Anybody with any info on yet another variant please???

Did a stupid thing while downloading and installing and collected a little friend along the way by the name of "Win32.Inservice.M"
ZAAV picked it up but seemed to struggle to deal with it. Logs read unable to delete and attemting to repair.
Scanning with other software (SBlaster,AA,and MSAS) and again with ZA I quarantined (sp?) the zip it came in (which had a crack execute in as well that I had noticed before!!!) and came back with the all clear. I would have preferred to have seen some reference to a dead virus... if it is dead!!
Searching for the above shows a Chinese software house presumably selling the little blighters!! but not any other references.
Has Marianna any knowledge on this one?
Any input greatly appreciated.
Going to bed in a minute (nite nite time here in the UK) so apologies if I do not reply straight away to any messages.
Thanks in advance.

I'm confused as to whether or not you have gotten rid of it or not? It looks like ZA has it quarantined and your next scan came back clean? Is that correct? I'm not having any more luck than you searching for more information on this than you are. Try doing an online scan at one of these for a second opinion. Also, what is your operating system?

On the first one, make sure you checkmark the box that says "autoclean"

HI Al,

seems to be a pretty new one Sad

I only found it in China??

Please download a free evaluation copy of a trojan scanner and perform a trojan scan. Be sure to update first. This program should be used in conjunction with an AV as it is a dedicated trojan removal program.

Pls. let us know IF YH can find it - otherwise it would be best to run HJT and post a log at Castlecops.

Thank you both

Roddy and Marianna
Thank you both for the invaluable help.
I have Panda'd, Trojan hunted and Housecalled and apart from a data-miner (which I used as a sort of control item for them to find) everything came back clean. Still going to HJT to get a final OK and do various scans every day for the next few days but I am starting to get that warm feeling back of security!! Suffice to say lots of lessons learned about hasty actions bringing potential disaster. Familiarity breeding contempt. Look before you leap.......enough cheese I think!!!

I have been a visitor to these pages, taken the advice and converted others to it too but it is good to know when you need to post there is help at hand.

Thanks again. Hopefully we will only chat about the weather and other trivial things in the near future!!!

Time for bed again. This time without the thoughts of PCs viruses etc flying about in my head.
