ThreatExpert's awareness of u.exe
Anytime you come across a suspicious file for which you cannot find any information about, the file has a legitimate name but is not located where it is supposed to be, or you want a second opinion, submit it to Jotti's virusscan
. In the "File to upload & scan
" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.
If the results indicate malware, then download the portable version of FileASSASSIN
and save FA_Portable.zip to your desktop.
-- If the file(s) returns, then you probably have other malware on your system which is protecting or regenerating it.
- Create a new folder on your C:\ drive named FileAssassin and extract (unzip) the file to that folder. (click here if you're not sure how to do this. Vista users refer to this link.)
- Note: If you downloaded the installable version instead, just double-click on fa-setup.exe to install and then launch FileASSASSIN from the program folder.
- Open the folder and double-click on FileASSASSIN.exe to launch the tool.
- Select the file to delete by dragging it onto the text area or find it using the (...) browse button.
- If you browsed to the file, click on it to highlight, then select Open.
- Leave the default "Attempt FileASSASSIN's method of file processing".
- Put a check mark next to Delete File and click Execute to begin the removal process.
- If removal did not require a reboot, you will receive a message indicating the file was deleted successfully.
- Click Ok and exit FileASSASSIN.
- If the file did not remove, start the program again, select the file the same way as before and this time check "Use delete on reboot function from windows."
Caution: Be careful what you delete. FileAssassin is a powerful program, designed to move highly persistent files. Using it incorrectly could lead to serious problems with your operating system.
