IE7 is the absolute worst browser still supported. At least IE9 follows web standards.

How about using Combofix to remove the virus?

All in all, formatting would remove most virus infections.

It sounds like it comes with a rootkit making it really hard to fix. If you want a chance to fix it by not reformatting then I would recommend Kaspersky's Rescue Disk. The description that DABHand has given though I don't think even that will succeed though.

Its a nasty piece of work, attacks via root 0 access and stops services, infects them, and restarts them.

If you remove the main infector (being those 2 files) it causes the other services which are infected to stop working (no doubt cause the infector loads its own library which the other services need). So it causes a 1 min shutdown.

So yeah reinstall of Windows is needed in this case, thats until AVs catch up.

The shutdown can be averted with a "shutdown -a" command though. It ignores crashes at the cost of whatever functionality will be lost.

That would be great if .bat files or the command prompt would work though :P

They don't after its aftermath >.<

Well you can run it from the Run command (Win + R), Windows Powershell, Task Manager, or from the search box as well.

With that being the case, i whole-heartedly agree with Pwiz.
As much as i like technology, if my job included the use of a PC or even an office i would love to get a virus that could render my working equipment unusable.

And thats what made me Laugh at PWizards comment,i never thought of CHU getting that Virus.
