The CA Yaoo Anti Spy 2.1.1 program on my Yahoo home page has found the Trojan Bancos IYG on C:\windows\system 32\acer.exe. I have ran Trend Micro, A Squared Anti Malware and AVG Virus scan and none of them pick it up. I also have Spyware Blaster installed. Is it safe to delete that Acer file? What else can I try to get rid of it. Any help appreciated. Running Vista on Acer laptop 2 Gig mem and 160 Gig hard drive
Go into your System32 folder and find it. Hover the mouse over it. If it's created date is out of sync with the date of the others it's a baddie. Have a look at PrevX.com if you aren't certain. It's more than likely a genuine process for your Acer but PrevX illustrates what it might be...not good.
I would tend to agree that it is 'CA Yahoo Anti Spy that is wrong', if you are still concerned the best way to go would be to post a HiJackThis Log somewhere like below for more expert help. click here
