Wipe it, it'll be quicker.

I agree with monkey, it was what I did eventually with my PC as couldn't get rid of a virus.

It seemed a bit ott, but it works

I think I got rid of this by starting in safe mode and running a full scan using MalwareByes Anti-Malware

If you are planning on selling it anyway i would just wipe the whole thing.
If you have a re-install disc use that.

Wail. none of them. I might have another go but it's hard to track what you've done and what you haven't.

Thanks for yours - I'll have a go...

Any youtube videos help?

Oh just re read and realised you might have already done that grin oops

Done that, box -closest I got to killing it, but it didn't work.

Thanks so much. I dont actually need anything on the pc, so I could wipe the lot. What hacks me off most is that I really want to sell the netbook, wh is practically unused, and I dont reckon anyone will buy it in this condition.

oh i empathise ....... had it on pc and it was a b***** to get rid.... and it infects files even if its deleted, I lost quite a few.

Sorry I can't remember exactly how got rid, had to get a special programme and cannot remeber where.

Just wanted to wish you all the best !

oh god we had that and had to call in the professionals to deal with it. sad do you have someone you could call?

And I can't get rid. The antivirus I've somehow managed to get onto the dear little Dell Inspiron has spotted the bugger but the windows wont shrink down enough to let me press delete.

Grr, and breathe. Have spent 14 hours on the 'electric interweb' on the trusty mac trying to find a fix that works.
