Re: Help to identify what my PC is infected with

From: "SPG" <steve.goodsell@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

| Hi,
| Somehow a Trojan has got onto my PC.
| It was downloading loads of viruses (Dialer mainly).
| I run Norton Internet Security, but that did not catch the installation of
| the trojan. I does however catch the viruses as they are downloaded by the
| trojan.
| I have ran AVG, which found infected in a file called
| DrInstall.exe and cleaned that, as well as some dodgy registry entries.
| But, I am still seeing some wierd things like thousands of 0byte files being
| written to windows\temp. These are normally names SOSxxxx.TMP (replace xxxx
| with a random number) or TMPxxxx.TMP
| Now, I ran Trojan hunter tongiht also, that didn't find anything, bu tthere
| is clearly something going on to keep creating these files.
| Can anyone point me to what might be the cause of this and how I can get
| rid?
| Steve

Dialers are Trojans, not viruses.

Start with the McAfee module in the below Multi AV Scanning Tool...

Download MULTI_AV.EXE from the URL --

To use this utility, perform the following...
Execute; Multi_AV.exe { Note: You must use the default folder C:\AV-CLS }
Choose; Unzip
Choose; Close

Execute; C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT
{ or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS }

NOTE: You may have to disable your software FireWall or allow WGET.EXE to go through your
FireWall to allow it to download the needed AV vendor related files.

C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT -- { or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS}
This will bring up the initial menu of choices and should be executed in Normal Mode.
This way all the components can be downloaded from each AV vendor's web site.
The choices are; Sophos, Trend, McAfee, Kaspersky, Exit this menu and Reboot the PC.

You can choose to go to each menu item and just download the needed files or you can
download the files and perform a scan in Normal Mode. Once you have downloaded the files
needed for each scanner you want to use, you should reboot the PC into Safe Mode [F8 key
during boot] and re-run the menu again and choose which scanner you want to run in Safe
Mode. It is suggested to run the scanners in both Safe Mode and Normal Mode.

When the menu is displayed hitting 'H' or 'h' will bring up a more comprehensive PDF help
