Meydfv.sys Driver And Win32.Netsky Spyware Alert Trojan
» My computer was recently infected with the Fake Worm.Win32.Netsky Spyware Alert trojan. To try to address the issue, unfortunately, I now receive an error saying that the following critical driver is missing: Windows\System32\Drivers\meydfv.sys. I tried booting up with a vista installation disk to repair the error, but it failed. I'm not sure what to do at this point.
Worm Win32 Netsky, also known as Worm.Win32.Netsky, is part of a rogue anti-malware program. Once infected with the program, pop-up alerts appear telling you that your computer is infected with Worm Win32 Netsky and that you must purchase an anti-malware tool to remove the infection. This is simply a trick to get you to send your financial information to a remote hacker. Rather than waste your money, remove Worm Win32 Netsky.
In case that Win32 Netsky disguises itself as meydfv.sys, you can use DLL Suite fix this kind of problem. Because Win32 Netsky replace the real Windows driver Meiudf.sys, and sys files can be affected not to used normally. After the removal of this virus by an anti-virus program on your side, we have to make up the loss to the performance of sys files and other associated dll files.
For this annoying problem, DLL Suite is recommended to fix the error resulting from any related dll files. It enables automatic scan and fix of errors, it supports free download of any required dll file. With the help of DLL Suite, you can remove BSOD and any other .exe virus infection problems(Trojan:Win32/Reveton.Q, for example).
Download DLL Suite, install and run > Click Dashboard menu and > Click Scan DLL Errors button > Click Fix DLL Errors button after the scan. And all the problems with sys file are fixed.

Download malwarebytes and scan with it, run MRT, and add Prevx to be sure it is gone. (If Rootkits run UnHackMe). Download - SAVE - go to where you put it - Right Click on it - RUN AS ADMIN

I keep getting the error that says this critical drive is missing: Windows\System32\Drivers\meydfv.sys. At this point, the system just stalls and asks me to get a windows installation disk to try and repair startup. When I do that, it says it's unable to repair...
- JERRY BROWN replied on February 15, 2013: » Can't find anything about that driver - meydfv.sys. Try a running SFC /scannow and then chkdsk /f /r.
Spaces after C and before / and after k and before / and after f and before / from the Command Prompt of a Vista disk.
If needed you could also try a System Restore but that might bring the malware back.System Restore can also be run from the Vista disk.
- TERRY BURT replied on February 16, 2013: » So I tried SFC and it said "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation."
Then, when I try chkdsk, it says: "Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Chkdsk may run if this volume is dismounted first. ALL OPENED HANDLES TO THIS VOLUME WOULD THEN BE INVALID. Would you like to force a dismount on this volume? (Y/N)" What should I do?
- WILLIAM RESLER replied on February 19, 2013: » I have a very similar problem and I believe my boot up has been stricken with a virus....PC won't boot up in Vista Ultimate as it states that I'm missing
\windows\system32\drivers\jvbmg.sys.....nothing on this driver on the internet so I believe this is a fake driver that vista is looking for and not allowing pc to boot. I can't get to command prompt or anything. I was clearing off virus infection when this occurred. I don't have a vista disk as I bought computer from someone....what can I do????? PLEASE HELP!!
