    Default Virus I can't delete

    So as the title tells you, I have this extremely annoying virus that no matter what I do I can NOT get rid of. I have tried five different antivirus programs including: Avast! , Malwarebytes , MSSE , Clamwin and SUPERAntiSpyware. I searched Google for about 3 hours total and came across a thread about a program called Killbox. It couldn't get rid of it either. I am currently running Malwarebytes, and every 5 minutes I get a quarantine message about the file. It is called XxX.xXx. When I go to the location of the file and click on it, it automatically clicks off by itself so I can't do anything to it. So far it doesn't seem like it's done any damage, but I would really like to get rid of it. Please, any help is appreciated.

    where is the file sitting; in the windows folder?

    Maybe roll the system back with restore or better yet an Image if you have done that.

    Try booting in Safe Mode and dumping the whole folder to the Recycle Bin. Then do a Registry clean.

    And stay away from the pr0n sites

    Delete the whole temp folder? And to be honest, I don't go on porn sites with my i7 computer. If I did I'd have to beat myself. I do download ALOT of programs and hacks and stuff for my games. Also a crapload of torrents.

    heh. Ya, reboot to Safe Mode. Try deleting the whole Temp folder. If successful, then empty it out of your recycle bin. Then create a new, empty Temp folder.

    Only problem is there might still be traces left in your Registry. So run each of those anti-virus programs AFTER you delete the Temp folder (assuming you can) while still in Safe Mode.

    You can try disconnecting your PC from the internet by unplugging the ethernet cable, some spyware or virus keeps themselves active by being connected to a network that might be the reason why u can delete it.

    Could be you cannot delete the file due to it being in use, you might try a freeware program "unlocker" or put your windows install disc in, reboot and when you get to the install use the Recovery console and then browse to the file and delete it.

    Could be a reinstall command hidden in your system restore aswell (seen this before. it reinstalls after cleanup and reboot). Shut off system restore before entering safe mode, then empty folder and run spybot search and destroy and other spyware utilities you have or would like to use. Reboot to desktop and create a new restore point, enable system restore again or leave it off for a short period to see if the nasty comes back. Torrents can be nasty for picking up bugs.

    if it clicks off itself that means a process is running. if you can't run task manager try process explorer ( google ). some viruses disable that also, then there's pstools option ( also google ). those are command line tools, so unless your comfortable working in cmd.exe, those aren't for you and i don't know any other solution..

    but in the case you want to try them...

    i use 'pslist -t' to check for unwanted processes. these days viruses run several processes at the same time so if you kill one, the other one runs that killed one again. the '-t' option gives you a view of what process ran which one, a tree structure, so you can trace to the root one. and if you found the bad process, 'pskill -t <process id or filename>' will kill the whole branch and you're free to delete the exe then.

    if you're able to run process explorer though, it's much easier. just select the root process and 'end process tree' or something like that...

    i've removed many viruses this way. well, it's trojans/malware to be more exact but still...

    Try using Ccleaner to clean out your temp files, registry, and startup items. It's been a lifesaver for me many times! Also, like Kipper mentioned, install unlocker and use it to forcefully delete the file.

    Of all the options suggested this would be the sure fire answer and take far less time then testing all the suggestions!
