A Virus that deletes/disables virus scanners
Posted 24 September 2010 - 07:02 PM
The second i saw it popup i immediately went to control panel >add-remove programs and ran the uninstaller
ran spybot search and destroy
started scanning then boom spybot process died and the spybot executable was deleted or sent to the twilight zone when i try to run it agin via the link on the desktop i get
"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
So far i have also tryd
everset < just to see what processes where running, it died none the less
i next tryed malwarebytes i let it update then started scanning
So far i have determined that when ANY program starts to scan memory to see what processes are running the exact same aforementioned stuff happens with the scanning process being killed and the executable being deleted or sent to the twilight zone with the link giving an "access denied" style error when ran.
should i kill the windows partiotion and reinstall?
