Hi, My name is Kelley and this is my first post. I ran A-Squared last night and it found a trojan downloader in a song file from Limewire. When I first downloaded the song I did click on it and try and play it which I couldnt. I quarantined it with A-Squared, Is that all I need to do or would you recommend taking further action? I am running Vista Home Premium on a HP AMD QUAD Core with 3072 ram and 640 GB hard Drive. I did experience a couple problems the other day before I ran the scan. I went to open ITunes and couldnt open it. My CPU was running full bore with no open programs. I shut down for a couple minutes and upon restart was able to open the program only to find all my downloaded music ( all from limewire) had dissapeared from my ITunes library. I was able to find it in my Documents and put it back. Every thing seems to be working well now but Im not convinced Im out of the woods as It was also running well before I discovered and quarantined the trojan downloader. What do you think? Thank you for taking the time to help me as I really appreciate it. Kelley K.

Let's see what another scan shows. Run as Administrator

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.
  • 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 may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Reagardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.
