Is this virus (Exploit Byte Verify) REALLY serious and how would I go about removing it?

Is this virus (Exploit Byte Verify) REALLY serious and how would I go about removing it? Topic: Update one letter of application
May 22, 2019 / By Erica
Question: On Ad-Aware, there was a virus detection and a window popped up saying there were a bunch of trojans and all of them were detected as Exploit-ByteVerify. And how did I get this? I mean, are there certain sites or something with it on it? The only time I ever download anything is screensavers from official movie sites (like sawiv.com or whatever--I don't think the studio execs were looking to give me a virus) or Sims 2 downloads.

Download the programs linked below. Install them. Update them. Scan your pc with them, and do so weekly. If you have System Restore turned on, the Restore files may be infected, and trying to reinfect your pc. I turn off that feature, reboot to delete the files, then turn it on after a full system scan with AVG. Turning off System Restore. (right-click My Computer, Properties, System Restore tab, check the box to turn off System Restore on all drives.) Restart your PC, and hold down the F8 key. When you see the Boot Menu appear (black screen white letters), choose SAFE MODE. Run a FULL SYSTEM SCAN with AVG. You can heal or quarentine anything found. You can also run Spybot and AdAware while in Safe Mode. I suggest you do a full system scan. Get rid of anything they find. To exit Safe Mode, just restart your PC normally. AVG Antivirus - Free Antivirus Software (CNET: "AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition is the most popular free solution available at no cost to home users and provides the high level of detection capability that millions of users around the world trust to protect their computers.") Ad-Aware - Free Antispyware Software (CNET: "One of the first applications built to find and remove adware and spyware, Ad-Aware 2007's excellent reputation is well-justified.") Spybot Search&Destroy - Free Antispyware/Antitrojan Software Some REALLY great features of Spybot Search&Destroy: Its ability to help your PC block known spyware/hijacker sites with Immunize feature, a Secure Shredder for truly removing files from your PC, and Startup, which allows you to view the files starting with Windows. SuperAntiSpyware SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition is 100% Free and will detect and remove thousands of Spyware, Adware, Malware, Trojans, KeyLoggers, Dialers, Hi-Jackers, and Worms. SUPERAntiSpyware features many unique and powerful technologies and removes spyware threats that other applications fail to remove. Hope this helps.

Try running Chkdsk as Simply Red suggests: Click Start | Run or press WinKey + R, type cmd, press Enter Type chkdsk /R C: and press Enter. If the download folder is not on C:, change the drive letter above to the correct drive If it's the system drive, you'll see this: The type of the file system is NTFS. Cannot lock current drive. Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N) Hit Y and Enter, then reboot. This could take a long time depending on size of drive and how many errors it finds. If it's not the system drive, you might see this: Cannot lock current drive. Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Chkdsk may run if this volume is dismounted first. ALL OPENED HANDLES TO THIS VOLUME WOULD THEN BE INVALID. Would you like to force a dismount on this volume? (Y/N) If you type Y it may be able to dismount the volume and run chkdsk. Any open files on this disk will not be saved. If it can't dismount, you'll be given the option to schedule it to run at boot. In this case, be best to select no and schedule it to run at the next boot. When Chkdsk runs at boot, Chkdsk will create a log in the Event Viewer in the Application log (Start | Run, type eventvwr.msc, press Enter) with a source of WinLogon (Wininit Vista/Win 7) that will show a summary of the results. You can click the Source column header to sort by Source, or Filter the view Win2K/XP: Click View | Filter... and select WinLogon as the Event Source. Click View | All Records to remove the filter Vista/Win 7: Click Action | Filter Current log... and check Wininit in the Event Sources: drop down. Click Action | Clear Filter to remove the filter. If it finds any bad sectors, you may want to run it again every few days for a while. If it continually finds bad sectors, it could be a sign of a failing hard drive.

You probably have a bootable CD, boot with it and delete the file (from a command prompt or terminal window). Otherwise, open a command immediate and run attrib (with that file's identify) in the directory that file is located in. See if it's learn-best or procedure. (whether it is, attrib can alternate it - type attrib /? For aid).

Try clearing your Java cache to remove that malware. "Go to Start > Control Panel > Double-Click on Java Icon > Under Temp Internet Files > Settings > go ahead and delete them. That will clear the java cache." http://forums.techguy.org/security/508939-need-help-removing-trojan-horse.html#post4095678 Trojan should now be gone. Your Java is probably out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. To prevent further infections with this trojan, update your Java at the Sun Java website: http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp Then go to your Add / Remove programs and remove any old versions of Java. ---------------------------- And here is a little online security tool called The Secunia Software Inspector, that scans a computer for un-secure, un-updated and un-patched apps that may be installed on your computer. Use once a month in addition to your other protections. The Secunia Software Inspector checks for possibly vulnerable programs like Adobe, Winamp, Java etc. and notifies if critical security updates are needed. Takes about 30 seconds and the results might suprise you! Will work using IE, Opera or Firefox. Pretty cool and free at: http://secunia.com/software_inspector Good luck.

Most of the time if you type the virus name into Google or Yahoo search box you will get removal instructions and info. on the virus. Or, you can go to www.norton.com, look for virus info. and clk on that for help. It could have come from anywhere including email. Good Luck

Hi, Unpacked BCDs are called ASCII in x86 terminology (particularly because they are used with the ASCII characters for digits so often - but this has nothing to do with the actual character set). This is how it's done: ; Put 2 BCDs in AL and BL here! xor ah, ah add al, bl aaa Now AX will contain a 2-digit BCD (the carry is added to AH - which is why we cleared it in the first place; CF and AF are also set).
