Alright so I just got infected by a virus named Brontok recently, AGAIN. I know the history about this virus, a female in my country made it but anyway.. I got infected by this virus 3 times now on the first time I managed to remove it by running a .bat command which I compile from gathering info online but I cant remember it now. On my second time I just reinstalled my Windows because I can't be bothered. Now on my third im not planning on reinstalling my windows, because I have tons of games/movies/work files.. so if anyone know how to get rid of it please share.
Thanks, ordinary anti-virus won't work.
Structure of Brontok:
- Whenever opening a folder it creates a fake .exe file with a folder icon named after the folder you opened.
- After some time it gets annoying and messes up the system file, not sure exactly.
I believe it wrote something on the registry to do all this, Anti Virus could only pick up those fake folder .exe and delete them but eventually they will return. So does anyone know any good software to fix the system registry?
