Hello I have a persistent issue with this piece of shit malware. Upon booting Microsoft Security Essentials warns me of the presence of win32/Coin Miner. After removing it I re-boot to find the malware is still there and MSE prompts me to remove it, I re-boot and it's still there... Really need help on this one Thanks
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. DL it and scan with it.
Have you tried other, more powerful anti-virus programs? Do a scan with MalwareBytes if you don't want to download a whole new anti-virus. [editline]24th April 2012[/editline] sonofabitch
I'm currently doing a complete scan with that Malwarebytes anti-Malware program, should take some time.
Coinminer? Does the virus actually hijack your PC for bitcoin mining or something? That's actually pretty crafty.

My donating time? Naah (You're instead of your... ) But yeah, you are mining bitcoins for somebody right now.
