    Hi I recently accidentally download unwanted files. (I'm sure thats how all these start) but I was able to delete most of the files through troubleshooting and looking up ways to fight Dataup and other viruses but I still have a few root viruses that keep coming back (including Dataup) and I believe I have a rootkit virus as well, and most methods fail epicly and I need an expert to take care of these. For warning Malwarebytes will not work for some reason, I believe the virus has detected and found a way to shut it down instantly before it even starts. Please Help!!!!!!!!

    • Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit and save the file to your Desktop.
    • Right-Click MBAR.exe and select [​IMG] Run as administrator to run the installer.
    • Select your Desktop as the location to extract the contents and click OK. The programme should open upon completion.
    • Click Next, followed by Update. Upon update completion, click Next.
    • Ensure Drivers, Sectors & System are checked and click Scan.
    • Note: Do not use your computer during the scan.
    • Upon completion:
      • If no infection is found, close the MBAR window.
      • If an infection is found, ensure Create Restore Point is checked and click Cleanup. Reboot when prompted.

    • Two logs (mbar-log.txt and system-log.txt) will be created. Copy the contents of both logs and paste in your next reply. Both logs can be found in the MBAR folder.
