I've read a previous topic in this forum regarding this virus and after many posts, the Ramnit virus problem wasn't resolved.
I have a PC running WindowsXP that has been infected - is there a process that works or do I save myself the effort and simply re-format the hard drive? (I've just picked up the PC from a computer repair store; they advised the latter).
Please note that the Ramnit virus will not allow access to the internet so I'm guessing any solution will involve downloading a program to my laptop; burning to a CD; then rebooting the PC from that CD. I have pre-empted this by following the instructions under "If you cannot Boot the computer" at http://forum.avast.c...p?topic=53253.0 and burnt the OTLPNet program to a CD and copied the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool to a flash drive.
The only anti-virus program on the PC is MS Security Essentials - and Ramnit obviously got passed it!
Looking forward to your response.
