Trojan.Dropper.BCMiner removal

Hello people, I am presently dealing with a trouble of removing Trojan.Dropper.BCMiner from my computer. This is my third day of battle against this virus and so far found no luck to beat them. I have tried suggestions for different sites and forums but none seems to help me remove BCMiner virus.

I have been using security software like AVG and Malwarebytes. Both program detects and removes Trojan.Dropper.BCMiner but after a while, it just reincarnates itself. This Trojan also disables Microsoft Security Essentials so my computer is almost exposed to other attacks.

I also noticed that my searches are being redirected to other web pages, which has suspicious address. It is still not clear to me whether this hijacking issue is closely related to Trojan.Dropper.BCMiner infection. Maybe, different kinds of malware are eating up my computer piece by piece. I am worried that one time it will become useless. What I am trying to prevent is to go through a reformat/reinstall process because I have too many files to backup if that would be the last solution.

Please suggest a good Trojan.Dropper.BCMiner removal tool. I need to delete this malware as soon as possible.

Many thanks,
Abra

    BCMiner Trojan is not an ordinary type of infection that can be eliminated by a simple virus scan. There have been some discussions about this Trojan on several forums. Most of them attribute the infection to a rootkit Trojan. Thus, if rootkit is involved, the first remedy is to run a scan using TDSSKiller.

    After running the rootkit remover, it is now time to remove the threat itself. Though this is relatively new malware and trojan.dropper.bcminer removal tool is nowhere to be found, you can use a combination of tools. First, I can recommend Malwarebytes AntiMalware. Since the signature came from this program, I believe that it can also eliminate the Trojan easily after getting rid of the rootkit.

    After scanning the PC with those tools, it is your option to run another stand-alone virus remover such as Norton Power Eraser, Sysclean, and Stinger.

    As of July 30, 2012, Malwarebytes is completely ineffective in removing this virus. It (and AVG) will recognize and claim to do a removal, but the virus keeps regenerating.
