Hows the file going to run on boot-up? You didn't look everywhere.

Regedit: HKEY Current User > Software > Microsoft > Windows > Current Version > Run

There should be a key there.

You have not looked everywhere

Means they'll be more. Do you still have the virus? If so, zip it, password protect it password should be: infected

Send it to me via google drive, wikisend etc

From there, I can point out everything that the file drops

Sorry, I don't have any symptom of that virus now. I have connected two usb devices, 2 android devices, but no sign of making shortcut or something abnormal.

Thanks

Sorry life is busy, we are finishing major assignments in school.

As for your post. As people here and all over would say. Just because they're no symptoms, does NOT mean it's gone. Post an OTL log and MCShield log. I'm sure Essex or Argus or another remover can find something

Also, how does one go about trying to fix a windows activation error on a school computer? The key has been deleted. I told a tech, however. THeir solution is reinstall windows lol
