adobe flash player. My computer feels a lot slower than usual. Also, when I try to launch rkill I get three "installation failed" messages. Please help me, I have invaluable school work on my computer that I can't afford to lose. (I should have bought an external HDD). Thanks in advance.

Btw, I used these programs to try to terminate googleupdate.exe (worked the first couple of times, not anymore though)
tdsskiller (works)
malwarebytes (works)

I'm gonna get some sleep so I won't respond the following 10 hours. Please help me!

Try the rkill.scr or the rkill.exe Sounds like your memory is bad or your disk is dirty or failing. Or viruses. who knows, you have to do the leg work.

I get the same errors when using .scr and .exe, however this time it actually found something: C:\Windows\sysWOW64\wbem\wmiprvse.exe

So as you can see I still am infected with viruses.

Edit: I use Malwarebytes and Microsoft security essentials to remove viruses, but every time i reboot I get new viruses. Sigh.

Edit nr 2: I downloaded registry booster and after this rkill doesn't get "installation failed" messages. I don't want to get my hopes up too much though...

Edit nr 3: Yeah I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up... Microsoft security just found a trojan and now the scan has crashed I think, nothing is happening.

rkill is not very accurate in my experiences with it. You ended up killing a legitimate windows process. rkill should only be used when there is a malware windows that will not close or let you run any exicutibles. that's why there is a .com and .scr version of the program. Have you tried superantispyware? how about an online virus scanner like the bitdefender one If not you could try to read some information over at
