Could you please help me? There is the Trojan.FileHarakiri virus on my computer. My antivirus is unable to do anything. This virus is corrupting my files and I can't open Word and Excel files, as well as my photos and e-mail. How do I delete it from my computer? Can I still save the files?!!!
I was recommended Spybot here and it has worked for everything so far.
hi. It's an old virus, and it usually invades your computer to make you pay money. As you pay, your credit card information is being stolen, and it is later used to steal the money from it. However, even after you pay, the virus does not get deleted from the computer. Here I have written a short instruction on how to delete it (although I still think it may not work for all the versions of the virus):
1. HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon - replace Shell via explorer.exe
2. kill alert.exe process
3. remove $APPDATA\Primary
it's far more complicated to restore the files. Not all of them can be restored. I tried programs http://www.recoverytoolbox.com and http://www.quetek.com/prod02.htm?sou...FYHozAodvEz-lA, but the one that works the best is http://www.recovernow.me/?refid=17. It helped me with e-mail files and photos that other programs failed to restore
NO NO NO!!! That is not a trojan, that is a rogue. I reccomend downloading Malwarebytes anti-malware- http://www.malwarebytes.org/
Update, run a full scan and post back the results.
This is adware and not real trojan. You can remove the references for this adware by running software called "Spybot search & destroy" or "Malwarebytes antimalware".
