Goingonearth Virus

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

One of my laptops recently was infected with the goingonearth virus which is a pain in the backside to remove. Unfortunately neither my anti-virus nor Super AntiSpyware could detect it for removal and I ended up removing it manually - although I still suspect it's still on there somewhere and it needs a format and re-install to be sure.

Just wanted to post this in the hopes it's on the cards so no one else has to go through this pain.

Cheers,

Tones

hi ATones,

I had the same problem and i used a tool which worked like magic.

heres what u need :

1. download combofix a small but effective utility for spyware removal

2. u can download it from my account : http://www.mediafire.com/?t4g1edbd8302r0l

3. run the exe file

4. after it has inspected your system it will delete the virus and generate a log

5. download google chrome since it is not affected by this virus and uninstall firefox/IE9 and delete their installation directory to be on safe side.

hope this will help you.

b bye

Alternatively we can run a diagnostic for you through the support system; if you are infected again :) Also, thanks for the report!
