Need help on virus


#1

Hey guys, is there a known program that removes

“Trojan : Win32/FakeCog”

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


#2

you can try Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware


#3

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


#4

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


#5

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: http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=5756

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


#6

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…

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.


#12

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…
