I picked up a Trojan on Movshare.com, called Vista Home Security 2011. Apparently its hit quite a lot of people recently, so there is a lot of stuff on the net about it.
Most of these sites advise downloading Spyware removal tools, but I can't do that, as this virus stops me from using the interwebz (currently using my mum's computer).
So I know I can only delete it manually using the 'regedit' but the virus doesn't appear on my registry, or on the processes tab of my task manager.

I know this should probably belong in the Computer Thread, but I need this resolved quickly because I am currently trying to get my body of work onto itunes.

So, what the hell do i do?
What is this that stands before me?

Figure in black that points at me...

I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.

I fixed something very similar to this once. It also stopped you from installing things on your computer.

What I did:
Go into your settings and create another user profile(with admin rights)
Log into that profile, install anti-viruses, eliminate virus.

This is quite a good idea, will attempt this.

It stops you running .exe files in general.

Well, my problem with trojans always is that my virusscanner isn't capable of killing them. But it is capable of tracking them down, so I just manually remove them from my system Otherwise, there are things like systemrestore, but you'll have to backup any important things, as you might lose some recent changes nd stuff.

It's the internet, noone are both desperate and want you the best, and sometimes you won't know it's there untill it's installed and active, and warns you about the dangerous virus called "Task Manager".

Have a system settings rollback, don't know what it's called in english, but Vista and 7 have a utillity to roll back the computer to an earlier snapshot, practically deleting or completely crippling wthever's been installed after the snapshot was saved. You might lose some settings, but not any files -- as far as I know.

Just boot it in safe mode.

Microsoft has a decent virus scanner, if you don't have one. And it's free.

actually, de-bugging, de-virusing is done in safe mode.Also, if it doesnt work, search for SmitFraudFix, its pretty good.

This, actually. I've never seen it mentioned anywhere else and I don't remember how I got it, but it was great.

Quit recommending macs and linux. Both get away with few viruses because noone can be ****ed writing them. Windows has the largest market share and as soon as that shifts then people will start writing viruses for macs instead. And since macs and linux have very little experience with them i forsee much lulz for PC users in the future.

I hate viruses so i empathise with you, the way i fix them is to pull the harddrive out and put it in an external adapter and clean it up on another computer with full virus protection.

Yeah but you also paid almost a thousand more for that fancy virus protection.

Get Microsoft Security Essentials. It actually saw a trojan a couple minutes ago and eliminated it and an exploit

It doesnt let you run .exes.........

You need to download TrendMicros HijackThis. On their site they have it renamed as Ieexplore.exe, which fools the virus into letting you run it. Theres plenty of tutorials on how to use HijackThis to remove it.
