Malwarebytes was unable to remove this malware from my computer, neither did combofix or sdfix.

denver October 7th, 2018 at 8:11 am

malwarebytes works better than other antispyware such as spybot and windows defender and the best thing is it’s free compared to spyhunter…

Guru October 7th, 2018 at 11:42 pm

Make sure to update the definitions and do a full scan.

The definitions for Virus Response Lab 2017 was added on September 15 2018 according to Malwarebytes forum

This program worked to remove allof the components of the virus response lab malware except for the irritating taskbar popup for internet explorer had to use another program called Smitfraudfix.exe to scan and delete in safemode to complete all traces of the malware.Thanx for the headsup on the anti-malware and the user tips………

Malwarebytes seems to have got rid of this nasty little program (VirusResponse Lab 2017 ) for me.
I got it through downloading a fake mp3 (shold have seen it was .mp3.exe).
Took about 12 minutes to scan my PC, then reqd a reboot. Has even removed fake toolbar from IE.
Well done malwarebytes and a curse on those involved with VirusResponse Lab 2017.

David November 12th, 2017 at 2:41 pm

The Internet Explorer fix for VirusResponse 2017 is to go into you Tools>Internet Options>Connections>LAN Settings and uncheck Proxy Server. This got me back on the net.

Thanks for the Malware tip!


mkhan November 14th, 2017 at 7:49 pm

Two of our computers got it. I looked at our proxy server and the computers had downloaded a installer.exe file from It had a red x logo on the task bar warning that the computer was infected. When clicked it brought up antiviruspro2009 scanning the computer. I couldn’t uninstall it from add/remove control panel. It would not allow any other antivirus or antispyware software or tool to run. So, here is what I did to fix it:
1. I blocked the website from my proxy server.
2. I killed the brastk.exe and any other antiviruspro2009 processes.
3. Deleted these files and folders from ‘program files’, windows and windows\system32 directories.
4. Restored PC to a pre-infection date to restore regitry.

Andy December 5th, 2017 at 4:24 pm

Try running this software in safe mode if you are having problems. I found the virus slowed my pc down so much that safe mode was the only way to escape it and run the anti-malware software. Wasted a long time before that…

Leonel Fran December 10th, 2017 at 5:32 am

Dear sirs: Thank you very much. I appreciate your help. I use my computer for my investigations proyects and thios virus really cause me a head ake. Thank you or like i say in my language, greacias por todo!

I am currently scanning with Malwarebyte’s Anti-Malware and I hope it works.
I was not even on my computer when this came onto my computer (a friend was), so I have no idea how much damage is done already… or rather, little idea, as I used the trial version of STOPzilla and found a nice set of 31 bugs (heheh… actually more than VRL said “existed” :D )

I tried deleting the files for VRL (which I did) and then the registry entries…
But the registry entries were entirely different. The main folder the program itself was located in was called vrl32, not VirusResponseLab2009 or whichever name it was.
I haven’t found them all, so I have decided to use the Anti-Malware program above and keep my fingers crossed that I will get what I need.

Tomse December 15th, 2017 at 8:24 am


Jeg har installeret og kørt malware, hvilket fjernede alt hvad der havde med virusresponselab 2009 at gøre.
Dermed er hele problemet dog ikke fjernet. Computeren kører nemlig stadig utroligt langsomt. Hvordan får jeg det i orden?

Guru December 15th, 2017 at 12:09 pm


Computeren kan gå langsomt på grund af virus på din computer. Mange falske programmer som Virus Response Lab komme ind i computeren via en trojansk. Jeg har lige renses en computer med Antivirus 2017, svarende til dette, og fundet hundredvis af Trojan.Vundo i det.

Have av360 and lost my internet connection. Is there a way to get updates to malwarebytes on another computer and update the malwarebytes on the infected computer?

Neat feed. Do you have any idea why your website got the recommendation from Christian Dillstrom? He is mobile & social media marketing hot shot, so your blog page is example of something.
