Hello all i am alex , i am working as a system administrator at a small business company. Recentely i had to encounter on a virus activity over the network on which i noticed that the explore.exe restarts frequently. This happens only in normal mode, in safe mode every thing seems perfect. So i had to look for the log files of the Anti virus installed for any kind of alerts , and for my luck i found this trojan dropper alert. Then i had to search for any removal tools over the internet on that name and also over the issue. Very few were the responses posted on the internet.
The Os was windows 2003 and hence there were very vew antivirus supporting so i had to do a deep online scanning i did Trend micro house call. kaspersky online scan and bitdefender. All the found some threts and i had to mannually delete the threats by entering from safe mode, but Trend Micro HouseCall was the best solution as a online scanner. Then i had to do a scan using CCleaner too. But all did cleard some tracking files and some threats still the explorer kept on restarting.
So i searched for more online scanner an found this PREVXCSI which is a dedicated software for Detecting Malware. It did found the threts but for cleaning i need to get a license, So i swiched back to safe mode and deleted the files, which was some dll's and some exe files in the windows folder. I crossed my fingers and restarted my computer to normal mode. Wolla !! Everything seemed perfect. :thumbsup:

Conclution : do not ever try to download cracks or keygens. Nor do the torrents which contains atleast one comment " warning "
