    Antivirus .NET

    Anyone have any experience removing this malware. It absolutely crushed my PC yesterday. My norton won't recognize it and I can't run live update because it says the disk is full. I tried googling for a solution but most pages are just adds for removal software and I'm not sure if any of them can be trusted. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    This looks like a good recipe for removal.

    Remove Antivirus .NET (Uninstall Guide)

    In addition, after the above is done, I'd recommend downloading and installing Microsoft Security Essentials

    Re: Antivirus .NET

    Just ran into this one, last week. Malwarebytes is your friend. Also, finding the correct process to kill is not too difficult with this one. Just look in your task manager for a process about 10 characters long, composed of just random letters. The one that I cleaned up called itself something like jdffirto3d.exe. Killing it doesn't solve the problem, but it gets rid of the annoying sys tray pop-up. One other thing to check, is your internet options for IE. It really messed with those, for me. Didn't touch firefox, though.

    I don't know if it was the same virus/spyware/etc but I had one several months ago that messed with the 'proxy' settings on both IE and Firefox.

    Symantec couldn't do anything, but Malwarebytes found it and took care of it. Had to go back and take care of the proxy settings myself though (obviously).

    yep, that's exactly what this one did to me. But, it didn't touch firefox for some reason.

    firefox uses a separate network connection setup than IE (and the rest of windows) does.

    Re: Antivirus .NET

    Thanks for the help. Back up and running this morning. I had tried the step by step instructions for removing it myself but task manager would close (or be hidden) whenever I clicked on the processes tab. Thankfully malwarebytes took care of the problem.

    Re: Antivirus .NET

    Another good idea is to have a backup admin account created on your pc to get rid of anything.

    Re: Antivirus .NET

    Youll most likely have to edit your registry for this one as well after malwarebytes cleans out the junk. There will be a reference to a junk file. Could have also put an entry in your msconfig startup list if you have admin rights on your user. Sometimes malwarebytes leaves those behind and they can creep back up on you again.

    Reg key is "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" you will see a call for some sort of junk file in most cases. hfjhjklh.exe as an example.

    Also, you will most likely have to reset IE after its over to its default configuration in order to clear the damage done to it. But only do this after you have completed the other steps. I remove crap like this weekly so its become second nature at this point.
