Hello everyone,

Have had a BAD problm with what seems to be several unknown trojans downloading into my computer through DIFx drivers installer.

The windows xp DIFx might have been taken over- it shows up with it's own program folder a short while after reformatting, then whatever it's downloaded trys to turn any program with any internet link into a server. And it seems pretty successful. AAAARRRGGHHH!!!!

Anyway... IF there is a security update for it, has anyone tryed it and does it actually work? I do not frequent crack sites, but on a search I found a couple sites talking about DIFx expoits. So I know I'm not the only one... So far denying it any internet connections is working, but who knows. It completely took over AVAST... I can't delete it- it just reappears.

Hi i think you should make another post in the Am I Infected forum. Let's see if the malware is gonefirst ,then you can fix that MS DIFx. Also mention your Operating System and security tools installed.
