Need help on virus


Hey guys, is there a known program that removes

“Trojan : Win32/FakeCog”

This thing isn’t going away, I need help :(.


you can try Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware


That’s the thing though. I wanted to remove that program because I thought that’s what was causing it. It spams pretty hard.


you sure it was Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware and not a fake anti virus program?
Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware may sound like fake program but its not

it sound like you downloaded a fake anti virus program


That’s Fakecog doing it’s job :lol:

The real Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware is known to be able to remove Fakecog, unless it’s a new strain:

Install it, update it, run it, restart in safe mode and disconnect your internet and run it again (sometimes reinfection occurs).


Alright looks like it calmed down for now, I tried restoring a bit earlier in the month and it hasn’t been spamming as hard. Gonna get the real Malwarebytes, thanks fellas.


False program, some jackasses have false programs that include trojans/worms that are usually keylogging software/something that steals information from your computer…

They can be activated by someone so that’s why people are telling you to disconnect your internet…



Guy with same issue and removal steps:


buy a mac.


try using this?

its called ComboFix.

a few weeks ago some script opened up from srk that gave me some malware. this was the only thing that fixed it (in safe mode).


on a serious note have u simply tried a system restore? I know its not a registry cleaner but this has worked for me on several instances.


System restore always works.


ive never bought a virus cleaner, i think they do more harm then good. system restore has fixed any problem, i just back my shit up on an external hd…
