Just another weblog

We hadn’t succeeded after all in cleaning the PC of this crap. After my previous post, Erika and I spent a long evening attacking this thing without any victory at all. I was all for copying her important data to an external drive, hitting it with AV/Spyware, copying it the new laptop, and wiping the old one.

But while I was working in Dublin, Erika came across the key – it had used Deamon tools and installed a virtual CD of itself! Now that’s mean! She discovered this via karspesky online when it reported a virtual CD-Drive that she didn’t know about, and couldn’t see.

So she uninstalled Deamon tools, and went back over the process previously outlined, and that, apparently, was that. No more virus.

Way to go Erika.
