Need help removing Mrofinu

Unread postby digitalh2o » July 31st, 2008, 5:36 pm

Alright well, I got this weird program called mrofinu. I never noticed it before and tried to delete it but always came back. Now my brother deleted the Whole C: so it would go away but, it still is in here. So hopefully you guys can help me with this because I can't seem to do the regular things I was able to do before I got this. Here is the log

Welcome digitalh2o

I will be helping you under the guidance of one of our expert coaches.
Please give me a little time to get back to you with instructions.

In the meantime please note the following:
  • Any recommendations made are for your computer problems only and should NOT be used on any other computer.
  • Please DO NOT run any scans/tools or other fixes unless I ask you to. This is very important for several reasons. Here are just two of them:
    1. The tools that we use are very powerful and can cause >>irreparable damage<< to your computer if not used correctly.
    2. Commercial scanners, for the most part can not completely remove some of the more "resistant" infections. This makes it much more difficult to get rid of completely.
  • If you get stuck or are unsure of something please ask for a further explanation, do not guess.
  • Continue to respond to this thread until I give you the All Clean!
Thanks
John
