I'm having the same issue. I have Symantec AntiVirus and it won't delete the virus, even in Safe Mode. I've had a look through my registry but can't find any of the entries that I'm meant to be deleting (as per the Symantec link).

Please help! I just can't seem to get rid of this virus!

You could try......

Click on Start, click Run, and then type devmgmt.msc and click OK
On the View menu click on Show hidden devices
Browse to Non-Plug and Play Drivers and you should see something like TDSSserv.sys

Highlight that driver and right click on it and select DISABLE
Now RESTART your computer.

Download a copy of Malwarebytes but DO NOT run it yet.
Rename the downloaded installer file to any generic name such as your own name but keep the .EXE extension on the file and run it.
Once the program is installed go to the UPDATE tab and try to update the program if you can.
Then go to the SCANNER tab and run a Quick Scan and allow MBAM to fix anything found.

Malwarebytes Download Link (Clicking on the links below will immediately start the download dialogue window.)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
