I have Panda Security so I am not affected. Since I use Google Chrome, instead of Internet Explorer, I have not got this
virus again. Â Make sure your computer is in Safe Mode with
Networking before you do anything to remove a virus.
I also use Superantispyware Free Edition.
Scans and removes viruses, adware and malware.
Also try this as a Thinkpoint removal tool :
or this :
Make sure you restart your computer in Safe Mode with Networking, before you download and scan to remove the virus.
( To start is Safe Mode with Networking : restart computer, hold down F8 key until the screen comes up, choose Safe Mode with Networking and then hit enter)
As soon as you log in to Windows, hit Ctrl+Alt+Del,
go to Processes and look for hotfix.exe' and click End Process.
Then go on file, new task and type in â€˜explorer.exeâ€™ to get to the internet,
(If an error message comes up then instead type in 'C:\Windows\explorer.exe" /G Everyone:F' enter that then try 'explorer.exe)
Now download this, to scan your computer, itâ€™s the best virus remover you can get for freeÂ http://filehippo.com/download_malwarebytâ€¦
(If link doesn't work type 'malware' in the search box and click on the first one ''malware bytes'')
Itâ€™s a reputable website that my internet company uses and this has helped me tons of times before. Download it and run it (itâ€™s free) (you might have to disable your pop up blocker at the top of the screen when downloading)
Perform quick scan (should take 10 to 20 mins)
(CLICK NO TO RESTART COMPUTER)
Go on quarantine (4th from the right column)
Then delete allÂ
Then restart your comp in normal mode.
I hope this helps =)
