Gen.Variant Graftor.739
When I did my complete system scan Bitdefender told me it couldn't delete Gen.Variant Graftor.739. What ever this is it has been quarantined. I would like to know what exactly this is & how can I get rid of it?

This is (most likely) a worm trying to compromise Remote Desktop connections. nasty.

I recommend Microsoft Security Essentials. install, update, run deep scan, delete all threats. win.

Bitdefender is crap, get rid of it and use Security Essentials combined with common sense for the ultimate defence.


Try these:

Malwarebytes

Mcafee Stinger



Run this as a last resort (backup important data to an external drive before running), it has been known to corrupt Windows installs:

ComboFix

Intrepid (HTPC)
Galaxy (Server)

He probably has purchased a key for Bitdefender as they were on sale a while back for $19.99 so I doubt he will uninstall that AV if its still valid for 6+ months.

Need to run malwarebytes and trojan remover to get rid of that bug man.

RE: Gen.Variant Graftor.739
Combofix lol. Just the mention of the name gives me chills. This is a last resort. Its akin to using a sledge hammer... dropped from a crane to drive in a nail. Yeah it'll drive in the nail but it'll probably destroy whatever it is you're trying to put the nail into lol.

mbam as others said, run it in safe mode then run mbam rootkit removal in safemode too. That'll clean that sucker up.

Even if he bought the key, MSE if its a valid copy of windows or AVG if it isn't.

And OP: if you're going to buy a copy of an AV.. it should be ESET.

does this really matter with MSE? I've never notice having used it in both scenarios... course I don't download porn. Angel

MSE downloads genuine advantage BS so if you have a cracked copy of windows it breaks it. So if you dont have an activated copy of windows with MS and you use MSE it'll install genuine advantage and take your PC hostage.

RE: Gen.Variant Graftor.739
I love ESET NOD32 Antivirus. I've been using it since v3. I agree with Smoke its the lightest use on system resources and great detection. Love that A/V and each update it keeps getting better and better.

I think its on sale right now for $49.99 at BB/FS for a 1-yr 3 user license.

RE: Gen.Variant Graftor.739
I've been using Cloud AV (IIRC Panda owned) for a while now. Haven't had a virus, so I can't really claim how well it works, can I?

I even forget you can see sigs.

heh.
