  2. Virus...NOOOOO!

    Then its not a virus, i thought its a little strange that a virus was still going in safe mode. But i dont know what to suggest it could be? Are you using the same pc to connect to the internet, just with a linux partition?

  3. HELP! Anti-Virus 2010 Virus

    Well a buddy of mine works in my companies IT department and got a laptop in today with an epic virus. I've personally never seen one like this. The user downloaded "Anti-Virus 2010" thinking it was an anti-virus but its in fact a virus.

    Malware, Onecare, Spybot have not only been unsuccessful but were in fact deleted from the OS the second they were launched by the virus. Its also deleted all past restore points. Does anyone have ANY idea how to beat this thing without doing a clean install?

    BOOT X: VIRUS (BIOS VIRUS, HARDWARE VIRUS, RAM VIRUS, BOARD VIRUS) PLEASE HELP

    Some of you might already heard of this virus, so I'am just gonna tell what it did, what did i did, and what happened in order.

    Yesterday my PC boot was ****, basically it told me that it couldn't boot, Windows just let me open CMD and couple of other things, when I tried CMD because I thought simply my SSD worn out, I opened DISKPART and noticed the root of CMD was X (it should be C:/) I disconnected my HDD and I thought it was weird and told a friend to come over with a fresh flash USB because I wanted to recover my files from the disks (I have a 128gb SSD and 1TB HDD), he came over and we ran a flash version of Windows, we could access my drives, we were transfering some of my files into a different USB and suddenly Windows told me that the remaining files I was transfering to my USB weren't there anymore, we went an checked the drive in the "This PC" tab and C:/ was completly gone, the only thing that was there was: the USB with the flash, my own USB, and the Boot (X) disk (which was a partition of the C:/ drive), so my SSD was suddenly gone, we had some utilities in one of those USBs (dont remember which) and we tried executing Recuva and CrystalDiskInfo, instead of them apps opening we just received the "this file isn't located here anymore do you wanna erase it" I can't remember the exact message but it happens whenever you try to open a direct link of an app and the app isn't there anymore.

    So after this we thought that the PC was absolutely bricked, my SSD was gone, and both USB (including the one that was running Windows) were both infected and probably if we reeboted the PC it wouldn't boot anymore, we disconnected the GPU and the Internet PCIe wi-fi card in my PC (I don't have Ethernet and also my Motherboard doesn't have wi-fi by default) so we rebooted to see if we could flash the BIOS or something, we rebooted and not even the BIOS screen showed, just the "Insert appropiate BOOT device" message, so we took the CMOS battery of the motherboard off and both RAMS (16GB dual-channel) so the PC could not boot, then inserted one stick of RAM, then we took a different and clean USB, connected it to a different and clean laptop and downloaded the lastest firmware for my motherboard (Gigabyte A520M-H) right after that we remembered that we had a HDD disk with WinterOS just laying around, we disconnected the SSD and connected the hard drive with the OS, and it booted up but we saw lots of process that weren't native from Windows and the ones that were Windows native were consuming lots of resources, so then we knew that this virus survived the new firmware, so we tried out best running antiviruses and Windows Defender but nothing got detected, we rebooted again and opened Task Manager once again, we didn't saw any weird processes so we thought maybe the PC was clean, we inserted the PCIe Wi-fi card, GPU and the remaining RAM stick, he left and I continued using my PC normally (without any of the 2 drives I had, just the one that was clean and just laying around disconnected) after like 3 hours of just watching Youtube I went to the PC and turned it off, noticed it was taking a long time to turn off but I waited and decided to boot up again to see what was up, well, THE EXACT SAME THING AT THE START, like Windows couldn't boot and just let me like open CMD and couple of other stuff.

    Right now my whole PC is disconnected, you can do your research on this virus (even though it doesnt have a lot of info on the Internet) but its like you can get rid of it, it goes into your devices firmware, into the memory of your USB devices (mouse, keyboard) and I've read some cases of guys that found the virus on the router or something like that.

    What should I do?, I suppose lots of stuff in my house are infected and I'am going to install new firmware on my router and do a factory reset, but it seems useless, I just can't use my PC anymore, it scares me, anything will be of great help, I just want to game again.
