curious one

by nelson In reply to what is i.did virus?

same here, im only just a student here in an IT school, but still concern about problem the virus had given us, especially, we just finished our finals, much our work involves saving in a diskette.. I too wants to know how to get rid of the virus, which i believe is made locally, since i leaves a message "Buti nga sayo!"... i am not only talking about the diskette, but also the computer itself, because the anti virus here we are using is not capable of healing the infected files

Preventing is better than cure

by derexzaid In reply to what is i.did virus?

Hello. I want to contribute something about the i.did virus. For now theres nothing you can do about the infected file. AVG7 can rid the virus but the problem is once the file is infected, it converts the file without notice into an executable file, even healing it would be impossible to turn the file back to its original format. The result??? the file is healed but it is also deleted. So preventing is better than cure. I hope this reply helps you.

i.did is just a cheap virus

i.did virus is just a cheap virus.

I too experienced that i.did virus in my XP. By the way the “buti nga sayo” word there means “you deserve it” in English. What I did to stop that virus in my computer was to first deleting its link from the recent document in the drive c, which is hidden. Since it is hidden you need to deactivate the hiding of files from the control panel. (Go to the control panel, folder options then click view and check the show hidden files option)

After I had deleted it, I went to the scheduled task and ended the process of sysmon32.exe which runs ( the real cause and not the i.did) the virus. Finish.

I suggest that you dispose the diskette that is infected by this virus and you can check it out from a clean diskette.

search for the sysmon32.exe in your computer and delete it. Delete it too in the recycle bin.

How I got rid of the virus...

by milmarqtan In reply to In addition..

Hope this works for you.

I first started the computer in SAFE mode (you could do this by pressing F8 continously before the computer boots to WINDOWS).

In safe mode I clicked START>RUN and typed MSCONFIG. go to STARTUP and uncheck ALL suspicious background programs (such as sysmon, but I think I unchecked ctfmon).

Then restart the computer to normal mode.

Delete the sysmon32 file after you uncheck it.
Remember, if you dont enter safe mode, MSCONFIG won't run (dont know if its also caused by the virus)
