VIRUSfighter

This is a known issue: restart VIRUSfighter and select “Scan” from the user interface, and the scan information will be shown. Functionality is not impaired, but the user interface issue will be fixed in the next version of products.

For stability reasons, SPYWAREfighter and VIRUSfighter are integrated when installed together, so updating one will update both.

VIRUSfighter only scans for spyware (as an option) when SPYWAREfighter is installed, as part of our “suite” presentation of installed SPAMfighter software, so you need both products to protect you from viruses and spyware.

SPYWAREfighter only scans for viruses if VIRUSfighter is installed. If VIRUSfighter is installed, then customers are STRONGLY recommended NOT to have another antivirus installed. But, if you are using JUST SPYWAREfighter, then yes, you can install another antivirus software (and are strongly recommended to do so.)

Open your VIRUSfighter menu from “Start -> All Programs -> Fighters -> VIRUSfighter -> VIRUSfighter” Click on “User ID” in the lower right corner of your VIRUSfighter menu. You will get a Popup where you can see your UserID.

A new and very malicious ransomware virus is spreading on the internet. Previously it was only found on dodgy sites like porn or illegal download pages. Not it has unfortunately also begun to populate on normal sites and on pages with videos being played.

But, luckily with a little work it can be removed

The first thing one notice is that a webcam picture of you has been taken. This is very disturbing to see but fear not this will not be displayed anywhere. This is just a way for the perpetrators to scare you to pay.

Not all sites where the virus is placed are helpful in closing them down. This makes it very difficult for the police, FBI and investigators to shut them down. These scam artists are furthermore almost impossible to find.

Removing the Ukash Virus
Although there are reports of different kinds of Ukash virus, this guide should help most people out there who have been infected by this horrible virus. Please read through the entire guide before starting.

1. Close down your computer with a hard reboot (pressing down on the OFF button).

2. Remove or turn of any wireless or internet cable connection.

3. Startup your computer while pressing down F8 to activate Safe Mode options (a few computers like Medion you might have to press something else).

4. When in the Safe Mode Options menu choose: “Restart in Safe mode with COMMAND PROMPT (very important).

5. You will see a Command Line when your Windows has booted in Safe Mode (there is a chance you have to login with your Windows password first).

6. In the command line window, write: RSTRUI.EXE which will prompt the Windows Restore function to open.

1. Choose a Restore file from a time you know your computer was working properly (to be safe go at least a couple of days back).
2. Windows will not restore itself. This might take up to 20-30 minutes depending on size.
3. Now you have to clean the virus leftovers when your Windows is backed up.
4. Download and install the free ChicaPC-Shield and do a scan to find any leftover threats.

If you are lucky enough there will be no leftovers since the restoration cleared everything. However in most cases there will be files to clean.

1. After your reboot you might experience a popup with a random file name like “wgsdhsagss.exe” or something related, which says “can not be found”. This is nothing to be worried about. You can manually find this reference in the Registry or use SLOW-PCfighter to remove these entries.

NB. Your antivirus or spyware program might have been turned off and the signature database deleted from the system. Just reinstall the product and you are good to go.
