on the left side you'll find the removal tool.
You might have to dump your system restore points if trojan is also in "System Volume" file.
Hope this gets it. Good Luck !!
Agent W not found
After running the gamut of scanners, a squared found Agent W and disinfected it - 4 occurances. I also just ran the recommended one here, and nothing. It inidcated the file was in an email "bankinfo.pdf.exe" each time...
Also, during the scan Passview.E was found in Protected storage: "pspv.zip(pspv.exe)"...I undertand this is for passwords..I removed it... Of note, I just downloaded a trial version of Photoshop from Adobe...what are the chances of "pspv" slipping in from there? Thanks.
Not Really Sure. A couple of Loose Conections via Google...
but nothing definative. Also found some mention of false positives by some AV re your file. Found Home Page of pspv.exe and have linked below. Was pspv found by you on board AV? Does it have a "right click:scan w/AV" option? If so, you could scan the photoshop file singlely and see if it's there. You at least got rid of some other nasties. Sometimes running scan in safe mode will allow access to inaccessable folder.
Pspv.exe home page:http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/pspv.html
There also seemed to be another file (from Google) with a loose connection with name varied to: Tcpsvrs also password related (near bottom of page):
Don't know if this helps but you could use your find files & folders to see if you've got.
Anyone else have physical contact with your machine?
Sorry can't be of more help! G'Luck!
Read about and ran the scanners again on the Adobe download..nothing. I deleted the zip file of "pspv"..no other users and only broadband connection, running ZASS and other scanners...strange. Thanks.
A few months ago, Corphyeus, one of
the regulars posted a news article from, PC Mag (I think) about a tool (pspv.exe) to check to see if your passwords stored in a certain area of the computer were safe or not from a certain keylogger. Also in the same article was a link to another tool (SSAloggerclean) from CounterSpy that would detect and remove the keylogger. The first tool, the pspv.exe IS a hacktool so SOME scanners picked it up as a hacktool (Which it is so they were doing their job). I have Norton myself and I chose to ''exclude'' if from scans because I knew what it was. McAfee also picks up that tool. Are you sure that you didn't download that tool back then and maybe forget it was on your computer? IF you did, that would explain where it came from and maybe ease your mind some.
No, I am sure I did not download it, it was in a folder ''Protected Storage''. I would have no reason for the file and then it is not even the area where I save my downloads. I also checked some backups, it was not on the backups, this was new. So, it can be a legit program to check on passwords and/or malware?Thanks.
Yes, It CAN be a legit program
but if you didn't knowingly download it, than it probably is not. I just thought that MAYBE you had downloaded it back when myself and some of the others did. If you'd like, CounterSpy came out with a small scanner that looks for the keylogger that infects that area. It's free and it wouldn't hurt to download and try it.
Not looking to ''beat this to death'' but..
it sure does sound familiar. I do have it. And it's also in a folder called ''Protected Storage''. And a few of my scans pick up pspv.zip and pspv.exe every time I run them. (Those being the programs that won't give me the option to ignore it, as I do want to keep it.)
Does this ring a bell at all:http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6132-0.html?forumID=32&threadID=119247&messageID=1353529
As usual, all of what Roddy said applies. If you are sure you never intentionally downloaded it, I would agree with Roddy that it is not legit. How else would it have gotten there? (A rhetorical question)
So now.. I AM beating it to death.. :D!
Just wanted to jiggle your mind - one last time!
Consider it ''jiggled and over''!!
