Recently I caught a Bitcoin mining virus on my computer, I know this because my GPU load is very high on idle (Around 60%), this goes away when I disconnect from the internet. I found a solution here - http://www.reddit.com/r/techsupport/comments/1d7nn5/bit...

The problem with this is that I can't get into safe mode, which is the first step...

I press F8 just before loading windows, I select safe mode, It does all the loading, when it gets to the welcome screen my PC just automatically reboots and loads up standard windows. (I'm using windows 7 pro N)

I did try and use MSconfig to get into safe mode but that created an infinite loop of the computer restarting, it was a pain to get out of...

If I can get into safe mode I can follow the steps on how to get rid of the Bitcoin Miner.

Maybe I should just buy Microsoft Office instead of pirating it, damn karma.

Well I've sort of fixed my problem anyway, I couldn't figure out how to get into safe mode so I tried installing the new AMD Beta drivers instead of the full released ones I already have, when installing a process called Win32 crashed, My GPU load also went back to normal. I thought Win32 was something important associated with windows but then I realised who ever created the Bitcoin mining virus probably wanted me to think this, unfortunately Win32 comes back every time I boot up my computer, so now every time I boot my computer I turn off Win32 and everything goes back to normal.

I'm going to leave this thread unsolved because safe mode still doesn't work and if someone knows how to permanently get rid of Win32 I'll love to know.

i can help you get rid of it though. but i cannot do it right now.. in about 5-6 hours from now on probably or sooner. You got another computer? You have a blank CD? If you do, please let me connect to it later when i come back home to that pc and i burn a software to access your infected computer so i remove the virus completely.

what you need:
-Another pc to burn CD
-Blank Cd
-Internet Cable (RJ45)
-Teamviewer on the computer where i can burn a CD. Then we can do it later.
So get these ready.

Ever heard of Buma Stemra maybe?
Police Virus?
Polizei ?
KLPD?

All these virus i solved included MBR and ING virus. Takes about 30min to look through all spot that contains virus most of the times. The scan it self i start it when nearly done after restart and close Teamviewer and you have to wait until it;s done. Then post the result here.
