re: System infected with System Check Virus

Below is what you have to do to get rid of SystemCheck Virus:
Open task manager and kill SystemCheck Virus process under processes tab.
After that go through below location and delete files related to SystemCheck Virus:
%AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\System Check.lnk
%Desktop%\System Check.lnk
%StartMenu%\Programs\System Check\
%StartMenu%\Programs\System Check\System Check.lnk
%StartMenu%\Programs\System Check\Uninstall System Check.lnk
Once you have done that, go to start type "regedit " in search and click on OK. When your Registry Editor gets opened remove below SystemCheck Virus Registry file:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main "Use FormSuggest" = 'Yes'
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings "CertificateRevocation" = '0'
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings "WarnonBadCertRecving" = '0'
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\ActiveDesktop "NoChangingWallPaper" = '1'
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Associations "LowRiskFileTypes" =
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Attachments "SaveZoneInformation" = '1'
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer "NoDesktop" = '1'
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System "DisableTaskMgr" = '1'
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run ".exe"
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run ""
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system "DisableTaskMgr" = '1'
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download "CheckExeSignatures" = 'no'
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced "Hidden" = '0'
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced "ShowSuperHidden" = '0'
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ComDlg32\LastVisitedMRU "MRUList"

Re: System infected with System Check Virus

if above all steps not working to solve the issue and then i would like to suggest you to use the third party software to remove this virus on your system. even i have faced the same issue and after that i have just removed this virus by using the third party software and then your issue will get solved.

Re: System infected with System Check Virus

Please Help

Ive done the registry removal.
And removed sytem check from desktop and start menu
How do i remove those Temp files in your first instruction box. I ask because i still have missing programs and some trojans appear which Microfsoft security essentials and pc doctor remove (1 by MSE AND 2 by PC doctor) each time i reboot
Also Malware finds a couple each time I scan
But there must be a source bringing it all back everytime i reboot. Im more or less a self taught in the basics - but very basic
My pc wont open in safe mode with networking. had it 8 yrs and once i have this problem solved im saving all my importtant files into an external - I alrealdy have most on DVD.
Then im reloading OS and giving pc a spring clean and upgrade (with help from a techy)
First I want complete rid of System check - Which I dont seem to be able to do.
I presume - Did isay it no longer opens up - But i still have some missing programs.

Thats more or less full picture.

What kind of virus is infecting your pc? Download a tool called Malwarebytes and install it on your pc, scan your pc with it and it will create a log after that telling you what all infections were there in your pc. Read here for more instructions - How to Master MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware

Re: System infected with System Check Virus

Yeah Ive eventually run Malware - I have that program installed.
But for a while it wouldnt update, so wasnt proving succesful. It seems system check was also preventing me from opening Spybot.
I was getting an error code - think it was 0x80072efd
which I never had before I received this System Check hoax.
Anyhow after much researching and trying to delete some registry entries, I got uniblue Powersuite 2012. Which cleaned a whole load of registry issues (I read a lot of reviews before i committed to that)
Now im updated and can run spybot.
Only issues I have left is some programs I had which disappeared for a time are now back in my start menu but showing as empty. Stuff like Nero, Skype etc.
Also a few of these trojans (2 i think) keep reloading everytime I reboot. Although Im not at home to check if that is the case after my recent successes.
I cant give you a malware log im at work.

Hope that helps. Close to thinking im more or less ok. Just want to get all those programs back showing as empty, I dont beleive Ive lost them completely. I have gone to tools and changed to show hidden files btw. This helped to bring back my descktop icons, and some menu items.
