If we can't trust THOSE companies to scan everything that they post for public usage, then every computer user in the world is in big trouble I guess. the virus isn't going away and I am unable to do anything on my own computer... You say to fix files which are similar to the four listed. http://tagnabit.net/infected-with/infected-with-antivirus-soft.php
I've tried all the others. It was in c:\WINDOWS\Prefetch and in App Data under ggryoc\tivmsftav.exe in the Doc & Settings.I'm not a techie, but so far this is working for me. I had the "Antivirus Soft" virus and seemed to (I've been running now for ten minutes and it seems to be fine again) have taken care of the program this way:Simply I did as Admin suggested above and deleted the file in said folders. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/336851/infected-with-antivirus-soft-trojan/
Mine in particular was especially tricky. thanks for this article, it's 100% true! I was able to stop the process by doing a ctrl+alt+delete right after logging into windows which allowed me to activate task manager before the malware loaded and looked for a
Thanks!A system restore solved my problem; booting in safe mode wasn't necessary. normal or safe mode, neither works. Like others said, do ctrl-alt-del to get to task manager BEFORE the malware has a chance to pop up. What makes it unsafe.

But once Unlocker gets sicced on the bad boy files, they get their comeuppance really fast! And remember, you MUST update anti-malware before scanning your computer.
This is insane, and I'd like to wring the pencil neck of whoever is responsible for this. Thank you so much, Spybot worked perfectly and got rid of my problems. Overall it is one of those issues that don't have clear and easy solution. February 5, 2010 at 4:40 PM Anonymous said...
Don't know if it lets IE run because I don't use it.The exe is called sdnusftav.exe February 18, 2010 at 12:41 AM Anonymous said... http://www.pctools.com/threats/view/name/Antivirus%20Soft/ That's because the majority of EXE programs that I download these days almost always come from trusted web-sites such as Microsoft.com, filehippo.com, and majorgeeks.com. In the processes section, look for hpisstfav.exe or something close to that (I don't remember exactly, but the 'hpiss' is accurate) and end the process. said...
Or the only way to install it is by having direct access to my computer? check my blog It's enough to say they are concise, smart and definitely useful. Only one of them works. Major pain but this blog helped solve it.
Restoring the system took care of the problem, thank goodness! So, I re-extracted it from the download zip file and tried running it again "As Administrator" a Vista feature, thinking that i could over-ride the AV block. I tried Spybot and Malwarebytes and it didn't do nothing for me. this content So, this is obviously not the program content that warn NOD, but really the encryption itself..
In IE 8, there's the added annoyance that the scroll bar doesn't work in the preview box. It's really crazy... February 2, 2010 at 1:20 PM Admin said...
You are strongly advised to follow our removal instructions below.How do I know if I am infected with Antivirus Soft?This is how the main screen of the rogue application looks:You will I get home and start copying files from the flash drive to my system's hard drive, and suddenly Symantec's Norton Internet Security 2010 flags unlocker 1.8.9.exe as having a virus and Anyway, I thought I would mention my frustration with NIS in this situation after reading your blogs about most of the major antivirus companies finding false positives for viruses in a I also used task manager right at boot up with CTRL+ SHIFT + ESC in order to open task manager quick enough to start end unknown tasks starting.
I consider Outlook potentially unwanted, but that doesn't mean it needs to have a bloody great big warning from AVG saying there's a problem. Unfortunately, it is difficult to imagine companies that produce effective anti-virus software (which means a global task) to "waste their time" for the benefit of a relatively small group of individuals. How can I download when I'm in safe mode. have a peek at these guys How else does anyone expect a security program to react to such processes?
I didn't need to download any other programs to remove the spyware/malware so I think this is a safer route. System restore did the trick. When my McAfee comes up and says that your software is a Trojan (like it just did) - it is a false statement and it is damaging your business. February 19, 2010 at 4:10 PM Anonymous said...
i think it will make Avira makers notice, i hope. I went again back to normal mode with intention to try ctrl-alt-del and to find the malicious files in the task manager and end those processes.

This blog helped clarify the AV alert could be ignored. Thank you very much for this information, I just used an updated Malwarebytes from the instructions above and it worked perfectly February 6, 2010 at 4:37 PM Anonymous said... Surely the manpower for an anti-virus company doesn't allow to check all software. I know you didn't say too, but Hijack this instructions on the their menu said to analyze before deleting.
