|Contracting this little nasty from a web search result, it infiltrated my system via my web brower's (MSIE v7) vulnerabilities and executed. I immediately tried taskmgr.exe and regedit.exe after seeing the red/white nastygram window telling me I have a Trojan. Both .exe's popped the little window up on my screen instead of doing their thing.|
So I rebooted in Safe Mode, found nothing embedded in services.exe, startup or msconfig, so I ran AutoRuns.exe (free from M$). I found some garbage, but files were not found on the system, so no help there.
I ran a free version of Avast! and my computer rebooted and scanned every file, eventually stating nothing had been found. So I let it continue to boot.
This time in Normal boot mode, I could run taskmgr.exe and regedit, so to be safe, I went to System Restore and went back a day to yesterday's checkpoint.
I have since examined taskmgr, services, startup and autoruns and found no trace of the little booger.
Oh, almost forgot, without running MSIE again, I went into Control Panels to check my Internet Options to look in Programs >> Manage Add-Ons. I only leave those from M$, Adobe, Sun and the ones I know and depend upon to be Enabled. Disable everything else (you can reenable later if needed).
I think I'm clean, but time will tell.
A Zero Cost Solution!!
