Hi, AVira turned up a warning for this file in my system restore files, but they don't have any info on it on their website nor did I find ANYTHING when googling for it.

I had some trojan warnings a week back or so (iirc in my flashget folder) but it was a different one.

Basically I'm wondering what this is and should I be worried?

Virus or unwanted program 'TR/Agent.4595712 [trojan]'
detected in file 'C:\System Volume Information\_restore{75BCE7E1-E5D7-46AE-B249-FE166FEFF8A8}\RP28\A0008878.exe.
Action performed: Move file to quarantine

In addition I've been getting a seemingly abnormal amount of detections in adaware (tracking cookies almost all of them tho, but they take several scans to get rid of), but that might be a little outside the scope of this post.. (edit: though it's worth mentioning that the scans have been finishing seemingly prematurely a few times I think, at least for quick scans)

Running a complete virus scan (edit: which found nothing) now and will run Spybot (1 entry, mediaplex tracking cookie, fixed) + Superantispyware but just wanted to know if I should be worrying since before these occurences nothing had really come up.

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Here's the ones I had a couple of weeks ago

July 9th
Virus or unwanted program 'TR/Spy.Banker.vk.1 [trojan]'
detected in file 'C:\Documents and Settings\Jonathan Walsh\Lokala inställningar\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\virkioxm.default\Cache\98A26AA8d01.
Action performed: Move file to quarantine

July 4th

The file 'C:\Documents and Settings\Jonathan Walsh\Lokala inställningar\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\RCDGZGJ4\updates[1].cab'
contained a virus or unwanted program 'TR/Hijacker.Gen' [trojan]
Action(s) taken:
The file was moved to "48d20cba.qua"! <- as far as I remembered I choose move to quarantine but I guess I must have misclicked? Or is that what it means?

Virus or unwanted program 'TR/Hijacker.Gen [trojan]'
detected in file 'C:\Program\FlashGet\FGUpdate\updates.exe.
Action performed: Move file to quarantine)

These haven't re-appeared since then but I decided to include them just to be on the safe side.

Hello this appears to be a leftover in the system restore. We will get rid of that in abit.
First is this an XP PC ?
Now run a scan..
Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

to clear out what's in the System Restore....

Now you should Set a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since System Restore is a protected directory, your tools can not access it to delete these bad files which sometimes can reinfect your system. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Then go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "OK".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
