Yesterday I feared I may have gotten a computer virus on my laptop. So I did a few scans. The first few took care of most of the viruses but there's one that didn't go away. So I went to find the file. It was somewhat hidden cause it was checked as a protected OP system file. Anyways the folder is called syslog and it's in my System32 file. In the folder a file called system manager.exe appears. I keep getting it as a Trojan. And so I tried to delete it but it keeps coming back. Right after deleting it it comes back. Anyone have an idea on what to do?
Also I'm think I may have a file called _crack_totem.reg in my registry but I'm not sure if it was already deleted or not. Or if when it got on if the file named changed or not. Anyone have any idea how to find it?

Here's a picture of the system manager file.

Hmm okay thank you. I'll try all this as soon as I get the time to be able to do a scan that could take a while.

Went a head and did the Virus Total scan seeing as it wouldn't take too long. Am I suppose to give you the link to results?

This has remnants of the TDSS Rootkit. Once you have run the Superantispyware scan, please run an online virus scan with Dr. Web.

Please download Dr.Web CureIt, the free version & save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on launch.exe to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
  • Read the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.
  • The Express scan will automatically begin.
  • (This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).
  • If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.
  • If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All.
  • When complete, click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
  • (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • Now put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.
  • In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and UNcheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • When the scan is complete, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click "Yes to all" if asked to cure or move the file(s) and select "Move incurable".
  • In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

Ok thank you very much. It may be a day or two before I can get back to you with this. Though I'd rather do it right now with this file on my computer. Thank you for your help.

Here's the log for the SAS. Doing the Dr. Web one right now. It looks like it'll take a long time cause I started it at like 11am and it's barley half way through. Also I did say yes to all and it deleted the System Manager.exe file. I don't know if you expected it to be an incurable item or not.

Okay so I did finish that Dr.Web cure scanning but right after I pressed "Save Report List" I got a Blue Screen of Death. So I don't really want to go through another scanning unless I really have to, but I feel like the same thing will happen.

I just went to delete the "syslog" folder and so far it hasn't reappeared like it has before. I'm not sure if this has taken care of the problem or if there's more things I need to do.

No problem. To be sure things are clean, let's run one more thing.

Please perform a scan with Eset Onlinescan (NOD32).
(Requires Internet Explorer to work. If given the option, choose "Quarantine" instead of delete.)
Vista Users be sure to run Internet Explorer as Administrator. To do this, right-click on the IE icon in the Start Menu or Quick Launch Bar on the Taskbar and select "Run as Administrator" from the context menu.
  • You will see the Terms of Use. Tick the check-box in front of YES, I accept the Terms of Use
  • Now click Start.
  • You may receive an alert on the address bar that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component.
  • A new window will appear asking "Do you want to install this software?" (OnlineScanner.cab)".
  • Answer Yes to install and download the ActiveX controls that allows the scan to run.
  • Click Start.(the Onlinescanner will now prepare itself for running on your pc)
  • To do a full-scan, check: "Remove found threats" and "Scan potentially unwanted applications"
  • Press Scan to start the online scan. (this could take some time to complete)
  • When the scan has finished, it will show a screen with two tabs "overview" and "details" and the option to get information or buy software. Just close the window.
  • Now click Start > Run... > type: C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt
  • The scan results will open in Notepad.
  • Copy and paste the log results in your next reply.
Note: Some online scanners will detect existing anti-virus software and refuse to cooperate. You may have to disable the real-time protection components of your existing anti-virus and try running the scan again. If you do this, remember to turn\ them back on after you are finished
