Hello folks,
I am new member saying hello and also requesting any available info on how to get rid of this new backdoor/virus.

I operate win2kpro... kerio firewall, kaspersky anti virus, adaware, spybot search and destroy... this new backdoor shows up in task manager as "scrsave.scr" it attacks and makes the kaspersky anti virus non working (don't know what else it does). I am able to delete it from the taskmanager but as soon as you boot up again it starts up.

Does anyone here have info on how to get rid of it totally.. I have also done the online housecall Trend Micro and it is also unable to delete it.

Thanks in anticipation.

If you think you are infected submit a hijackthis log here.

How to submit a hijackthis log

Download Hijackthis

Try running the following from safe-mode Sysclean you'll also need the virus template file from here lpt***.zip


DrWeb CureIT

If your good with the command line also try Sophos Command Line scanner

Also install and run A2 Free and Ewido

I'd also run Spybot and Adaware
