    "Awesome! Worked when nothing else did."

    August 22, 2012  |   By 1hellion

    Pros

    I had a virus that Trend Micro removed, but it left three malware products that kept attacking and eventually gave me THE BLUE SCREEN. one of the three was colexity777 (over 3000 attempts to access my computer in less than a week). Nasty thing with a pretty bad reputation online it seems. I kept reading how difficult it was to get rid of. I ran Trend Micro numerous times - nothing found. I tried hijackthis, rootkit buster etc with no help. I tried putting my computer back to an earlier state before the virus - no help. I ran across a blog that said to run this and VOILA! It found 4 trojans that nothing else found (well trend did after TDSS quarantined them) Running perfectly now with no more attacks at all. Tip: Make sure you load this to your desktop directly, not in a folder on your desktop.

    Cons

    The only con was that when it rebooted after cleaning it came up with a blank screen. I VERY nervously had to hard stop and restart (in safe mode just in case) finished running the program and nothing more found. Restarted in normal mode and have not had any problems.

    I got the blank screen too - and almost shut it down when I was distracted by one of my kids. By the time I got back, it had booted. Not sure how long it took, but I was gone for about 15 minutes.
