MSN Virus


OSNN Veteran Original
My friend got that virus, where u accept a file from a friend.

Well, I ran AVG, Defender, Spybot and got nothing fixed.

Is there a fix for this, besides reformatting?


OSNN Veteran Original
No I didn't, they want me to fix it.

AVG is installed, so installing nod is not a good idea, might have to uninstall and such..

There is no known fix for it?


OSNN Veteran Original
I thought there was only one new virus you can get from msn these days,

i guess not...

next time i have her computer, which probably will be tommorow, i give a hijack log.
remove AVg and install nod32/kaspersky.

AVG is not and has never been effective against viruses/trojans, despite what people will try and claim to delude themselves into thinking they are safe by using it.


OSNN Veteran Original
I had nod32 installed awhile back, but I dunno I just went back to AVG.

I was told nod was better, yet still went back. Maybe I will change as well as my friend. (oh yea, not free)

I will also do a hijack log.


OSNN Veteran Original
Is Kaspersky 7 free?

And just out of curiosity, before I get her computer. I ran a hijack on mine.

What is a normal computer with no problems or anything look like. Is mine alright?

I've dumped AVG long ago and went with avast! for my 'newbie' friend's machines.
If you stick with AVG, MAKE SURE YOU DO YOUR SCAN IN SAFE MODE, this applies for Spybot S&D as well. I can't count how many time's I've gotten results in safemode vs normal mode.

How to disable dumprep.exe: if you want to.

  1. Right click on “My Computer,” choose “Properties” from that menu.
  2. Click on “Advanced tab,”
  3. Click the “Error Reporting” button.
  4. Check the “Disable error reporting” box. You may choose to uncheck the the box below it, “But notify me when an error occurs,” if desired.
Voila, the annoying dumprep.exe tool is now disabled!

What do you mean check them, I use Snagit, and I was told you can't stop QTTask..

Are all these removable things? or what...
Yes. You can and should remove them all :)

Remove the snag it tool bar too. The less junk you have loaded in IE the less chance you have of it crashing.


OSNN Veteran Original
I don't use IE, but I will remove the stuff, I don't need the snagit toolbar for the program to run? I dont use the toolbar, didnt know it had one.

I can find these in the registry right?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
