    Hi People,

    I need help in getting hold of a mini OS or footprint OS to remove a virus from my father-in-laws laptop. Heis laptop has been infected by some kind of Ransom Malware asking for 100.

    I have been watching a video on youtube on how to remove by a company called BITEC.

    I would like to know will Puppy Linux work? His Operating System is Windows XP (I am using Win 7 and my Boot CD wont work on his laptop), RE-INSTALL is not an option.

    It'd probably be best to know exactly what malware it is first. What's the specific ransom message?

    Have you considered getting a console? PC's seem waaaay out of reach for your mental abilities.

    Don't suppose you've tried starting it in Safe Mode and running a fresh copy of a standalone anti-stuff client like SuperAntiSpyware downloaded on another machine? That is my only advice, and almost certainly wrong. But at least I'm trying ;)

    I'm not sure how the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre will help you here.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Re-install is always an option.

    Malwarebytes is proven adware and sends browsing data back to the chinese.

    I got a version of it last week, hilariously it uses the laptop webcam telling you that it you are being recorded by the old bill.

    Not what you want when you are hungover and knocking one out to cheerleader shower lesbians 6.

    Boot into safe mode with networking and download autoruns. Anything with a tick next to it is a virus. Don't worry if things look familiar, the virus parsing will mask itself as legitimate files. Untick them (there may be a lot of them if the virus is a multi host roote kit leech) once everything is unticked restart the PC. Sorted.

    Called it

    Watching that video, Safe mode doesn't work, blue screen's all the time. Needs a boot CD of some sort but Puppy Linux doesn't seem to be able to change the registry. Worth a try to download Puppy Linux and delete the .exe file and see it safe mode works.
