    Default win32.downloader.gen

    Sorry if I'm bugging anybody but I am looking for how to get rid of the win32 malware. I have run as an admin and it says unexpected error in fixing problems (cannot create file "C:\ Windows \wininitini" Access is denied) I have searched the forum and maybe I missed it. Any help would be appreciated.

    Did you run as Admin on your computer or using elevated permissions within Spybot as shown here: win32.downloader.gen

    Hello suger1000,

    For someone to take a look at the system please start a topic in the Malware Removal Forum and a volunteer analyst will advise when available.

    First see that forum's FAQ which also includes instructions in post #2 on how to provide DDS and aswMBR logs, which are used in the preliminary analysis.

    I ran the spybot and couldn't get it out this morning and deleted what I could than restarted the computer and hit the run as admin again, ran spybot again and this time it removed the win32. I did hit the admin yesterday and couldn't get it removed. Didn't do it hard enough. ?? I don't know but it's gone now.
