Preferred Solution: Manually Update AVP Tool Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool Signature Databases

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The Good
The tool is compatible with all popular Windows editions from XP to 8/8.1 (32- and 64-bit architecture type). It is very easy to initialize a scan job, regardless of the user's experience with virus removal tools.

Nevertheless, it is possible to adjust settings regarding the scan scope, severity, action on threat detection, and self-defense.

Virus detection ratio was excellent in our tests.

All program activity can be studied in log files.

Multiple languages are supported.

It is free to use.

The Bad
As previously mentioned in the section with performance results, we encountered multiple issues when attempting to conduct scan jobs on Windows 8.1 Pro. The app frequently popped up errors and crashed.

The estimated remaining time for scan jobs was not accurate.

RAM consumption was significant during scan tasks.

The scan job was very slow in our tests.

The Truth
Unless you're faced with a heavily malware-infected computer, Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool is a great tool to occasionally run scans, thanks to its terrific virus detection ratio results. Otherwise, you should probably look for something speedier.

Hi Petrovic

Thanks for the info. I'm using KIS 2015 and also find whilst scanning my PC that the RAM usage is very high, however I think Kaspersky is one of the best and fully trust their product. I've used the Kaspersky Virus Removal tool many years ago and it saved my laptop.

Okay, so this afternoon in school, I was trying to remove a stupid "search.fast-find.net" virus that I contracted some how. I am a techy so I am not stupid about sites I go to either.

Anyways, while trying to remove it, I used Kaspersky's free virus removal tool. Once it scanned it said I needed to restart to remove the infection (it did find the virus).

So I restarted. Once I did, windows kept on hanging up at the boot screen where the little dots grow & swirl.

I have tried system restore, safe mode, start-up repair, and nothing. I am not able to get past that boot screen on safe mode either.

When I use safe mode to see where it hangs, it is at:
C:/Windows/System32/Drivers/CLASSPNP.SYS

SO, I tried going into recovery mode and using the command prompt to rename it:
C:/Windows/System32/Drivers/CLASSPNP.SYS CLASSPNP.OLD

But the result I get it "The system cannot find the path specified".

Is there anyway to restore just that file.

***I HAVE ABOUT 1000 PHOTOS ON THERE THAT I NEED FOR MY PORTFOLIO FOR COLLEGE NEXT YEAR SO I NEED THESE FILES BACK!!!!!***

I normally scan regularly with Malwarebytes and Symantec Endpoint Protection 11, and I haven't found anything with those recently. I occasionally use the Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool for a "second opinion", but I have had false positives found with it (For example, I did an avast! scan and SEP11 quarantined some files from avast mid scan as Downloaders as false positives, then Kaspersky found the same files and said I had multiple banload trojans incorrectly as well).

Yesterday I downloaded the most recent version of the Virus Removal Tool and it picked up a file with the pathname "C:\System.sav\util\RESBETA\RESDETECT.EXE" and said that it was "Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Banload.bmso". I searched for the file in my system and RESDETECT.exe has a nvidia logo, and it was created and last modified 11/14/2007, and it was last accessed 2/24/2008 at 6 a.m., when I don't think my PC was even on since I am rarely on my PC in the morning.

So what should I do? Should I delete the file, or ignore it? I don't want to delete anything from the System.sav folder without knowing that I must, and based on context clues, it seems like it is an auto resolution detecting program. Help as soon as possible is appreciated, as I want to use this computer as little as I can until I know it is safe.

Thank you.

Hello,

My friend's laptop is infected with the MS Removal Tool virus. Most googling led me to this tutorial
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-ms-removal-tool

On step 7, it directs us to uncheck "Use a proxy server for your LAN".
However, this box is already NOT checked when I open this screen. Internet shows that it is connected to our network via wifi, but webpages will not load.
As such, I used my computer and an USB to transfer RKILL.exe as an ulterior option stated in guide.

