Antivirdog malware hard to delete

By dsteckel ·
Where does antivirdog.exe come from? How do you remove HKE_Current_user/software/wnxmal ? Seems to target Windows 7?

download, install, update, and run (preferably in safe mode). I have Win7 and I have yet to see that particular piece of malware.

Aside: Any registry key is removed by deleting it.

If you can't delete it, you don't have full permissions (admin). If it keeps coming back, it is because the file that generates it is still extant.

Do as PurpleSkys suggests. Safe Mode with <i>no networking support</i>. Best to just physically unplug from the network until the infection is gone.

Run MBAM again until you get no results.
