I recently suffered a series of infections. Using a series anti-virus and malware cleaners, I got everythign back working again.
But one item stumped me -- and apparently, the anti-virus software too:
A file named idogrpgz.exe appeared in the C:\Windows\ folder, along with an associated pre-fetch and registry item, on the same day/time the other viruses were created. I tried Googling it. Not a trace.
Though none of the (8) malware/virus cleaners flagged it, it seemed so suspicious that I took a chance and deleted it manually, with no ill effect. Subsequently, Trend Micro tech support also advised me to "fix" the related registry item, using Hijack this.
But what in the world is "idogrpgz.exe"?? has anybody every heard of this thing? Or is it just a random name assigned to a bit of spyware by the trojan that planted it?
