Then downloaded Combofix and ran in safe mode. Then Spyware Doctor said it "blocked" the braviax threat again. Download SpyHunter on another clean computer, burn it to a USB flash drive, DVD/CD, or any preferred removable media, then install it on your infected computer and run SpyHunter's malware scanner. During the SDfix run there were two occasions (one while in safe mode and one after the reboot) when a message was presented about a .dll file not loading.

Steve Tony ― August 16, 2009 - 4:50 pm Hey, Just wanted to say thanks for this fix. Delete all entries that relate to cru629. Any information that will help to document this file is welcome. They were able to clean some of the parts of this version of the virus as of 7/25/08. PJBeee ― July 25, 2008 - 10:54 pm The above instructions worked
I already had CounterSpy (version 3 with current defs) on the infected system and it would not see or remove BRAVIAX, so I downloaded and installed SuperAntiSpyware and it did the SDFix is not a virus. For billing issues, please refer to our "Billing Questions or Problems?" page. Run Malwarebytes - it will find other bad files and registry entries and fix these.
I tried control alt delete, and I dont show any Applications working, and the processes are up. Examples of fake security programs belonging to the Braviax family include Win 7 Anti-virus, Vista AntiVirus, XP Antivirus, Win 7 Internet Security, Vista Security, and XP Security. But then was computer immediately again infected - NOD32 informed. Braviax installs on your computer through a trojan and may infect your system without your knowledge or consent.
after reboot they found the same trojans again and again. I couldnt find the answer anywhere! The version of Braviax that infected my PC would not allow me to install SDFix until after I had changed the program name to SDFix2. Thank you.

Can't Remove Malware? wanner ― July 5, 2008 - 11:51 am Wished you'd mentioned what Windows systems this is compatible with…wasted a lot of time trying to get the SDFIX.exe file to open in Rebooted the computer after SDfix was done. Run a Braviax scan/check to successfully detect all Braviax files with the SpyHunter Spyware Detection Tool.
It worked fine. Ha-HAH! If in NY I\'ll buy you a beer, if elsewhere I\'ll Paypal you the beer, LOL.
Thank you thank you Alex ― April 14, 2008 - 10:09 am Been really suffering with braviax etc (its a real nasty one!) but this seems to have worked….only time
Solutions: Your computer may have malware hiding in memory that prevents any program, including SpyHunter, from executing on your computer. You must keep in mind that the widest and most commonly available way of disseminating viruses and other malware is through the internet. I was terrified like a little CHILD when faced with braviax and cru629! I installed ERUNT and ran it.
