hs.exe / Sivka burka Virus?

  Jake_027 19:51 18 Dec 2005

A few days ago i was having a problem with a file under C:\Documents and Settings\Jake\Local Settings\Temp\400.... something like that, i keep deleting the file as soon as i log on. It is a fiel called hs.exe and from what i can find doing a google search it is a trogan virus [see:click here]. My antivirus will not pick it up and neither will the a2 scanner i was recommended. I have deleted the file every time i log on and all the prefetch values, but it still keeps coming back. I don't know if this has anything to do with it but i can no longer access C:\Documents and Settings\Jake\Local Settings\History. If I try to it comes up with "windows explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close" as soon as i double click to go into history, but i can access all other areas of my pc. Any solutions?

Scan with Ewido click here and let us know if it finds anything.

Still no luck I'm afraid

That was remarkably quick for an Ewido scan!

There's a program called HSremove.exe ..which apparently removes this nasty little guy. Do a search.. if you don't find it, contact me (by clicking the envelope icon) and I'll send you a copy. It's an XP specific thing. Good luck.
