I got infected with the ICE Ransomware 6 hours ago and I've been trying every suggestion I can to kill this thing off. Hitman Kickstart didn't seem to work - it would start loading Windows XP Pro and then restart before it loaded, without Hitman. Kaspersky spent ages downloading 84 kb of updates which seem to do diddly squat. I tried to use a XP Pro disc to repair but got nowhere. I'm presently entering hour 2 of what Bitdefender thought was a 23 minute scan and it has found only one infected item in all that time - what it is I won't know for another 3 minutes and 42 seconds, which it has been estimating as the time left for well over an hour. This forum seems to get results - it keeps coming up in Google, so I figured I'd register and see if I could get some help!

Once the USB has burnt then

[*]Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to the flash drive.

  • Reboot your system using the boot USB you just created.
    Note : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from USB follow the steps here
  • As the Programme needs to detect your hardware and load the operating system, I would recommend a nice cup of tea whilst it loads :)
  • Your system should now display a Reatogo desktop.
  • Locate the flash drive and run FSRT
  • The tool will start to run.

  • When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the flash drive. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.
