Re: How to eliminate System Check virus from windows 7

System check is a malicious program which make you believe that your computer is in danger it is from the same family of malware system fix ,data recovery ,Master utilities , system repair, etc. it is installed on your computer by itself without your permission and knowledge through the use of Trojan or some other malicious software. Always be careful before opening any attachments and downloading any files . if system check running on your computer then it will block your legal windows application and it also won?t allow you to download anything from the internet and it always displays you a fake message, so just try to remove this system check virus from your computer as early as possible.

If you have tried removing system check from your system with the help of MalwareBytes and Anti-malware and didn?t succeeded in it then this is because system check may be collection with TDSS Trojan-rootkit so in this case have to run TDSS killer in order to detect and remove this infection.
You have to download TDSS killer and place it to your desktop then open the TDSS killer folder then select rename by right click on it and type new name and simply select enter then double-click on TDSS killer icon you will see a screen just select start scan button from that screen to start scanning windows registry for TDSS Trojan ,if it is found any TDSS Trojan the windows will appear just select continue from that window to remove TDSS Trojan .once you done this restart your computer your system will be definitely free from the system check virus.

Re: How to eliminate System Check virus from windows 7

I think you can also remove system check virus from your windows7 computer with the help of Combofix ,first download the combofix and unzip to your desktop just make sure to close any open browser and also close all the Anti-virus and Anti-malware programs so they do not interfere in the running of combofix. And then double click on the combofix.exe and just follow the prompts if combofix will not run the rename it to myapp.exe and try again and please never rename combofix unless instructed and when finished it will produce a report for you .and finally your system get free from the system check virus.

Re: How to eliminate System Check virus from windows 7

I would like to recommend you to download and install Microsoft Malicious removal tool on your computer by this tool you can check for specific malicious software like blaster ,system check and mydoom etc. and if any infection found on your computer then with the help of this tool you can remove that infection or virus easily, it creates a report describing the outcome of any malware that is detected and removed by this tool after the detection and removal process and this tool is easily available on Microsoft update ,windows update and Microsoft download center. And I think you can remove the system check virus from your system with the help of this tool.

Re: How to eliminate System Check virus from windows 7

Hello, Thanks for all the tips! I have followed the steps outlined but after changing what was checked and unchecked in the "folder and search options" and clicking OK, nothing was revealed. I followed these steps a few times and even restarted and followed the steps again however each time no files were revealed.

Any suggestions?

PLEASE SEND HELP ASAP!!!

Are you facing with same problem of System Check virus in your windows 7 machine? Have you scanned your system with some antivirus software? Since, you cant view any sort of virus files associated with System Check virus, your system would be fine without it. You can even go into safe mode and then try to scan the pc.

Re: How to eliminate System Check virus from windows 7

I have followed the instruction of using Malwarebyte to remove the System Check malware. It seems working. Those numbered exe files are gone. However, I still cannot see the files. How do I bring back all those files/folders.

There is a free but effective application that is meant to restore the file and folder system of the computers attacked by the viruses, it called Unhider, just search it and download from google. After running this free application you will again see your files and folders just as they should be. Hope that helps.

Re: How to eliminate System Check virus from windows 7

Thanks for the information. I downloaded the unhider and ran it. Now I can see the files in the drivers. However, it only applies to driver C. I have to manually unhide the folders in other drivers.

There is another problem. When I click the Windows Start, I do not see the programs, except "Computer". Even Control panel is not in the list. When I access the "All Programs", although I can see all the program folder, but they are all empty. So try to open the folders in C:\Program Files. They are all there.
How do I get those programs back?

BTW, my system is Windows 7.

Re: How to eliminate System Check virus from windows 7

I think that the programs gets moved to a temp folder under the user account folder and you just have to find the temp folder and copy everything back to the start menu folder. I just finished with the instructions and it worked just great. There is a little tool to run to determine the location of the temporary folder. The path varies depending on the version of windows you have but the path will contain the following:

c:\......\smtmp

I just restored the main program folders items from

c:\....\Temp\smtmp\1

Yeah. I have found the smtmp. It is under user AppData\Local\Temp\smtmp
However, when I tried top copy the programs in smtmp\1 to user Start Menu, the windows reminded me that the file exists in the Start Menu. This Start Menu folder denied all the access. I have the Admin right but still cannot get access to this folder. I suspect that the files are still in the Start Menu, but they are hidden somehow. I don;t know how to restore them.

Re: How to eliminate System Check virus from windows 7

I downloaded and ran the script 'Take Ownership" against the following two folders:

C:\User\(user name)\Start Menu
C:\ProgramData\Start Menu

I don't see the difference between the smtmp\1 and the User Start Menu
However, there are differences between smtmp\4 and the ProgramData\Start menu. The smtmp\4 does contain the programs under subfolders, not the case for ProgramData\Start Menu

What options do I have at this point?
