Few days back my friend insert a usb drive in my computer and then my whole pc gets infected by email-worm.win32.rounce.b and created lots of readme.eml file in total around 4k Virus. shakehead , after 2 days of cleaning with lots of different anti virus and searching in google my pc is 95% safe now hopefully. I already reinstall my windows 3 times too. But today when I tried to do a final checkup with Eset Smart Security its detected one of my exe file as worm.win32.chir.B and made the files quarantined with this example name : "samplename.exe.vir" But I needed those file as they are too large and I dont have backup so I wanted to do test by scanning with kaspersky pure and It didnt found any virus in the file..... confused . So I am totally confused right now Is it false positive or my files is still infected?. I did checking of that file with kaspersky by removing Eset Smart Security and Changing the file name. Right now I have kaspersky and Malwarebytes installed in PC and both working together... So I would like to know can I still use those file which infections were got traced by Eset or I need to delete them ?

Hi Tuhin,

I am afraid that I can not provide you with an answer without having access to the files in question. However, it is possible that Eset made other alterations to them beside changing the extension to .vir, which could explain why they were not detected as infected by other security software.
Malwarebytes is very good against scareware and spyware, but not very effective against rootkits and complex viruses. However, as long as you have not installed the real time and firewall modules, it should not conflict with Kaspersky.

Cheers!

Hello, Robert Mateescu. Thank you for your reply. Before I did check those infected files with kaspersky pure I removed the extension .vir but its didnt found anything still. with kaspersky or malwarebyetes. I also tried the worm.win32.chirs.B virus Removal tools from AVG and had no luck with it. It didnt found any virus so I am gonna use the Northon virus removal tools to check if it did find it. Btw How can i give you access to the files which are infected? I have found 300 files with .vir extensions and those all required anyway I can clean the virus out and save the files without losing it? confused

Regards.

Hi Frank,

Try following the steps in this virus/malware removal guide: www.selectrealsecurity.com/malware-removal-guide
