Qooqlle virus has taken over my Windows 7

September 17, 2011 at 10:06:00
Specs: Windows 7
I have the qooqlle virus that has taken over. I have cleaned my PC & gone thru all the steps that I found on this site for my problem. I 1st removed ask geeves and restarted my PC. At this time my home page came up with qooqlle.com. So I manually tried to remove this qooqlle from the computer, but it still comes back every time I restart or shut down my PC. I have since researched and found that this is a virus that was started in 2010.
Please help me get this off my computer. I do not want to have to go back to original PC as it was when I got my PC 6 months ago.

The only sure way to get rid of some of that stuff is with a reload of the OS.
You got a virus from using bad practices. Reload the OS and get a good security suite and all the updates on and use a standard user account next time.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

What Jefro says is completely true and at times is the surest way of starting clean. If you have not tried it yet you can try one more possibility: Restart in Safe Mode with Networking (tap F8 continuously at start up and select from menu), download Malwarebytes and run this. If it installs, finds and removes the problem, then uninstall what ever antivirus you are currently using and install Avast (free version) and scan with that also. If you then feel that you are free of the infection then try to restart in normal mode. If you still have trouble than just bite the bullet and reload Windows.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

re-installing a fresh OS is only as a LAST RESORT. People do not realize how many programs you have installed nor if you still have access to those progs as they will ALL be gone once you reformat the drive.

Try these free utilities in the EXACT order:
1- rkill.exe
2- tdss killer
3- Malwarebytes
Don't reboot until the last scan is finished.

This might help. Manual removal of viruses is very difficult.
