Hello out there i have a windows vista machine that was riddled with malware i removed most of the infections but when i reboot the machine a Slow PC-Fighter Pops Keeps Coming up. I ran Security Center,Malware Bytes Scanner and Spyhunter any ideas?
Top of Thread
According to an article I just read, you can remove slow pc fighter through add/remove programs. I usually use a few tools for getting rid of malware: Rkill to end the malicious processes, the portable Super Antispyware, and Malwarebytes. The key is to use them in safe mode so that in theory the malware won't be running. The great thing about the portable version of Super AntiSpyware, is that it gets a random file name and isn't easily recognized by the infection. I hope this helps,
Best of luck,
