A friend called me today to take a look at his computer. He thought he had a virus. Sure enough, he was infected by a malware that tells him that his computer is infected and that he needs to download a Antivir Solution Pro to kill the virus. He was smart enough not to download the program, however the malware has so infected his machine that it won't allow access to any web sites, disabled his Norton Antivirus, and even kills Task Manager. I started Windows XP in Safe mode and was able to conduct a Norton scan, but no viruses were discovered. I rolled back the System Restore to a week earlier and all worked well for about 5-10 minutes, but then the "system infected" dialogue boxes started show up. I searched the registry for Antivir Solution entries, but found none (probably because the actual program wasn't downloaded yet.) This is a really insideous bugger. Everytime it senses that you're trying to kill it, it works to protect itself. Any ideas on how to kill this thing?
