    Hi Guys,

    Any advise, I'm trying to help a newbie friend remove "BraveSentry" trojan. This rat was born March 8, 2006. So far it has escaped EWIDO on line scan. Also "System Restore" fails, perhaps rat technology knocks out system restore.

    Thanks

    It would be best to go to one of the boards specializing in malware removal, where you'll get the best of help.

    Here are a few:

    Hi Rico

    I agree with TonyKlein's views

    Disregard that link I gave you as it just led to a site to download a trial software program (NoAdware)

    Not only that, chances are you are infected with more than "just" BraveSentry.

    Helpers at the forums I listed will help you clean ALL malware from your computer.

    Hello PrevxCares.

    My friend reported that Prevx fails to remove "BraveSentry." One component of the trojan was jailed, but upon reboot the rat is back!. Should you have any furter suggestions regarding Prevx or manual removal, I'll gladly pass the along to the infected.

    Take Care

    As I said before:

    BraveSentry is a pretty common parasite, and it is routinely being removed from infectees' computers at the boards I mentioned. However, you DO need a human being to assess your particular configuration through analysis of a Hijack This log run on the infected machine.

    Also there will very likely be more than just BraveSentry that will need to be dealt with...

    I hope your problems with BraveSentry are sorted.

    If not, Prevx1 latest version includes a powerful new clean up which should now fix your friend's problems with this.