RKILL finds and terminates:
C:\windows\SysWOW64\InfDefaultInstall.exe
C:\windows\SysWOW64\runonce.exe

As internet is still not working, I used the USB to transfer mbam-setup.exe as well. Install program. I then attempt to update to no avail.

So what other things must I do to regain internet connection and thus update mbam to fully remove MS Removal Tool? Does it HAVE to be updated (found 1 file. I don't remember what)?

Thank you for any insight!

A:MS Removal Tool Virus. Can't Update MBAM

My friend's laptop had Webroot AntiVirus on his system already and had been recently updated (no need for internet!). I substituted this into procedure and seemed to have fixed the problem(no spam at reboot). If anyone knows if this will be insufficient in the long run, please let me know. Still food for thought if other people encounter same roadblock.

Still no internet, but I think I remember running across someone saying that system restores can cause this problem (The person using the laptop at time of infection attempted this before I took over). So I will poke around the interwebs to see how to resolve this hopefully unrelated problem.

If not, thank you for the guide! Definitely helped me get my bearings on my first virus purge! Was lost without it. Thanks! ^^

Hi Guys

For the first month this year i have not received September's removal tool update on

from Microsoft but it's unusual that i have had nothing so far this week.
Am i missing something here because i have been expecting it to download automatically

Already installed this update on my Windows 10, 7 and Vista computers but not on my XP.
Thanks in advance.

Okay, I have a huge problem... And I have reason to believe that it is caused by windows new malicious software removal tool update. First, my dads laptop (hard wired to the internet), suddenly quit connecting to the internet. No browsers (IE or Firefox) would connect. I checked our dsl modem, and it showed his laptop as connected. So I went to my desktop computer (wireless) and I could connect to the internet just fine. A few mins later, I get a message saying that a new update (malicious software removal tool) has just been installed, please restart your computer.... Well, I was in the middle of something, so I didn't right away. I just restarted it, and now I'm having the same problem my dad is. I'm still connected wirelessly to the router/modem. My linux laptop works fine, it still connects perfectly. Can anyone please tell me what is happening. I have a web server on my desktop computer that I really need to have up. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Nick.

A:malicious software removal tool update problem!

EDIT: Sorry, but something strange just happened. I shut down Zone Alarm Internet Security Suite, and everything started working. So now I know, with my computer at least, that Zone Alarm is the problem. Anyone know why? Oh, and my boss at work said that he was having problems connecting to the internet with his computer (dial up). He said he called his ISP and they told him that it might be a problem with zone alarm. This happened just yesterday, before I had this problem. And now that I think about it, he might be having the same problem as I and my father are having. So, I'm guessing it is something wrong with zone alarm. Maybe a faulty update?

Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool for Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 - August 2015 (KB890830) first appeared on my laptop running Windows 8 on 16th August, which I installed. It reappeared on 20th and 23rd. I hid it after that but each day since, a new update has appeared for a previous month successively; so, July, June, May. In desperation today, I restored the August update and installed it again. But it has not updated. Update history status displays 'Succeeded' for all dates, however. I seem to remember an issue at the time of its original installation that indicated all did not go well, which is why I installed it when it next reappeared. This is the second occasion on which the Malicious Software Removal Tool update has caused me a problem. I have created a new system restore entry and selected particular groups of updates or a single update since then so that I am in better control. I carried out System Restore on the previous occasion and wonder if that is what I must resort to once more and wonder whether other users have had similar issues?

In desperation today, I restored the August update and installed it again. But it has not updated. Update history status displays 'Succeeded' for all dates, however. I seem to remember an issue at the time of its original installation that indicated all did not go well, which is why I installed it when it next reappeared. This is the second occasion on which the Malicious Software Removal Tool update has caused me a problem. I have created a new system restore entry and selected particular groups of updates or a single update since then so that I am in better control. I carried out System Restore on the previous occasion and wonder if that is what I must resort to once more and wonder whether other users have had similar issues?



