Windows 7: Trying to get rid of virtool:win32/obfuscator.xz

Trying to get rid of virtool:win32/obfuscator.xz

Read a couple threads and got a little head start. I ran Adwcleaner and am attaching the log from that and currently running TFC. I want to make sure its 100% gone and any other malware too. Would the next step be running an ESET scan?

The CKFiles report detects cracked software and/or cracking tools on the computer.

VirTool:Win32/Obfuscator detections are programs/files modified to prevent detection by AntiVirus/AntiMalware scanners. From working on a few cases where VirTool:Win32/Obfuscator was detected, noticed that cracks, keygens and serials were an issue.

Besides being illegal, cracked software is a prime source for infecting your system, as malware authors prey on users looking to circumvent software protection mechanisms.

This forum, as well as other reputable malware removal forums, do not support the use of illegal software, as our help may be construed as aiding copyright violations. Therefore, if you wish to receive our help, you must remove all cracked software and/or any cracking tools from the computer. Not playing by these rules may result in your being banned from this forum.

When done removing the cracked software and /or cracking tools, run CKScanner once again, and post the new CKFiles.txt in your reply.

Thank you, and do stay away from cracked/pirated software. Otherwise, your system will get infected again.

Not, please run the online scanner... (This may take a while, so run the following when you have the time.)

The ESET Scanner is implemented as an ActiveX control, so it is best run on Internet Explorer.
Right click the IE shortcut and select: Run as Administrator

Next, download: Free Online Virus Scanner | ESET

On the ESET website, click on: Run ESET Online Scanner
Click: Start

When asked, allow the add-on to be installed
Click: Start again

On the next prompt, Computer Scan Settings, uncheck: Remove found threats
Next, click on: Advanced Settings



Make sure these options are checked:
  • Scan for potentially unwanted applications
  • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
  • Enable Anti-Stealth Technology
Click: Scan




When the scan is completed, if threats are found, in the Scan Results prompt:
  • Click on: List of threats found
  • Click on: Export to text file
  • Save to the Desktop and name it ESET Scan Results
  • Click on: Back
  • Place a check on: Uninstall application on close
  • Click on: Finish, and close the program.
Please provide the ESET report in your reply to determine if any further action is necessary.
