Regular Updates- Malware

OMG!!! I just got the worst malware computer I have seen. Here is what it does:

  • Disables Task Manager
  • Deletes MalwareBytes executable
  • Disables Anti-virus
  • Pop Up AntiVirus 2009 and there is no way to stop it.
  • Disables Explorer

What a frakking headache. I know that you, gentle reader, would simply reformat the drive and start over, but I like to go John McClain. I found this wonderful tool on BleepingComputer.com rkill.com which kills the malware process tree. Then by renaming mbam to winlogon I was able to get that installed and ran. Then I just ran my usual arsenal.

Why can’t we beat these scumware anti-virus jerks. I don’t get it.
