    XP Computer might be infected with a Viues.

    Post by MrMario on Sun Nov 02, 2008 8:40 pm

    Today my computer is slow as hell. Takes awhile to load programs. I'm scanning and doing an ANTI Virus scan now so is there anything else I can do?

    Follow the Are You A Victim Of Malware Guide

    This guide is meant to assist as much as possible to route out virus related issues
    Some steps don't need to be followed however i would advise to perform an online scan or a full system scan or even a smart scan from Ad-aware.

    Regards

    Unfortunately Security Toolbar 7.1 is actually a Malware program which installs itself once your PC is infected

    1. Open Add/Remove Programs from Control Panel

    2. Uninstall IE security tools, There should be 3 or 4 rows of programs that need uninstalled, I cant remember the names off the top of my head

    3. Uninstall Windows security alert

    4. Reboot your PC

    The toolbar should now be gone from Internet Explorer Smile

    Regards

    You should be ok if you have followed the instructions above Very Happy

    With regards to F-Secure

    1. Download F-Secure

    2. Burn to a disc

    3. Reboot with the disc in the PC and follow the on screen instructions

    The disc will back up your PC and hopefully remove all threats from your PC. 😁

    Regards

    To scan for viruses using the Rescue CD, do the following:

    1. Insert the Rescue CD in your CD drive.

    2. Switch the computer on. After a few seconds, you should see a prompt that shows F-Secure Rescue CD.

    3. If you do not see the F-Secure Rescue CD screen, check that the computer can start from CD. To do this:

    a. Restart the computer.

    b. Press the BIOS options key while the computer starts. Usually the key is F1, F2, F10, F12 or DELETE. If none of these work, consult the documentation for the computer.

    c. Find the option that determines from which device the BIOS tries to find the operating system.

    d. Change the option so that the CD drive is searched first.

    e. Save the settings.

    f. Restart the computer.

    4. To start the Rescue CD, press ENTER.

    5. Use the arrow keys to select Next and press ENTER.

    6. Wait for the latest virus definition database to be downloaded from F-Secure. The download is complete when you see the End User License Agreement window.

    7. To read the agreement, press PAGEDOWN.

    8. Select Next and press ENTER.

    9. If you agree to the terms, select I Agree and press ENTER.

    10. Select which drives you want to scan.
    Master Boot Record is a small section that is located at the start of the disk. Because this section can be used to hide malware, we strongly recommend that you scan it.

    11. Select Start scan and press ENTER.

    12. When the scan is finished, press ENTER to see the scan report.

    13. If any malware were found, you can see which files were renamed. When you are ready to continue, select Next and press ENTER.

    14. Select Restart computer and press ENTER.

    15. Wait for 5 seconds for the computer to switch off. The computer restarts.

    16. If you see the same screen as you did in step 1, wait for 15 seconds for the computer to start normally.

    ***EDIT:
    To make this easier while offline i have made this into a PDF

    => Using F-Secure Rescue CD.PDF

    Regards
