Thumbs up Re: Need help removing virus (Downloader.Generic8.APEH)

Before attempting the more elaborate methods of cleaning I decided to give Malwarebytes a try since I kept seeing this program mentioned in various forums (Free version) , Well it found 28 problems, 2 of those were memory resident viruses including msb.exe / 1508.exe and it was able to clean everything, I rebooted the pc and its now clean and running much much faster.

I guess Spybot isn't as good as I thought! then again this virus seemed capable of hiding itself from certain malware programs (including norton).
