    Nice one, sorted my brothers laptop out, he was crapping himself… It's worth noting; if you're using a mobile network like 3 (dongle plug-in) you might not be able to connect to the internet from safe mode (my brothers wouldn't) so, save combofix to an external usb stick or similar from another pc, then install straight onto the infected device, and run from there, or direct from the external device.

    Hi there,

    I think the virus has evolved now. When I start my windows 7 in safe mode or safe mode with networking,the ruddy screen still displays on the screen as shown at the start of your video. Could any one help please?

  • Reply Leon Phythian December 23, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    I'm having the same issue on a friends pc if I find a work around I'll let you know…ps could you do the same?

  • Reply zahid bashir December 23, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    I managed to get rid of this problem was following these steps

    1. start windows in safe mode with command prompt
    2. Once command prompt appears enter rstrui.exe
    3. Select a restore time point which is before infection
    4. Restore

    Now I am looking for some malware remover software to get rid of any remaining malware

    Fingers crossed it works for you as well.

  • Reply Leon Phythian December 26, 2012 at 4:12 am

    hi I tried that but it ddidn't shift It, I ended up using Kapersky and booted from that then removed service pack 2 and 3 and then I was able to get back in to windows to use Malware bytes and CCleaner that got it eventually , thanks for the reply :@)

    Hi,

    If you can't use F8 at Start-up do this…

    At the desktop click start and type msconfig (or click run first if XP). Then click the Boot tab and tick "Safe boot" and select "Network". Click Apply and reboot.

    You'll need to go back and untick Safe boot when you have finished with Combofix.

  • Reply Kyle Ece January 12, 2013 at 11:54 pm

    I have tried pressing F8 and booting under safemode w/ networking but during startup, PCEU virus still appears. Is there any other way to bypass this so I can go on with the procedure? Thanks..

    I've had the same PCeU virus happen to me and all I did to remove the bug was go Windows safe mode and used System Restore to fix the problem but I would like to know how to detect person responsible for the PCeU virus, so that I can report this fraud to actionfraud.police.uk ???

  • Reply Raymond Johnson March 31, 2013 at 2:55 am

    I received this virus today on my laptop with Windows 7. I pressed F8 during the boot up then selected "Repair Your Computer" then did a System Restore wind back to three days ago and it fixed it. 🙂 I don't know why my Avast Antivirus never detected it in the first place.

  • Reply Magister Ludi April 12, 2013 at 11:41 am

    The problem with latest versions of this virus is that they will not allow you into safe mode and set up a boot loop of sorts so you have to press f8 and go into safe mode with command prompt. You can go into the registry etc but the simplest thing is just to write 'explorer' and enter that. This takes you into safe mode and you can do system restore from there.

  • Reply Magister Ludi April 12, 2013 at 11:44 am

    It does as long as you keep updating it regularly. Either way, just go into safe mode with command prompt, type explorer, hit enter, go into system restore and get rid of it from there. There's no need to reformat your machine.

  • Reply REBOOTTHATCOM April 12, 2013 at 11:48 am

    Hi, You should still follow my video to run the virus scans even if you do system restore. It is entirely possible for this virus to infect system restore files.. Also the virus files will still be on the laptop somewhere, so run virus scans after system restore.
