Win32.Vitro is quite dangerous trojan virus. Just like trojan Vundo and Zlob, Win32.Vitro can be obtained by visiting various noxious websites. Mainly, Win32.Vitro is promoted on websites that offer free online movies. In order to watch those movies visitor has to download certain video codec. However, it’s not a real video codec, but trojan Win32.Vitro. Once active, Win32.Vitro performs various misleading actions. It downloads and installs additional malware and spyware without user’s permission. What is more, it advertises rogue anti-spyware applications such as Antivirus 360 and System Protector. Win32.Vitro must be removed at earliest stage, because removal delay will cause even more damage to the system.

    Win32:Vitro is the worst thing that can happen to any Windows OS; Ive had it several times & Avast Anti-Virus couldnt remove it.
    The entire System Memory is infected by this “Nasty” up to and including all the Windows Files & Folders….

    THE ONLY WAY I WAS ABLE TO GET RID OF IT WAS TO : Go to “source Forge.net & download Dariks Boot and Nuke i586 *.Iso , Burn it to a non- Re-Writable CD put CD in your DVD / CD Burner & Restart your Computer…
    It will take about 1 minute lo load the “Linux Kernel” , when the Blue Screen ASKS For a Command “Enter Auto Nuke” !!
    Please make sure that only the INFECTED HARD DISKS ARE ATTACHED TO YOUR SYSTEM,

    “DBAN WILL WIPE EVERYTHING THAT IS ATTACHED TO THE SYSTEM USING (PETER GUTTMAN METHOD0 35 PASSES PER SECTOR Sequentially…. The task will Complete in sl hours depending on how large the Hard Disk in Gbs
    Hope This Helps 😀

  • INeedHelpPlease

    Is there any way to remove Win32: Vitro and/or Win32: Scribble without deleting the infected system files and personal files? Thank You

    Actually it was simple getting rid of the virus. Any avast will work. The only problem is that you may need to re-install software you have running on your pc. Re-installing software doesnt mean that you are going to loose your data… Anyway, seeing that everyone has a legit copy of their software on disks, this is how i did it.
    Using avast 5 i started a boot time scan.
    With the first virus coming I selected “DELETE ALL”
    Then another pause came up making me aware that files in the Windows folder is infected, again i selected “DELETE ALL” knowing that my OS is trashed after this scan.
    After scan was completed my OS didnt start obviously.
    Insterted my W7 disk and started a new installation without formatting my drive so that all my “old data” would remain in my windows.old folder and all the remaining documents/saved games/music/videos on my c: will remain where they are.
    Windows installation is a success and installation of my software too success too. All my data is intact and im operational again. Its been 2 months now without this virus coming up. Im now running the latest free version of avast and do scheduled scans every second day.
    Hope this helps
