Virus.Win32.Virut.ce or any other variant?

|

Hello,
I am looking for Virus.Win32.Virut.ce with no luck at all so far. Does anyone have a copy of Virus.Win32.Virut.ce or any other variant of it that they're willing to share with me? I've read about this threat on the internet, and everyone claims it is impossible to get rid of without doing a complete reformat. I would like to try it for myself, except I can't find the virus anywhere. If I am successful at completely removing it without reformatting, then I will make a tutorial on how I did it.
Thanks in advance.

There are plenty of variants

Warning about virut.

I had this virus in my days, today I wanted to revisit Virut so I downloaded 3 samples on my virtual machine. Note that I have a Mac but everyone else in the house is on a PC. Well those 3 hit hard on the virtual machine and caused it to BSOD with a HARD ERROR. It blocked out many things, like the task manager. Well I was still on the network with the VirtualMachine and guess what. I hear someone say Virut.a and then I jump to it. Virut made a move through the network, to a PC with Windows 7 that it made some files in the the Public folder only. Be very careful to make sure other computers are not infected with this. The virus went away when I ran to the router and yanked the cord from it.

How to clean Virut.

I cleaned my virtual machine by booting into safe mode, note that the 3 Virut files I downloaded one caused the computer in normal mode to restart so I couldn't do anything there. Then going to Msconfig and unchecking the files to come up on start up. By looking at that list I could go to those folders and remove the files. For the infected files I used Microsoft Removal Tool located in the System32 folder to find out all the files infected by it. I then could use some kind of bootcd so I could delete the infected windows files and replaced them with working files I had from my BartPE.iso I had long ago. This is how I removed but I would like to find out if lelenina was able to remove it.
