If the normal AV's aren't cutting it give MSE a try. If nothing else it's a good experiment

# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.

# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

First try ComboFix. It never damaged my computer.

You could try some online scanners - eset NOD32 v4 ... kaspersky ... panda active scan. I've had luck with all of those.

Combofix will not work with Win7.


This application is to be used by those who have been instructed in it's use and how to use it...it's not a 'toy' .... it's a serious application and can render your computer useless if you don't have guided help.

General Discussion
If your system was infected with a virus, would you ?
Would you, attempt to disinfect and clean or would you just format and reinstall Windows ? I guess it depends on how serious the situation is, but isn't reinstalling always best due to the fact it wipes everything clean ?
