FLV Player Virus? How can I get rid of it?

Following on from issues with my screen resolution keep changing, I suddenly found my PC very sluggish and a new desktop icon that I hadn't downloaded - FLV Player.

I've uninstalled it now several times using Revo Uninstaller and scanned my PC using Malwarebytes Mbam, Microsoft Security Essentials and CCcleaner and run Rkill (as suggested by another HUKD user). BUT I then had an issue with Peer Block booting on startup and throwing up error messages that I couldn't close.

Now though.......after rebooting my PC, FLV Player keeps installing at startup and taking over control of my PC. I cant do anything when it starts to boot.

Can anyone help or recommend a way to delete this rubbish from my PC?

might be just quicker to reinstall ... or use your recovery partition on laptop or PC if it has one
LazyDonkey, why are you ignoring me?

Anyway, if you want help, download HiJackThis and post up the log in here.


Would be a lot easier if you use TeamViewer.
LazyDonkey, I am having the same problem with the FLV Player, just worried it might be doing ,more than just sitting on the desk top. Have un-installed a few times run a full Microsoft Essential scan and a full Malware, but the tenacious little **** still comes back and, as you say takes over the computer. I don't know where it came from.

Were you able to fix it?
