|Hi there, I have this virus that just won't go away we have tried everything we can think of to get rid of it but nothing works so far. I have done a little research and have found similar viruses but they are all 4+ years old posts.|
What it starts off doing is popping up with this disk error spam thing just like a rouge virus. But what sounds like commercials started to play but nothing was open to play on. I checked the anti-virus (etrust) and it doesn't see anything so what ever it is is can walk right past it. I booted into safe mode and ran a couple of malware removers. Housecall, MBAM, Trojan Remover, Spybot S&D and they all found stuff except Trojan Remover which was a BIG shock because Trojan Remover is perfect for removing viruses like this, resetting policies and such that the others don't do so well at. After all the scans were done I looked in the task manager and saw 2 iexplorer.exe tasks running but there was no IE open so I killed them but they came back a minute later and kept coming back. I was still in safe mode when this was going on which I have never seen any virus run in safe mode like that. We have tried everything we can think of to get rid of this thing but so far no luck. I can't think of what else to do but reformat it but I thought I would ask and see if anyone has any suggestions to help get rid of this thing.
What I think it is a backdoor virus but I am not 100% sure of that.
Thanks for the help
