Win32:Trojan in autochk.exe
« on: November 27, 2009, 08:50:14 PM »
Hey guys normally I'm able to get rid of a problem with my computer but this one is stumping me!!! Ok first of all this is on my friends computer, he's going through a divorce and his wife took the computer to someone in the IT field and had them take all of her things off the computer. He gets it back and is unable to use the internet at his house, talked to ISP no problems from their side of things they can talk to modem. So I tell him I will look at it. I put a clean install of Win7 on for him. (Delete partition, new partion, then format and install) So I put on Avast 4.8 Pro for him, first thing it comes up with is that c:\windows\system32\autochk.exe is a Trojan. Along with about 4 other similar files. I check my computer for same thing, since I used same install disk and nothing is found it's clean so I assume there is something hidden on the computer somewhere that the X's IT friend put on. So I have since tired Vista & Win7 all find same files infected. I pulled out XP and used it for it's full format of the HD abilities. Still no good. I tried scanning it with TrendMicro's Housecall, Ad-Aware, Spybot and they didn't find anything. I've tried using DOS to create a new MBR, but I can't get to the HD.

So I've attached this from the RootkitBuster. Any ides? Or do you need anything else?

I don't think the ex's IT would put a rootkit your friend's PC. This is a false positive.

Upload to VirusTotal and post results.

Well she have been making their divorce very hard, just being an evil witch, but change that w to a B. Since I put the 32 bit version of Win7 on this time. The other file isn't on here, but I'll put Avast back on and see what it finds this time.

***UPDATE***Virus scan came back negative. I will finish installing everything and see what I get again.****

Remember this is a fresh install went straight to VT and uploaded. Nothing else was done, HD had partition deleted then formated. Then straight to the upload.
