Hi guys,

I dont know if this has been posted before sorry for duplication (if any). My Pc with Windows 7 (32bit) has become virtually non usable after i got the virus Runouce. I did a clean installation of Windows 7 but it is still there... scanned with malwarebytes anti malware and removed the virus but after i restarted the PC the virus came back. Tried Safe Mode but nothibg is working... i am attaching few error logs and scan log here in the post archived in zip. Any help will be appreciated.

What is the name of the virus being reported to you? The name usually starts with W32.

"Most antivirus programs identify runouce.exe as malware—e.g. Microsoft identifies it as Virus:Win32/Chir.B@mm, and TrendMicro identifies it as PE_Chir. B-O or PE_CHIRUX.B."
- https://www.file.net/process/runouce.exe.html

Once removed, try creating a read-only folder in "C:\Windows\system32" named "runouce.exe" to prevent it from coming back.

Well, if it retirns after a (proper) reinstall, it means that *somewhere* it is still there (like on another device on the same lan, the installations files, etc.).

The creation of a read only folder might be a "temporary" workaround, still it needs to be understood where it remains resident and kill this possible source of re-infection.

Thanks for replying. I have tried removing it using Malwarebytes Anti malware. It removed the virus but when i restarted the pc it came back. Computer is overheating due to the virus and almost every software fails to start. I have scanned the other drives like D, E, F shown the hidden system files it was no where.

That virus (actually the whole family of similar viruses) will be *everywhere* on your system, under a zillion different filenames.

Try running Combofix following EXACTLY what is suggested here:

Hello, as Jaclaz had suggested i downloaded ComboFix and tried to use combofix to clean my computer. When I try to run the program, I get an alert saying, 

"!! ALERT !! It is NOT SAFE to continue!
The contents of the ComboFix package has been compromised.
Please download a fresh copy from:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Note: You may be infected with a file patching virus (Virut)"

now only option left to me is format the hdd and reinstall Windows or Installing a Linux Distro with Wine...

Thanks all for support. after i failed to Run ComboFix i downloaded the w32.virut.cf removal tool from link below and executed it. : https://us.norton.com/online-threats/w32.virut.cfremovaltool-2009-022016-4444-99-writeup.html

After scanning and Cleaning by This tool in installed ComboFix and executed it i got the following log:

After Scanning as in Log i got to know that my system file userinit.exe is corrupted and is a malware. I furthe scanned it online on http://virustotal.com it was detected as W32.virut.

In the last i downloaded userinit.exe for Win 7 and replaced it using System file replacer CMD tool it fixed my pc. Thanks all specially Jaclaz...