Are you still experiencing the issue after a couple days? I have not experienced such issue on the mentioned KB.

Hi there,

New to the forum and some challenge navigating topics, so please forgive if this has been covered.

Following is a history of recent unsuccessful attempts
1. downloaded Malwarebytes, ran full scan, found three items, removed and rebooted. no appearance of Virus.

2. Next day, reappearance of virus

3. could not re-run Malwarebytes.

4. Renamed exe file to alternate on alternate computer with flash drive. Could not execute

5. downloaded again, and try to execute with random name from flash drive. Could not execute.

6. Cannot run, regedit; command.com; devmgmt.msc or cmd

7. separately downloaded dds; combofix and win32kdiag; "application cannot be executed." "notepad.exe is infected"
appreciate the support,
IrishO

A:Security Tool Virus (System Tool 2011)

Hello IrishO ,Let's disable the main file manually so you can run some tools. What I want you to look for is in Application Data (If using XP). There will be a folder, with a file in it of the same "name". This will appear random, but it has a pattern. Look for letters and numbers in this order: lower case, upper case, lower case, upper case, lower case, then 5 random numbers. For example:Folder -----> pEeHl02508\pEeHl02508.exe <-----file insideDelete the folder. Now, if you still have no access to the internet, download the following tool to a flash drive from a different computer, then put it on the infected one and run it.This tool is not a toy. If used the wrong way you could trash your computer. Please use only under direction of a Helper. If you decide to do so anyway, please do not blame me or ComboFix.* Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix. IF YOU USE AVG IT MUST BE UNINSTALLED OR THIS WILL NOT RUN.1. Download this file - combofix.exe http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe 2. Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.3. When finished, it will produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply please.Note:Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall.If you have trouble running it the first time, then rename ComboFix.exe to IrishO.exe and try again.Thanks,tea

Hi All

I think I have the MS Removal Tool Virus on 2 pc's - my main pc runs Vista.

I've tried almost everything including:

> Rkill - which now doesn't find anything - although it did initially.
> Malwarebites - which now doesn't find anything - although it did initially.
> CCleaner, Adaware, Spybot & Avast - don't find anything
> I've tried to delete the taskmanager

I can access the internet in safe mode with networking and to a degree in normal start up, but the pc is still infected and not running particularly well.

I also tried running combofix and it generated the report below.

I'm desperate to fix this and really need somebody to talk me through it step by step as I'm not particularly pc literate and been trying to fix this for the past week almost constantly.

Please help!

Thanks

I got hit with the security tool spyware thing and I followed all the steps from this page
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-security-tool

I was downloading something and the download stops in the middle. Then a few minutes later a Security Tool scan pops up. I knew immediately it was a virus so I shut down the laptop. I used my another uninfected laptop and found the site I mentioned above went through all the steps in safe mode.

Using malware antivirus I was able to remove 3 infected files but after I restart the computer System Tool is still on my computer.
Every time I restart regularly(not under safe mode)there is a prompt:
####################################################################
User Account Control
Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer?
Program name: malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Verified publisher: Malwarebytes Corporation
File origin: Hard drive on this computer
Yes No
##################################################################
I restarted a few times and tried yes and no, same thing happens.
My background changed to "Warning? you're in danger! Your computer is infected with sypware...."
and system tool scan pops up.

What should I do now?

I have Windows7.

I am infected with the MS Removal Tool. When I boot up in regular mode, the program is open, and appears to be running. it has changed my background, and it will not allow me to open any applications.
I followed the directions on the following link, and everything appeaed to be successful, but when I rebooted the virus was still there.

Now I am trying to follow these instructions, but I am stuck at the point where I get the GMER scan. I downloaded the pogram and opened it successfully. Then it starts to scan. Then i get the blue screen that says something bad has happened and windows is shutting down my computer to protect it. I tried to scan 2 more times, both ending the same way, so i am unable to complete the GMER scan.
