Unknown Virus

The whole day today I’m fixing my laptop because of this single virus that i couldn’t know it’s name.

Back then i was using bit defender antivirus as my only antivirus but the antivirus was unable to do anything against this virus.

The virus that i’m talking about is something that will caused this few things happen to your laptop or pc;

  1. Task manager disable by administrator
  2. Antivirus was shut down (almost the same like the brontoks c but last time this brontoks can be deleted manually)
  3. New antivirus installation is disable
  4. You are unable to see all the hidden files as it was disable by administrator
  5. Regedit was disable
  6. Unable to make wireless connection
  7. Firewall disable

Because of this thing, i have to format my laptop and all in drive c become empty. But for sure i also do back up but i know that the files inside is also infected as it happen that i open my external harddisk after the 1st time reformat. Anyway the second time (which is now) i did use internet to install all the software needed.

There is a big probability that this is caused by the malware  so i might get a malware protection for my self too. By this time if you are with me i wish to show you that i installed 3 antivirus running in my laptop.

The antivirus that had been my choice is AVG free, Bit Defender Free and Avast Home edition. The memory usage by this 3 antivirus is the same with the memory usage when using kaspersky antivirus. So for me i prefer to use more compare to one. There might be software crash, but in my previous exerience this had never occur.

But the way you installed the antivirus must be following the sequence. AVG must be the first one, followed by avast and then bit defender. Maybe you can change the sequence of avast and bit defender but for sure AVG must be the first one to go.

Hoping that this will work, so right now I will fix my external hard disk. Wish me luck.

I start blogging in 2008 but I have never take blogging seriously. And that is the biggest mistakes that I make in my life. In 2010 I almost stop blogging completely. I concentrate on my low paying day job and was too tired to even look at my blog. But then I still keep my blog and websites up. After 7 years, I realize that I cannot only depends on my day job. I could not afford being in the rat race 9 to 5 work and also on unpaid on-call work. Then I realize something, if I never stop blogging in 2010, I will have lots of audience by now. It takes few years for me to realize this mistakes. And now here I am again, creating a good content for you. I hope you can subscribe to my mailing list and also like my Facebook page.
