A real joker is this one. The obvious effect of Findgala virus is easy to stop. All one has to do is locate the Windows Hosts file and delete it. No more browser redirection. Yippeeeee.
But wait,, the browser redirection ruse is just to let you know that it has infected you. Any attempt to use an IE results in a shutdown and restart The same happens to Firefox.
Malwarebytes finds lots of infections but can’t clear the problem entirely, and neither can Superantispyware. Running them in safe mode doesn’t help either.
Anti-virus programs are rendered completely useless and can’t be uninstalled or re-installed.
Thanks to the author of Findgala, the only way that the infected computer is ever going to work again is to be completely re-installed.
Time to start over..
