|I had this problem. It got really serious in my case. I felt a need to write a post about it on my web site. The entire text is below:|
A virus blocked access to my 250GB external USB hard drive.
Prevx 3.0 solved the problem while Avira Antivirus, Windows Defender, Mulwarebytes Anti-Malware all failed to detect anything.
I discovered the following folders and files on my USB drives: kure.exe, zeljko.exe, mirk.exe in folders “rane”, “mirk”.
I searched web for these file names and found them on the Prevx’s web site.
I was reluctant to download a new and unknown anti-virus or anti-malware software as I already had a running Avira free antivirus on the affected system (XP SP3 on Dell Inspiron 1525).
I found a review of Prevx on cnet.com. The cnet’s editors did not sound overexcited about Prevx. I learned that Prevx is a “behavior based”, hence its speed.
After additional scans by Avira Antivirus and Windows Defender detected no threats while I was still unable to access the USB hard drive, I downloaded Prevx.
The download took seconds. A “deep scan” lasted less than 10 minutes and detected 10 threats.
The main threat was sbeb.exe file sitting on my system drive.
It was invisible in the folder where Prevx indicated it was located.
Attention: Prevx found 3 threats that I recognized as false positives.
Removing infected files is possible only after purchasing Prevx license. Which I did.
Removal procedure worked fine.
Verdict: Prevx has an excellent clean interface, it is intuitive, fast, detects and provides solutions against very serious threats that other anti-viruses do not detect (loosing a 250GB USB hard drive is very serious). Prevx definitely stands out in comparison to other anti-virus software.
To make this post a bit more relevant on this web site, I note that the creators of Prevx know how to collect money. Indeed, it was a rare case when I was happy to pay for a software. Thus, we have a good product with good business practices.
