Learned something today...

 

Been running AVG Pro, Webroot SpySweeper, Micro$oft Anti-Spyware, Lavasoft and Search and Destroy since my Norton AV subscription ran out in the middle of summer, went up to Kaspersky and ran an online scan like they advised in PC World this month and found a damned trojan and two virus programs that were hiding in the system..... :'(

The machine was slow so I tried their advice after running all the other installed sweepers.... :/

Funny you mentioning that Spinner, am working on a friends computer, It was a mess, trojans and viruses everywhere. :wacko: . he's using win.98se. as a OS. Got it all cleaned up, except for a problem with IE 6 which kept on reverting to About blank as default homepage.......... Did Virus scans, the whole 9 yards, nothing, even did boot scans for viruses and came up with nothing. Went into regedit and win.ini and there it was........... crypter.c, a variant of Trojan. Gema.B. Nasty little critter. Am thinking of just reformatting and starting fresh as he said he had nothing on puter that he couldn't replace easily.

 

Much like you, this trojan wasn't showing up as normal trojans and viruses do on scans. :blink::blink::'( :'( :angry:
