Has anyone come accross this virus?

I use Bullguard Internet Security and it spotted this in System32 yesterday.

I have made several attempts to delete the perfhmon.exe file in safe mode, but it always vanishes in safe mode (hidden folders are visible).

I cant delete the file in normal mode :thumbsup:

Anyone know how to see this in safe mode so that I can delete it? :flowers:

Sophos - W32/Codbot-W

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

or

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

If your using Win2K/XP run adaware/spybot from "safe mode with command prompt"

At the C:\ prompt type the following:-

cd\
C:\progra~1\spybot~1\spybotsd.exe /autocheck /autofix
cd\
C:\progra~1\lavasoft\ad-awa~1\ad-aware.exe
