Do you keep regular backups? Now would also be a good time to back up all your data to an external hard drive or flash drive(s).
And please go ahead and upgrade to SP1.
If you get any more blue screens post the DMPs.
And in a couple days, run another safe mode full scan.
Ah... so after running the MicrosoftFixit50267.msi, then that should be it? No problem whatsoever?Well I think Microsoft is terrible for slipping Bing in with your Windows Updates but it is safe. Still, if you don't use it I suggest you uninstall it.
As for the HOSTS fix, you do not have to provide any addresses. I've never used the fix-it tool myself because I don't want mine reset so you may have to tell me what it says/asks. What I had hoped is that you click the "Fix this problem" which starts a download of MicrosoftFixit50267.msi and when that downloads you run it. Hopefully it resets your hosts file to the default (which is really just that text you posted) and it's that simple.
Looks like I could try this one. Haven't heard of this until you mentioned it.
Thank you for your endless support, sir. Speaking of BSODs, I just got twice in a row. One happened when I tried opening a game (Sims) and the other one was when I was typing a reply to this thread to report what happened. If this info be of any help, I think most of my BSODs occur when I'm running a major program (like a game) or when I'm browsing the net with multiple tabs open (plus downloading random things).With a virus like this I cannot make an absolute promise. But it looks good so far. You should monitor your system closely for a while by running the safe mode scan every 2 or 3 days for a couple weeks.
Disable Web Navigation1.0 and if possible delete/uninstall it.
And please run windows updates to install SP1.
Post DMPs if you get any more BSODs and let us know if future scans pick up any more of the virus.
Thank you. I'll definitely have a look at them. Question, could the constant reappearance of BSODs be a symptom of my hardware being damaged? (Like to the point of replacing it with a new one?I'll have a look at those crash files.
But some other time you can download and run Windows Defender Offline. It will create a CD / DVD / USB and will boot and scan your hard drive offline.
It's free and viruses can't operate when windows is not running.
