    Hello,

    We have a Lenovo notebook running Windows Vista. It has been infected with the security tool virus. I followed the instructions at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-security-tool and it appeared to have cleaned the system, but this morning the virus was back. We'd appreciate any assistance you can offer!

    Hi,

    Sorry for delayed response. Forums have been really busy. If you still need help with this do following, please.


    Download DDS and save it to your desktop from here or here or here.
    Disable any script blocker, and then double click dds file to run the tool.
    • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
      1. DDS.txt
      2. Attach.txt
    • Save both reports to your desktop. Post them back to your topic.
