|Before any further reading, i want to apologise for posting this question here, and im aware im hurting my reputation by doing this, but im really desperate. If is very unappropriated, i will delete it myself. But if you can help me with a solution to my problem... oh boy. I wrote to malwarebytes Forum the same question,and now im waiting. But on other AV websites, its just problematic to even log in to their forums, from my side at least: avast,avg,norton. You guys here i really respect and i hope you can help me more than 'dedicated' chaps out there.
I wonder if is a MANUAL way possible of cleaning those 'infections', that i strongly suspect is just a parameter written in the executable file. Or if only automatic way exists... Either way, i need a way to preserve my bunch of stuff that i'm so scared to loose at this time.
------------------ here is my problem:
I keep the instalation software that i tested and i liked. I am doing it for years. I have a special folder with all my instalations kits, and i gathered in time somewhere like 200 perhaps. So when i have to reinstal my windows, i reinstall my usual software from that folder. Thats it's purpose, a backup.
Some time ago, i received a troian (virus), and i manage to clean it yesterday from my C partition and from windows too. But i scanned my D drive also, where this folder i have with all the instalation kits. And nearly all the executables are found infected with this latest trojan and from other old ones i had in the past. I am a bit desperate about this situation because i can not get back the specific software versions i gathered anymore.
Is there a posibility to clean all these installers? But not cleaning by deletion or quarantine, but cleaning the actual virus that is inside them/or/attach to them ? And leave intact my instalation kit, ready to use another time, uncorupted or damaged?
I used: MalwareBytes free version and also AVG antivirus free version. Both softwares didnt clean eficiently from windows scan. Only from boot scan! But im refering for the elimination of all windows infections. Drive D is well scanned from windows and eficient enough.
These are the viruses that are infecting my installers:
win32: Gardih (this was the latest one)
win32: Crypt-SJB [Trj] (this was the latest one)
win32: Evo-gen [Susp]
win32: Rootkit-gen [Rtk]
win32: MalwareX-gen [Trj]
BV: ExitWindows-K [Trj]
BV: Agent-BGV [Expl]
Other: Malware-gen [Trj]
Thank you !
