Hello, Apol here......

I would like to inquire about getting some information and helpful tip's into removing this Trojan horse, I shall describe below some details into the problem.

First off, I am running on Windows Visata 32bit, 2Gb of RAM, I have installed Malwarebytes, AVG free edition, SUPERAntispyware free edition and updated them to current and run numerous full scans in a attempt to remove this trojan. It detects it with avg, but not MBAM, or Superantispyware, the location according to the AVG resident shield's logs, is in "C:Windows/Temp/ppex.tmp/svchost.exe" with the ppex.tmp part of the location being changed to a random set of four letters. I believe that I was infeced with this trojan via a Torrent I downloaded from Vuze, I have deleted the suspected file and run numerous scans afterwards. The only activity that i have noticed with this Trojan horse is the fact that it redirects my browser to random Webpages displaying Ad's and such.

The process name that the resident shield of AVG reports is "C:/Windows/System32/svchost.exe". If you need any more details, scan's and log's, feel free to leave a link to the software needed to do so.

Sincerely Apol :thumbsup:

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.
