    I have a virus/trojan called HotVideo and i would like to know how to manually remove it. I have the technical background but i can't seem to get rid of it.
    I can't seem to find any resources about this virus. A program called "HotVideo" keeps copying itself to my HD and running itself, providing links for pornographic content.
    Anyone knows hot to get rid of it?

    Thank you, and best regards,

    Hi RichardF,

    I think you got hit by a dialer.
    Please take a look at Spybot S&D, a program which should tackle this.
    Don´t forget to update before you scan.
    Let me know if it doesn´t do the job. We´ll have a closer look.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Hi snowman,

    If it´s the one I´m thinking, it´s all over his system.
    In that case I think it´s best to let Spybot handle it, before we ruin his internet-connection.

    Regards,

    Pieter
