hi

if necessary do the work in Safe Mode with Networking

Windows Vista

Using the F8 Method:

  1. Restart your computer.
  2. When the computer starts you will see your computer's hardware being listed. When you see this information start to gently tap theF8 key repeatedly until you are presented with theWindows Vista Advanced Boot Options.
  3. Select the Safe Mode with Networking option using the arrow keys.
  4. Then press the enter key on your keyboard to boot into Vista Safe Mode.
  5. When Windows starts you will be at a typical logon screen. Logon to your computer and Vista will enter Safe mode.
  6. Do whatever tasks you require, and when you are done, reboot to go back into normal mode.

read the below information about what it is and how to remove it

it changes names but it is the same Malware program

 

Win 7 Antispyware 2012, Vista Antivirus 2012, and XP Security 2012 are all names for the same rogue anti-spyware program. This family of rogues is promoted in two ways. The first is through the use of fake online antivirus scanners that state that your computer is infected and then prompt you to download a file that will install the infection. The other method are hacked web sites that attempt to exploit vulnerabilities in programs that you are running on your computer to install the infection without your knowledge or permission. Regardless of how it is installed, once it is running on your computer it will install itself as a variety of different program names and graphical user interfaces depending on the version of Windows that is running. Regardless of the name, though, they are all ultimately the same program with just a different skin on it. This rogue goes by different program names, which I have listed below based upon the version of Windows that it is installed on:

Windows XP Rogue Name
Windows Vista Rogue Name
Windows 7 Rogue Name
XP Antispyware 2012 Vista Antispyware 2012 Win 7 Antispyware 2012
XP Antivirus 2012 Vista Antivirus 2012 Win 7 Antivirus 2012
XP Security 2012 Vista Security 2012 Win 7 Security 2012
XP Home Security 2012 Vista Home Security 2012 Win 7 Home Security 2012
XP Internet Security 2012 Vista Internet Security 2012 Win 7 Internet Security 2012

Vista Anti-Virus 2011, Vista Total Security 2011, and Win 7 Home Security include some of the names that a new name-changing rogue will randomly use when installing itself on a victim's computer.  When this particular rogue is installed, it will install itself as a variety of different program names, with each having their own graphical user interface depending on the version of Windows that the computer is running.

I have been infected with the vista home security 2012 virus, and can't open any programs, including internet or anti-virus software.. HELP!


  • I had faced this problem recently......and it really took lot of time to remove that malware. So, basically how it works is, it makes changes to the registry settings of the system and does not allow the user to run any of the .exe files. It did not allow me to do the system restore. My browsers were not functioning properly. Mozilla was fortunately working. It keeps on scanning and gives you false warnings about the system. (e.g potential threats found etc etc!!). 

  • First, if none of your internet browsers are not working, then try booting it from safe mode with networking option. This will allow your computer to connect to internet. Before trying to boot from safe mode with networking option, try doing (alt+ctrl+delete) to open up task manager and try to end the process which starts with 3 letter word.exe.....thts the malware which has attacked your PC. Now, after this, try running any internet browser and if it does not work then boot it from safe mode with networking option. 

  • I downloaded 2 or 3 antimalware softwares (spyware doctor, malwarebytes) but none of them removed virus. It just scanned my drives and reported the results. If you want to remove those malwares, you have to purchase full version. So, basically i followed this tutorial but I made some little changes.


(Did not ran Fixncr.reg as mentioned in the above link as I was able to run some of my files. If none of your files are opening then try running Fixncr.reg which will change the registry settings and allow you to run .exe files)

I did following steps to make my system work:
  1. Downloaded RKILL from the above link, installed it and ran it. After some seconds, i got message in the notepad saying that malware has been killed. 
  2. Then, i was able to run the .exe files. So, I ran system restore and my PC was back to normal operating mode.
I did not ran malwarebytes which has been mentioned in the above link because it just scans the system but does not remove any viruses. So, my suggestion is try to do system restore after RKILL and I am pretty sure you will find your system back to its normal condition.....

Hope this helps!!!!!!
