Anyone had this one? Nothing in PCA 'search'.
Just done a Spysweeper scan and it found this trojan. Apparently this is a remote access trojan.
Google search reveals various forums on it including Kapersky which didn't find it.

Once deleted, they say, it re-appears on reboot, which I haven't yet done. I can't find any other registry entries for it.
In retrospect I did Adaware and Spybot yesterday and one of them, can't remember which, revealed a Windows Firewall disabler. Wondered if this could have been connected.

Interesting, muddypaws, to see you mention IE firewall disabler. My Spybot also found an IE firewall problem but called the thing firewall bypass. Is that the same thing? There were two of them. I`ve installed SpywareBlaster in the hope that it will prevent registry changes.

In my case the Trojan was Win32:Trojan-gen.(VC) nabbed by Avast!

provider2 Yes that was it--firewall bypass.
I have rebooted since then and just going to do another SS scan.

SS has found it again so will have to search for the traces somewhere when SS has finished.

Hi all not posted here before!

muddypaws, Try Superantispyware {FREE} and if it does not pick the Trojan up? your AV maybe detecting the Trojan in your system restore?

p;3 Just doing a windows search for any signs then will do A-Squared. Cheers.
Spyware terminator found nothing.

I have to say I`m having problems either with the terminology or maybe lack of knowledge ( both probably).
The Spybot printout says: Microsoft.Windows.IEFirewallBypass: Settings (registry value, fixed)
Trouble is I didn`t know IE had a firewall and if it doesn`t have a firewall what is Spybot talking about? Sorry to be so thick.

provider 2.
Join the club! Perhaps someone else can answer that?
I am running A-Squared at present and at the rate it is going it will finish about midday to-morrow! So might have to start again in the morning.
