Trojan.Downloader.CR64Loader Trojan Downloader

Microsoft AntiSpyware picked this up on its scheduled scan this morning.

Apparently authored by click here , which is popular with my kids for its games. Never had any problems with that site before, to best of my knowledge.

Anybody know more about this particular Trojan, or had problems themselves with miniclip? Google's not particularly helpful on it. All I've got is click here

I'm debating whether to block miniclip, but that will cause serious trouble in the household!

Comments please.

Downloader trojans are commonplace have a look click here for info.

Most will anchor themselves in the restore file, which is why av progs fail to clear them. If that happens then simply disable system restore and run the av again, pref in safe mode. Once av has done it's job then re-enable system restore.

A prog like Regclean will sort out any entries to the trojan in the registry too.

a2 click here excellent for detecting and removing trojans. Make sure you donload the free version.

Much appreciated. Will use Regclean in future too.

I've got AVG, a2, AAW & Spybot here already, in addition to the MS proggy.

Interestingly a2, although fully updated, hadn't picked it up.

I've seen this in the past; one prog finds something another has missed.

Thanks for post. All seems well now; I was leaving thread open in case anyone else had come across the problem.

Interestingly another computer here, which has the same AV/spyware detection setup and is also used by the kids on the same sites didn't get the Trojan. (I'll probably regret posting that!)

Anyway, I'll tick as resolved; hopefully that's the end of it.
