I’ve have some weird virus issues going on at work, and I do believe this are the most weird virus issues I’ve deal w/.
It’s hard to say if this is really a virus. I’ve scanned w/ malwarebytes & the Norton Corporate version we use and no infections were found. I’ve cleaned out all the temporary files through Windows & CCleaner.
I’ve included some screen shots of the infection screens.
As of now the infection(s) only seem to work w/ Internet explorer & not fire fox; she’s been using fire fox for a while and haven’t heard back from her about virus messages.
Another very strange part of this is as you see in 1 of the screen shots I get the access denied message when trying to use msconfig under her account in Windows. I login to Windows as administrator and her account is in the Administrator group. I’ve also done antivirus scans using the administration account but still none found. If I login as administrator and remove her account and the recreate her account the denied messages go away and I can run msconfig, but I don’t see anything suspicious in startup or services.
I’ve been surfing the internet over this infection and found something about this being fake Microsoft security essentials warnings; even if you don’t have Microsoft security essentials. I’ve installed Microsoft Security Essentials and no infections were found.
I’ve included the web page that talks about 1 of the infections and all the settings you need to remove or change in the registry. I thought I’d ask if anyone has ever dealt w/ this same problem(s) before and knows something to remove the infections with. I’d rather not start editing the registry unless I have to, or re image the PC because this lady has a lot of specialized software on it.
I’ve been trying what’s on this website but no luck yet.
Anyone have any ideas, saw this before, or had any experience w/ this?
