Antivir Solution Pro virus, can't start .exe's :(
« on: July 12, 2010, 10:29:02 PM »
Hi. My computer has the 'antivir solution pro' virus. I googled it to find out how to get rid of it, and most of the sites said either through malwarebytes or kill the process then delete the files. I can't do either. The virus doesn't let ANY .exes start. If I try to a message will come up saying 'cannot start (exe name).exe. The file is infected.

There are all these popups and such, it's very annoying, pleeease help me.

Here's my computer specs
Windows XP
1gb ram
pentium 4

Or, if anyone could just tell me how I can end the process, I could probably get the rest.

    Sorry I don't have anything that can help but I am having the same problem.  I'm not sure if you are experiencing this as well but I cannot enter safe mode or system restore.  Task manager is also being blocked.  If you find any solutions let me know, Ill do the same.

    Running W7, 2Gb Ram.

      Update:

      I just realized that the Antivir software is one of the last things to load up after a restart.  If you open up task manager as soon as windows starts it stays open.  I'm not sure which processes need to be stopped though.

        Hello and welcome to Computer Hope Forum. My name is Dave. I will be helping you out with your particular problem on your computer. I am working under the guidance of one of the specialist of this forum so it may take a bit longer to process your logs.

        1. I will be working on your Malware issues. This may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.
        2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
        3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
        4. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans while I am helping you.
        5. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
        6. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
        7. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

        Please download and run the below tool named Rkill (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com) which may help allow other programs to run.
        Save Rkill to your desktop.

        There are 4 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
         
        Vista and Win7 users need to right click Rkill and choose Run as Administrator
         

        You only need to get one of these to run, not all of them. You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.

        Rkill.exe
        Rkill.com
        Rkill.scr
        Rkill.pif

        Once you've gotten one of them to run then try to immediately run the following.
         
        Now download and Run exeHelper.

        Please download exeHelper from Raktor to your desktop.
        • Double-click on exeHelper.com to run the fix. A black window should pop up, press any key to close once the fix is completed. A log file named log.txt will be created in the directory where you ran exeHelper.com Attach the log.txt file to your next message.

          Note: If the window shows a message that says "Error deleting file", please re-run the program before posting a log - and post the two logs together (they will both be in the one file).
