TheGameVirus

How do i remove it? I installed it purposefully BTW on virtual Windows XP.
Just wanted to know what removes it. So far ,i have tried Avast 5, MSE and Norton Internet Security 2010 and they all were unsuccessful. Any ideas?

Did you get hold of the one that was released on a private tracker recently?

According to VirusTotal, the file is detected by 4 AV solutions right now. Try one of them to see if it works:

Let's see if we can take care of most of it ....

Download the HostsXpert 4.3 - Hosts File Manager.
  • Unzip HostsXpert 4.3 - Hosts File Manager to a convenient folder such as C:\HostsXpert
  • Click HostsXpert.exe to Run HostsXpert 4.3 - Hosts File Manager from its new home
  • Click "Make Hosts Writable?" in the upper right corner (If available).
  • Click Restore Microsoft's Hosts file and then click OK.
  • Click the X to exit the program.
  • Note: If you were using a custom Hosts file you will need to replace any of those entries yourself.

Next,

Flush you DNS cache
Most DNS clients cache the results of name resolution requests. This speeds up name resolution if multiple lookups are done to the same address, such as is common when browsing the web.
Sometimes a bad DNS entry will be cached and you will need to either flush the DNS cache to get rid of it, or wait up to 24 hours for it to be dropped from the cache automatically.

Open a command prompt....from the Start menu, select Run > In the box/"open field", enter cmd.exe
enter ipconfig /flushdns press 'enter'

Now run MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware (be sure it's updated)
|MG| Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.41 Download
* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
* At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location. Copy and Paste that log into your next reply.

When i installed that virus, i had enabled NIS 2010 and it did not detect it during installation also. Today, i will try NOD32 and MBAM.

Well i tried Spyware Doctor first but unfortunately it didnt detect anything. So i uninstalled Spyware Doctor and downloading A-Squared now. Will post the results in 15mins.

Edit: Avast Anti Root Kit has detected it but no option to remove it.
