Can you download this program and its updates to another computer and run it on the infected one?
Hi and welcome to BleepingComputer
Hi all, I am new here so I hope I don't upset anyone right off !
I am having a problem with this Downloader.Generic8.PEI
. My problem is that it will not let me get anyplace but the Welcome Screen and wants me to log in as Admin. or " the other user " . It has changed All passwords so logging in is out, it will not except blank or what it really was. No matter what I do it always takes me right back to the Welcome Screen. I can not use a program from Windows because I can not get in. I have tried "Ophcrack" , burned the OSI to CD but it wont even let me load that. I am not the smartest on viruses but I have always been able to at least get in to find it. OH and, the reason I know it's the Downloader.Generic8.PEI
is, the first time I started up the system it DID let me into Safe Mode so I started running AVG. AVG was running fine then it froze then popped up a warring that it was going to shut down ( sorry I don't remember just why it said it was going to, it was fast ). But, I did get to see about 5 files AVG had moved to the Vault.
OH YEAH on more kink for you. I do not have a setup CD. This is a friends system and it was built for him a couple years ago and he was not given a disk or even a product key so, I kinda really need to crack this OS and clean it out.
OH I just found out it was loaded with an OEM copy of XP. I'm not sure what the Lic. is Corp. or what but that's what I do know.
These are those files AVG moved :
USERINIT.EXE ( TROJAN )
MOUSEHOOK.DLL ( TROJAN )
DOWNLOADER GENERIC 8.PEI
FRMWRK32 ( TROJAN )
So, I appreciate any help or info you could offer !Thank you all very much
