"Trojan found" keeps poping up...
« on: December 28, 2005, 06:03:33 AM »
I keep getting this window "A Trojan Horse was found" popping up asking me to abort connection.  I press abort and it pops up a minute later.  What can I do?

Double click on the blue "a" ball near the clock.Select More Details, Web Shield->Customize->Advanced tab->Silent mode.
This will automatically abort the connection.

Maybe browse to a site which isn't trying to infect your computer with malware?

Thanks for the reply.

The silent mode worked but I'm still gettin the scanner message on the bottom right.  Yeah I was on a sight I shouldn't have been on the other day.  But Im not browsing anything and it keeps popping up.  I'm also gettin this message that "your computer is infected with spyware".  I ran Spyblaster, but I still get the message. How do I get rid of this?

Hi jaybird74,

To be sure you will not click the wrong links to be further infested
download the DrWeb hyperlink pre-scanning plug-in for IE, FF or Opera (only a very small install, and all your hyperlinks can be pre-scanned onto the anti-viral update servers of DrWeb to see if the link is clean, get the all green and an OK there, you can click that link, without having to be afraid to get infested. I use it for more than one year now in FF and now in the Flock browser, and I would not know how to live without it, get it here: http://download.drweb.com/drweb+antivirus+free+services/

I downloaded the Dr. Web and it found 2 trojans. But I'm still getting the Avast scanner message. Also my internet explorer browser keeps wanting to change my homepage to about.blank.

Yeah the second link with the movie you posted was kinda similar to what happenend at first.  The command prompt came up, it kept changing my IE, my desktop wallpaper is gone, trojans were found from the scanner(which wont stop), and said my computer is infected with spyware. But I just ran a scan with that Dr. Web and it picked up allota bad stuff. I'm not getting the "your computer is infected with spyware" anymore tho...

Do I understand correctly that a Webshield message can also mean a Trojan downloader is trying to download malware from a remote site?

If it's using the standard HTTP protocol (which is quite likely), then yes, it is possible.

Better will be having a firewall and see which is starting to download...
Did the user run a boot time avast scanning with avast to know if everything is cleaned after Dr.Web scanning?

Hi, Happy New Year,

I have the home edition of Avast and I am constantly getting warning messages regarding
Win32:Trojano-3267 [Trj]. No matter whether I select "Move to Chest" or "Delete", the Trojan
regenerates itself within seconds.

The file name is C:\Documents and Settings\Steve\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.
IE5\2PJGH8NE\xp_0031[1].exe

I also constantly get the message "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by
another process".

Please can someone help and tell me how to remove this virus from my PC permanently?
