Thread: W32.hllp.kindal@mm

  1. #1
    How are you? Thanks for taking the time.

    I just found out I had the W32.HLLP.Kindal@mm virus last week. Followed all the steps... Norton did not detect any file as being infected and I couldn't do step 4.g because I didn't see it (SFCDisable) in regediter. I thought that got I but it just reared it's ugly head.

    Should I just delete all the .exe and .scr files in my shared folder or and then try to get rid of it or do you think I would be better off getting rid of the entire folder (I really don't want to do this).

    Is there any type of software that does a better job on this virus besides Norton?
    Please help since I won't be able to use Kazaa for now because it might spread the virus to others.

    If I did manage to get rid of it what's the best way of keeping it off my system?

    Thanx Newb :helpsmile:

    I'm sure AVG can take care of that... even the free edition. It's a year old, and if you can't get rid of it with a virus sweep, then the anti-virus sucks!

    If you like it, then try AVG 7.0, you won't be sorry.

    thanks for the info especially @muchspl2 for the link.

    I only use web based email so the only way I think i could spread it is through Kazaa... so what should I do about the files in my shared folder?

    do u think that files besides the .exe and .scr files might be infected.

    If you&#39;ve got rid of it mate just scan again or that folder and if its ok just leave them.

    If you know when you downloaded the virus you can use system restore to get rid any changes its made to your sytem plus the virus itself.

    I STRONGLY recommend not using system restore. Any waste of code virus can copy itself to the system restore information folder (of which you can&#39;t get into ) and be in who knows what file, especially when the virus is found and removed by ANY anti-virus. Thsi is why you should disable system restore, restart, clean your system, reboot, scan to be sure (like a detailed complete scan in AVG 7.0) and re-enable system restore. Any virus can be restored if system restore is even simply still running, much less using it to try to get rid of it.

    System restore isn&#39;t even needed by most users, unless you&#39;re testing software, especially beta software. Shutting off system restore and shutting off the service will actually make your system run much faster, of course depending on hadware.

    Sorry for such a late reply but I just spent the weekend @ my cabin (getting drunk and running around in the woods is good therapy).
