    I got this infection yesterday. It blocked AVG and Spybot from opening.
    Cox provides free Mcafee, so I went to the Cox site and when they
    re-directed me to the Mcafee site it would not open. It kept rebooting
    me. Fortunately I had recently cloned my disk. I installed the infected
    disk under my clone and AVG found the Renos trojan. Deleting it did
    not fix the problem. I read on one site that this trojan probably
    originated in Russia. I had been Google searching for MP3s of a Russian
    singer I found on YouTube that I liked. This is when the trouble
    started. I never click on any pop-up so I thought I was safe from this
    kind of attack. Can anyone tell me if just clicking on a site from a
    Google search infect you?

    Same problem. Windows Defender has removed it 8 times over two days, but it keeps returning! Arrrgh!

I posted earlier with this problem. McAfee- for 50-60$ per year did nothing to help me. But Windows Defender had/has a fix posted on their main page. IT WORKED! Took a couple tries, but completely removed this trojan from my Vista machine. Don't know why this patch was not automatically included in their Defender updates, but they say a large number of people were getting this trojan, so they made this program to clean it out. I am soooo disappointed in McAfee not being on top of this problem that I just might switch to AVG- or Norton! I emailed McAfee and told them so, and they responded- (paraphrased), " we get 2000 virus updates per day out to you, and one gets by us, and you're upset. Sorry."
Again- the fix is on the left side of the Windows Defender home page!

How to remove win32/mebroot?

Hi there,
Well this Win32/mebroot is a trojan and you need a trojan killer to remove this. you can remove this by two ways -
1. Online - means when your computer runs the operating system and you can install the trojan killer and search for the trojan.
2. Offline - in this you don't need to start the operating system of your computer, you just need the offline CD of a trojan killer that starts automitally before windows start and then you just make a search for the trojan.
Please follow the below link to get your trojan killer -

Good Luck

HI ! My name is Vinod. I hava Compaq Presario V6604 AU 2007 model. I am using dual booting system in my laptop with windows vista home basic and windows 7. My laptop came with windows vista pre-installed....

I know of problems running Vista and Win7 from the same hard drive and it is usually fixed by having Win7 as the main boot on "C" and Vista on "E" a separate partition.
The sound drivers are very similar and usually only give trouble when mixing 32 bit with64 bit.
Hope this helps
