    • The only way I’ve found to get around this is to use ‘Safe Mode’ and run the programs from there.

      It also is a lot easier if you have “mbam.exe” and “rkill.com” on a on the machine.

    My friends son and his young mate received this virus and all attempts by them failed. The PC would not enter safe mode after numerous tries.

    The pop-up Ukash virus malware really made me frustrated and scared, I almost paid for it via ukash. But then I searched it from Fixpcyourself and noticed it is a scam. It was so lucky that I got your site and had my PC back to normal again. Great help. Thanks!!!

    Got this virus a day ago on my Windows 7 XP version…after much searching I ran Norton NPE Crimeware virus software in Safemode. The installation required a shutdown and restart. After restart I accepted the license and ran the software. The software noted that file: dtresfflsceez.exe was running in my startup menu and was considered a virus. Then I visit your site and follow the all instruction. The file was removed successfully. Restarted my machine and ran a Quick scan and located additional tracking cookies. Removed the cookies, shutdown the machine and ran an additional full scan. All is working now…

  9. Thankyou so much. This was the best, most concise information out of all the sites I tried. Thanks again.

  10. Very good! It worked and now I know what to look out for! Thanks Very much

  11. Thank you thank you thank you. It worked, virus gone, laptop working again
