7 Thoughts on “How to get rid of “You are about to be logged off” virus

  1. perfect, works, thx!

  2. On my friends pc with windows 8. It’s a very interesting virus, I must say. But it’s pretty poorly made. Anyone can make a virus shut down a pc, even I could if I wanted to. This is however, dangerous to people who do not have a tech savvy friend. My friend is lucky I know about this stuff and I have had prior experience with this. Even faced my old nemesis iLivid on a school computer and the computer ran fine after it was gone.

    Won’t work cz its logged off first before I can do that

  4. Hi, I had the “You will be logged off in xx minutes” problem recently. I did not see this “How-To” until I had already started in safe-mode, started MalwareBytes Premium, which I paid for & registered some years ago. It has always had free updates for version & the database. I did not do the RKill step, however, Malwarebytes has my system running stably. I just want to share my experience & recommend Malwarebytes Highly.
