AFP Virus Removal

For anyone dealing with an AFP virus which is going around – try this:
Download and burn this to a CD and/or onto a USB:
If using a usb, ensure that the legacy USB mode is turned on in the BIOS to allow the system to read a USB –NOTE : USB 3 ports may not work with this.
Boot the machine into safe mode and then put the usb / cd in the drive and run the program
See if this fixes the issue
Apparently this is a pretty easy virus to get rid of, but one that’s causing headaches for a lot of AV companies.
Make sure you FORMAT ANY USB DRIVES after using in an infected machine
