  1. PC infected with malware


    I recently ran kmspico.exe and couple other unverified programs(of course by mistake) and now my pc's loaded with malware and virus. I reset my pc completely but I still think there are virus files saved which weren't deleted as I had opted to kept personal files. I don't wan't to run that malwarebytes program cause I once did it and it set my registry on fire. *cry Any solution to manually remove it?*Huh
    I am running Windows 10 Pro 32-bit.

    :)

    power up error

    One of two things has happened:

    1- Your PC is infected by malware.

    2- Your PC was infected by malware, your anti-malware software successfully removed the critical part of the infection, and some non-critical parts of the infection were left behind.

    In either case, a good place to start is to install and run the free version of Malwarebytes, which you can find

    here
    . Malwarebytes is very effective and finding and eliminating malware.

    Best to wipe the system completely and reinstall without the infected personal files,

    (of course accidentally installing a legitimate copy of Windows and not accidentally installing some malware ridden fake Key management server ).

    Once install is complete, and fully activated, you can run antimalware procedures on the infected files offline and only transfer completely safe files back to the system

    PC infected with malware

    After the re-install, stick with Win Defender or get another Free anti-virus other than NPAV.

  9. I assume that you assume me to be using a pirated version of windows because of kmspico, but note that my windows is already activated and clean. For that matter I didn't install kmspico it came with Gta sa(yeah this one's pirated) and I accidently ran it not knowing what it is.
    About wiping personal files, my whole family's files reside in it and if I wipe it they would wipe me out. Thanks anyways.

  10. NPAV wasn't free I bought it. And everyone is a nerd enough to not trust Windows defender for security.

    Paying for the NPAV cause I've seen some Bad Malware in some of the cracks ? Heck I've seen enough problems caused by Legit versions.

    Run Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware, then rKill and one or more of the others listed all the way at the bottom of the page Download RKill. Save all the Personal files to another drive, then low level format the drive with http://hddguru.com/software/HDD-LLF-...l-Format-Tool/

    Disconnect the power and hold the on button down for 30 seconds, wait a few minutes then do it again. Connect everything back and make the Fresh Install using a GENUINE Microsoft ISO. I'll admit to being an ex-pirate and I spent thousands of hours a Year downloading and testing torrents for Malware and seen some stuff so Dangerous it's Not worth taking Chances with any Personal information on a drive that's been infected.
