    Removal tools are no solution to an infection, particularly not with
    malware that may download more malware or may give an attacker remote
    access. One can never be sure what else was modified on the system and
    thus can never be certain that the malware was removed entirely.

    59cobalt might sound like a broken record on this issue, but he's
    absolutely correct. The only way to be sure the corruption has been
    completely removed is to restore from an image prior to the infection or
    reformat & reinstall.

    59cobalt: I appreciate your faithfulness to repost this response
    whenever the issue pops up again. Hopefully, it will start to sink into
    people's minds.

    @ G : Not everybody is able to reinstall and reformate thier pcs.and
    if someone can do that,is`nt it bothring to to format and reinstall
    windows twice or even thrice a day?huh i had that experience. many
    viruses do corrupt restore point and also make thier backup in drives
    other than windows installation drive and they infect the fresh
    windows when you reinstall.and other drives contain too much data. no
    one loves to formate thier data collected in past months or even i
    past years.

    If one would have to do so every day, one is doing something very
    wrong.

    >huh i had that experience.


    well..

    A good reason for not running them in the first place.

    That's very rare.

    >and other drives contain too much data.

    And that's not necessary unless one is behaving very stupidly.

    That's why most of us who know what they're doing try to prevent our
    systems from being infected in the first place. Backups and/or system
    images take care of the rest.

    That doesn't change anything about the fact that reinstalling is the
    *only* safe way back to a clean system, unless you can determine
    *exactly* when and how an infection occurred and what was altered on the
    system afterwards.

    This is a classic example of someone who should not be using a computer.

    Why are you installing these viruses? Viruses do not magically appear
    on your computer. YOU - the person using the computer are the one
    installing them. You can avoid the virus problem by not installing them.
    Why don't you try that?

    If it hurts when you put your hand in a fire - maybe it would be a
    good idea not to put your hand in the fire.

    Why don't you try that?.

    Most spywares and trojans or viruses get installed on your pc
    automatically, ivisibly, when people visit a bad site that contains
    virus, i.e. hacking site, wares sites, porn sites etc. you advised to
    try to not install viruses so this means not to go to those websites.
    but a huge community loves these site, they cant stop surfing these
    sites

    No. It means to work as a non-privileged user, and to allow active
    content in web pages only when there's a good reason for doing so.

    Go away and don't come back until you have at least some basic
    understanding of how computer security can actually be achieved.

    Others think, that a discussion can lead to a better understanding.

    Discussions usually are only worthwhile when the parties involved are
    willing to expand their knowledge/understanding. dfinc has demonstrated
    several times that this doesn't apply to him.

    Plus, his postings are still WAY off-topic in this group.

    No - fools enable the "Take Over My Computer" button because clicking
    OK is to hard, or are clicking OK for everything. They are to busy
    clicking OK, trying to get quickly to the pictures of the naked cow
    or pig, that they don't want to read "Clicking OK here will install
    the latest virus, trojan AND spyware [OK]" message.

    Don't install everything, and don't click OK on every icon you see.
    It's amazing how few virus/trojans you will then find on your computer.

    >when people visit a bad site that contains virus, i.e. hacking site,


    Why do you need to visit hacking sites? I find it very funny when
    clueless think they need hacking tools, but don't know what is in the
    tool, and what it is _actually_ doing (not what it was advertised to
    do). Installing such tools makes them the victims, and the real
    hackers are laughing at the fools who imagine this makes them hackers.

    >wares sites,


    Why do you need to visit warez sites? I also find it very funny to
    hear about people installing anti-mal-ware warez (that actually is
    installing other mal-ware) in an attempt to remove the mal-ware they
    got at a warez site.

    >porn sites


    Eventually you will discover that real live members of the appropriate
    sex that you can touch (and can touch you) are a lot more interesting
    and fun than pictures of people on a computer screen. But there are
    a few people who are so ugly, or so stupid, the picture on the computer
    is all they're ever going to see.

    >you advised to try to not install viruses so this means not to go to
    >those websites. but a huge community loves these site, they cant stop
    >surfing these sites


    Just because a lot of people are stupid idiots - does that mean you
    have to be one as well?

    Removal tools (or instructions for manual removal) are no solution to an
    infection, particularly not with malware that may download more malware
    or may give an attacker remote access. One can never be sure what else
    was modified on the system and thus can never be certain that the
    malware was removed entirely.

    Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. The problem (which obviosly
    still eludes your grasp) is that you can't distinguish the cases where
    it does from those where it doesn't. Meaning that your only safe way
    back to a clean system is to flatten and rebuild.
