susicious startup

  chugby 10:45 25 Nov 2006

Noticed startup programs appeared in MSconfig named and TRUSTROAM.EXE-1C31C052.PF which have located in the windows prefetch file.

Nothing comes up on usual AV/Spyware scans.
Initially tried deleting from MSConfig startup programs but came back, then tried using CleanUp! 4.5.2 but still came back. Managed to manually delete from the Windows prefetch folder, although noticed they are still shown in the MSconfig but they are disabled.

Any advise appreciated.

Spec: AMD, XPSp2, Kaspersky AV/FW, Ewido

Have a look for something that appears like C:\WINDOWS\APPLIC~1\LOVEST~1\DupeMfcd.exe
and post the full path please.

thanks for reply Fruit Bat /\0/\

have checked MSconfig and the startup item (Disabled)
DupeMfcd is shown under the command line as
Tried general search and also explored manually but cant trace except on MSconfig.

By coincidence as writing this was also running A-squared free antispyware and came up with within my WinRAR zip program,

Yes I think it probably is.

If you had the line suspected, then you have a trojan

have deleted the winrar program and doing another scan.

the Trust Roam startup shows as:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Face Nurb Download Phone\Trust Roam.Exe.

Cant find alot of info on this, wonder if this is a dialup trojan although i'm on broadband. How do i get into the application data? Assume MSconfig disabling hopefully stops them in the meantime.
