    The newer version of Combofix will do it. This one will mess with your URL’s so you may have to attempt this downoad several times. Older versions of Combofix wouldn’t even run. Hijackthis won’t run. SpybotSD won’t run. The MSIVX rootkit seems to be pretty nasty.

    Brain2000 thank you, one thousand times for the post. I tried 5 different antiviruses and no one worked… ComboFix did the trick. BTW after running the combofix finally I also got rid of the Google Redirection virus/issue.

    Thanks for the info… combofix took care of the problem.

    One other tip! I couldn’t get the program launched becasue the MSIVXcount rootkit virus blocked it from running as with my other removal programs… Just rename the executable from combofix.exe to xxcombofix.exe and then right click to properties. Select to run in a 2000 windows compatability mode. … then MSIVX = Dead!

    WooT, google works again :)

    Yep, combifix worked and now my machine runs like it was doused with molasses. It automatically installs STOPzilla and then you have to figure out how to get it to run like it used to.

    The cure is worse than the disease. The virus didn’t slow my system down but was only a distraction. Combifix has turned my system into a boat anchor.

    I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone.

    Sounds like you ran the wrong combofix. That’s why I posted the link. Be careful where you get it from. Only get it from BleepingComputer or ForoSpyware. All other sites can be fake.
