Help with eliminating 360 virus!

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
A friend of mine was told that he has the 360 virus. And I have seen
several methods on removing it from Google. However, when he boots up,
he cannot get into Windows, Safe Mode or anything. I screen pops up
asking if you are the home user or administrator and no matter what
you do, the screen immediately refreshes and you see the same thing.

I tried F2, F8, and no changes I tried worked. I cannot get into safe
mode, nothing. Going to last known good configuration will not work.
Actually since it will not go beyond the screen I mentioned above, I
cannot start any program. What should I do and how?

Are there any reliable removal tools that can do it and how can I get
it to work if I cannot get into windows?

Please help,
Marcus

Hello Marcus:

Have the friend's hard disk drive removed and installed into a
non-infected system where the infestations can be identified & removed
with good antimalware.  This may only be partially successful and just a
small opportunity to recapture personal & uninfected files for the last
time.

Your friend should also be prepared to flatten and rebuild from their
backups.

Please update this thread with you friend's progress.

Good links, but...

I find it interesting that they both start with this line:

"1) Put the Windows Vista [or XP] installation disc in the disc drive, and
then start the computer."

How many people actually have a "Windows Vista [or XP] INSTALLATION disk?
Not many.
