Trojan KillReg. Advice and word of caution...

  [email protected] 10:48 15 Oct 2005

Almost 2 weeks ago my MS ASpyware picked up this trojan which I removed without reading the information provided about it!. An inexplicable loss of net connection had me tearing out hair and pressing an older PC into service, lucky for me.
I should have immediately searched the net for knowledge about the trojan but as I was having problems with my net wifi connection at the time I thought it was my router, I did not relate the two. WRONG...KillReg is designed to wreck/deny you your net connections.
The removal etc is well documented on the net, just type KillReg into Google or whatever.
Hope this helps someone.
(Thanks VoG and others for very good links in the past)

It is worth having this to hand in advance.

Hi VoG™. Thanks again for the link. I was already having problems with the wifi like I said, and when this thing popped up I just never related the two incidents, and they didnt happen close together for me to become suspicious. Lesson well learned though.
