Trojan.Win32.Regrun Quarantined, But Displays Again

by amelia jade / June 4, 2009 4:08 PM PDT

I use a-squared as one of my anti-malware programs. In the last 3 days, it has found a Trojan called Trojan.Win32.Regrun!IK and has labeled it as High Risk. I quarantine the Trojan, but when a-squared runs again, it detects the Trojan again.

Is my PC just getting reinfected with this Trojan? If so, how can I find out how I'm getting infected and what I can do? BTW, Norton 360 Version 2 and SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition do not find this Trojan at all.

I'm running Windows XP SP 2. Thanks.

Please post the location of the trojan

Hi,

Please post the path/location of the file that A-squared is detecting the Trojan.Win32.Regrun!IK.

Also, try to scan using Kaspersky Online Scanner: http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner to see if there's really a trojan in your system.
Another trojan scanner is TrojanHunter which is 30 days fully functional anti-trojan:

I will post the location of the Trojan later this week
by amelia jade / June 7, 2009 2:39 PM PDT

a-squared did not pick up the Trojan today, possibly because I haven't used the PC much. I'm pretty sure there were at least 2 locations where a-squared found the Trojan, although I cannot recall what those locations were.

I'll run a-squared again over the next few days and post any new information.

Thank you also for the 2 anti-Trojan programs. I'll try them out.

Regards,
Amelia
