    The problem is I can't get to these sites. The virus itself blocks you from anything that sounds like you are going to any anti virus download site. It either redirects or says page not found.

Quick way to kill if you are infected.
1. dir *.* /ahs in \System32 folder
2. If you see a .DLL file (not always .dll) then you are probably infected.
3. Using process explorer, search for the name you see, then close the handle of the file. If you do not find it in process explorer then it is not active yet but proceed to 4 anyway.
4. Take ownership of the file
5. Delete file
6. Check \WINDOWS\TASK for any job file that does not belong there
7. Look for Autorun.inf file in root. If there, take ownership and delete
8. Reboot
good lack;))))

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

    How can i delete multiple operating system

    Right Click on My Computer, Click on Properties, Click on Advanced, under System Start-Up and Recovery Option, Click on Settings then Under The default Operating System you should see, The Time taken to dislplay list of OS and recovery Options When needed, just change the two numbers from 30 to '0', then click on OK, and restart your system. This will stop you from seeing Multiple OS When you boot up your system...and will go directly to your default.
    Hope It Helps!
