Best Way to Remove Conficker

So your anti-virus is popping up telling you are infected with the dreaded conficker virus. You attempt to remove and after your antivirus forces you to restart your system it pops right back up requesting that you run another hour long full removal again. Well as im sure you know this just wont work. So exactly what do you need in order to remove Conficker virus infection.

Step one: Gather your Resources.

So lucky enough the conficker virus does not stop internet access or send you to random website when you try to do a search. You will need a few tools in order to help you remove conficker.

1. Knowledge of Safe mode

2. d.exe from Symantec

3. Microsoft update KB962007

4. KidoKiller.exe from Kaspersky

All three components you can get through the links below. but the knowledge of safe mode is a requirement in order to complete the removal process. Also there most likely is multiple infections and if you do not have a full antivirus you should consider getting one.

In order to enter safe mode follow these simple steps

1. Shut down your machine completely.

2. Start the computer up and tap the F8 key continually

3. If you did the timing correctly you should see a black screen with several options

4. Use the up and down arrow to select Safe Mode with Networking and hit Enter

5. You will now see a wall of text start scrolling a crossed your screen. Don't be alarmed this is normal for starting in safe mode.

6. Your normal log in will appear. Log in

7. A popup will occur saying You are entering Safe Mode, Select yes.

8. Welcome to Safe Mode

9. Now download and run step 2 and step 4. These tools do not need to be installed and can quickly run on multiple machines at the same time. Just make sure that to get the most up to date version of each of the conficker removal tools.

Now make sure to download the Microsoft update KB962007 so it closes the hole in your system. This is imperative as you will end up just being infected in the future.

After you finish running the Kidokiller.exe and D.exe you will need to restart your system. It will boot into normal mode and your antivirus should stop alerting you of the infection. You should consider changing your antivirus if conficker got past it. Also you don't know what else could be infecting your system. I would recommend that you run a full security suite scan on your system after the removal is complete.
