Exterminate It! Antimalware


Known threats:699,742 Last Update:November 20, 22:46


I just wanted to thank you. My computer was frozen last night thanks to an online Easter card that was sent to me via the funcards site. I couldn't do anything but open windows.
I tried to open the exterminate it program that I purchased last year but the funcards site was blocking it, too!
I decided to purchase a new year of service (knowing my current one is going to expire sometime this month). It took two hours of searching, but exterminate it fixed my computer last night.
I have no idea how you all do it, but I would be lost without your service.
Thank you!!!

Why Is It Important to Remove Malware Files?^

It is imperative that you delete malware-associated files as soon as possible because they can be used - or are already being used - to inflict serious damage on your PC, including:

  • Disrupting the normal functioning of the operating system or rendering it completely useless.
  • Hijacking valuable private information (credit card numbers, passwords, PIN codes, etc.)
  • Directing all your Web searches to the same unwanted or malicious sites.
  • Dramatically slowing down your computer.
  • Gaining total control of your PC to spread viruses and trojans and send out spam.

How to Remove TDSSnmxh.log^

  1. To enable deleting the TDSSnmxh.log file, terminate the associated process in the Task Manager as follows:
    • Right-click in the Windows taskbar (a bar that appears along the bottom of the Windows screen) and select Task Manager on the menu.
    • In the Tasks Manager window, click the Processes tab.
    • On the Processes tab, select TDSSnmxh.log and click End Process.
  2. Using your file explorer, browse to the file using the paths listed in Location of TDSSnmxh.log and Associated Malware.

  4. Click Yes in the confirm deletion dialog box.
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 for each location listed in Location of TDSSnmxh.log and Associated Malware.
  6. Notes:

    • The deletion of TDSSnmxh.log will fail if it is locked; that is, it is in use by some application (Windows will display a corresponding message). For instructions on deleting locked files, see Deleting Locked Files.
    • The deletion of TDSSnmxh.log will fail if your Windows uses the NT File System (NTFS) and you have no write rights for the file. Request your system administrator to grant you write rights for the file.

Deleting Locked Files^

You can delete locked files with the RemoveOnReboot utility. You can install the RemoveOnReboot utility from here.

  2. Restart your computer.

The file will be deleted on restart.

Note: In the case of complex viruses that can replicate themselves, malware files can reappear in the same locations even after you have deleted those files and restarted your computer. Exterminate It! Antimalware can effectively eradicate such viruses from your computer.
