W32 Blaster Worm


My computer has caught this worm and is driving me crazy, it starts with the spyware protection software which tells me I have many viruses. Im aware its a scam but i cant seem to resolve the problem in safe mode using spybot & uniblue registry cleaner.

Please could someone help me,
Thank you

First off, what is the name of this fake spyware protection software? There are various programs that target specific fake AV/Spyware programs available, in most instances.

Is there any chance you can roll back 2 or 3 points past the infection point?

Try d/l and running this:

Blaster Removal tool

W32.Blaster.Worm Removal Tool | Symantec

That's a start but depending on what you have, it'll probably require more in depth cleaning then that.

Other tools to consider running: MS Malicious software removal tool

Norton Power Eraser



All these tools are free and if you cannot run them in regular mode, try running them in safe mode. You should do full system scans while disconnected from the internet as most malware tends to "call home for help" if it's trying to be deleted

Malwarebytes' may be able to find and delete part of it. Post the .txt log when it's finished scanning.

Glad you got it sorted.

Your next step is to do a full system scan with an AV and with Malwarebytes just to be sure there are no traces left.

Many people in the forum run MSE.

Virus, Spyware & Malware Protection | Microsoft Security Essentials

Also, remember to update the malwarebytes definitions regularly (they release new ones daily) and scan on a regular basis.

I had something like that, ended up giving it to my brother to sort out, and got myself a new laptop. After 6 months he has finally got around to sorting it out (he also fixes Amegias), so I am hoping to get that one back soon .

Hope your rid of this evil worm!
