I.- Clear out your Temporary files

Click Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup

II.- Have your system scanned by the installed antivirus/security suite.

III.- Run this tool from Kaspersky: How to remove malware belonging to the family Rootkit.Win32.TDSS


IV.- Download, install, update, and run scans with both of these free anti-malware tools:

MalwareBytes AntiMalware (MBAM)


SUPERAntiSpyware (SAS)


V.- Mcafee's Stinger Virus Remºver

If the above suggestions do not work, try following Step 1 and 2 in this virus/malware removal guide: http://www.selectrealsecurity.com/malware-removal-guide

It contains instructions that will remove most malware infections. If you have any questions, just ask me. I hope this helps you.

Whatever Windows based operating system version you use there are chances that some malware can bring back your PC to its knees. My Windows PC was infected with Trojan:Win32/Reveton.F couple of months ago. My PC was freezing most often than not and most of the applications were not working properly. I use Microsoft Security Essential and when I ran a scan of my hard drive it detected a worm by the name of Trojan:Win32/Reveton.F and then I moved it to the quarantine. I stopped the process of the worm from the Task Manager and deleted entries from the Windows Registry Editor.

I read a post online about how to troubleshoot Windows PC from Trojan:Win32/Reveton.F infection and you can have a look also:

The Microsoft seurity tool did not get rid of the Revton virus on my computer. The Antimalware bytes and the Superantivirus programs did not find the infected files. I found in another forum that advised downloading and running the Hitman Pro.

I downloaded the Hitman Pro for removing it. The program got rid of the virus but now my computer does not shut off windows properly and I have to turn off the computer by turning of the power. On restart I get an error message saying "The program cant start because credui.dll is missing from ur computer. try reinstalling the program to fix this problem".

What should I do to overcome this problem?

Please help.

Hey guys, I have been hit with the new version of Trojan.Reveton i.e. Trojan.Reveton.O. It has simply made my PC unresponsive and obstructed to initiate several applications like Photoshop MS Word and several others. I was really in a mess. I searched a lot about this Trojan but got the right information and its proper removal information here at -

<Removed for COC>

If your PC also encountered with the same Trojan then you can consult the same link. I am sure you will be helped.

All the best!
