    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?

    msconfig / startup tab and stop it starting untick it then uninstall it from safe mode

    where did you get the flv player from ?

    Strange thats it's a virus . however if you can give the proper filename for it or who makes this program ?

    Shout at the screen while brandishing a weapon.

    Also you haven't run an antivirus scanner - do a complete scan with AVG or Avira as malware scanners may not pick up virus signatures (probably an executable somewhere, most likely C:\Windows or system32 that keeps reinstalling it).

    Honestly, don't bother.

    I waited a week for them to come back to me on my problem, and I ended up fixing it myself

    No idea.

    Malwarebytes Mbam comes up with:- Adware and Hijack Start Page against FLV Player. The BAD link is: flvdirect.iamwired.net/

    Carried out all checks, but when I reboot it pops up again ??/ :x

    back to safe mode and do a system restore, picking a date to when you didnt have the problem

    Cheers, but does Windows 7 automatically create restore points as I don't have any? Do you have to set these manually?

    can you post the log of malware bytes in here please. update it then when it tells you you have a problem then tick the bit that fixes it but post log either way. Does Mbam tell you it will fix it on restart btw ?

    I'll try everything again.

    Does Mbam tell you it will fix it on restart btw ? Yes.......then on startup, FLV starts loading and taking over again.

    use the last 3 links i posted then update security essentials from the m$ link update mbam


    you neeed to run rkill before running mbam as well

    LoudMo if you have it delete it.... also safe mode and empty the temp folder, get unlocker as well and force delete if in use. kill process etc

    Cheers for all your help, but you kinda lost me there.

    Plus each time I try to run a fix it asks me to reboot, if I dont that seems to cause a conflict. If I do.....the FLV problem comes back.

    try spybot as well

    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?
