unable to find valid SDFix download link

One of the pcs here at work is infected with a diificult piece of malware to remove.  From what I've read, SDFix should be able to remove it but from every link I've tried (on my own pc-not the infected one) I'm not able to get to the program to download it.  (The links don't take me anywhere.)

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

SDFix has not been a valid tool for several years.

If you will give us some symptoms, we can try to help you.

Take a look at an Article I wrote that might get you started.

here's what I've done thus far:

- Installed a clean copy of Malwarebytes from the server and ran a scan in safe mode.  Nothing was detected.

- Ran cCleaner  (Cleaner & Registry scans)

- Ran HijackThis and removed cru629.dat entry & an unnamed entry

- Ran scan using AVG free 11.0; it doesn't find anything

Safe Mode scans with Malwarebytes are not recommended by the developers IF the system will boot to Normal Mode.

What are the symptoms (or name I hope) of the actual malware?

In many instances you need to run a rogue process killer before using MBAM.

btw.. when you get to the page, you will see a countdown delay before you can download the file. The wait is around 45 seconds.

@flubbster,
AndyManchesta (the creator of SDFix) hasn't worked on it since late 2009.
It is not a safe product for anyone to use on any current Windows OS - and has been known to actual 'brick' computers.

We need to be careful to warn our Members about possible dangers to their computers.

After running RogueKiller (in Win XP normal mode) and then running CCleaner (in Safe Mode), I was finally able to identify & remove the problem.

PRNAdmin,
That is great to hear.

Please take a few minutes extra and run Malwarebytes (Normal Mode) just for some insurance.

And yes...I am paranoid about these things.

I'm surprised.... I answered the specific question/request on where to download the program, yet got nothing.

@flubbster,
Did you see my comment at http:#a35301172 ?

It doesn't matter that you found the download link for a program that should no longer be used. The right advice is to help our members not make a mistake that could crash their computers.

SDFix should not be used on any computer.
