New Plug-in Available

New Plug-in Available – VX2 Cleaner

Lavasoft’s new plug-in VX2 Cleaner detects the malware VX2 and offers you the ability to remove it from your computer. Some users have experienced a very difficult variant of VX2 which cannot be removed by Ad-Aware. For those users which have this variant, we have developed a plug-in to help you remove this VX2 variant.

This VX2 variant registers itself in a way, which gives it system privileges. It also prevents the user from viewing this information by removing the user’s rights to do so. Furthermore it constantly monitors the registry and prevents any attempts to remove its associated values. This makes it very difficult for the user to manually remove it.

The VX2 Cleaner works with all editions of Ad-Aware 6 build 181.

How to use Lavasoft’s VX2 Cleaner plug-in

Close Ad-Aware 6 build 181 and Ad-Watch (if running)
Download the free VX2 Cleaner here
Install the VX2 Cleaner
Start Ad-Aware 6 build 181
Go to “Plug-ins”
Select the VX2 Cleaner plug-in and click “Run Plugin”
If your computer isn’t infected, click “Close”.

If your computer is infected

Select “Clean system”
Reboot your computer
Scan your computer with Ad-Aware
Remove any VX2 objects detected
Reboot your computer again
Run a second scan to make sure the files have been removed from your computer

More information on VX2 can be found in the TAC database
