What is the definition of this virus & how do I remove it? My Onecare has the option to remove it but I want to know what it is!

Its probably a variation of Trojan-Downloader.Win32.ConHook.b. Let Onecare remove it if it can. Post back if you encounter any problems with removal.

Well then excuse me for my manners. Welcome to BC, a site where you will get lots of replies. :thumbsup:

As I said if you continue to have problems, I will give you further instructions as conhook can be difficult to remove.

Thanks again, I think they are gone? I went ahead & ran the VundoFix after the OneCare said it removed the Trojan Conhook & the Trojan Vitumondo, & VundoFix said it found 6 more infected files that I clicked remove! So I will wait to see if OneCare detects them again or if I get any more popups while on the net!

Will it interfere with Onecare if I download hijack this & install so I may post my log for you to overlook to see if it is clean?, I noticed that's what everyone in this forum is doing? How do you feel about OneCare?, we've used it for about a year on all of our business PC's that we depend on as much as water!!!! (We rarely are notified of virus threats to remove or quarintine?, but we are always on the net!

Thank You in Advance!

While Conhook is similar to Vundo, it is actually a different infection. However, some of the malware files it uses can overlap and be detected/removed by vundofix.

I have never used OneCare but opinions on its effectiveness will vary. In any regards, there is nothing wrong with using it to supplement your existing anti-virus and anti-malware programs.

Hijackthis will not interfere with Onecare. If you continue to have problems or need to ensure your system is clean, please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. If you can't perform a step, then skip and continue with the next. In step #9 there are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log. (This is a self-extracting version which will automatically install HJT in the proper location.)

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, we would appreciate if you post a link to your log back here so we know that your getting help from the HJT Team.
