Hi - I installed a program that I downloaded from the internet back around late December 2009 / early January 2010. It came as an exe installer format. Today, McAfee scanned the exe installer file and reported the PWS-Dynbalom.gen.a trojan. No idea why it never picked it up until now, unless it is a recently identified trojan. I have Malwarebytes too, updated as of today, which says the file is clean. I ran ESET, which reported "a variant of win32/PSW.Fignotok.B trojan" on the exe installer file. I have deleted the exe installer file and full scans of my system by McAfee and MBAM say everything is clean.

I'm wondering if I have been running a keylogger or similar since late december / early january and if so, what steps should I be taking to scan my computer for it since it was obviously in the installer, but scans of my system drive do not find anything.

Thanks for the help

Hello and welcome. This is possibly a False positive. We should double check it before we take action.

Lets' upload this file for a second opinion on what it actually is..

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:
How to see hidden files in Windows

Please click this link-->Jotti

When the jotti page has finished loading, click the Browse button and navigate to the following file and click Submit.
<filepath>suspect.file

Please post back the results of the scan in your next post.

If Jotti is busy, try the same at Virustotal: http://www.virustotal.com/


NOTE:
For submission to a specific anti-virus vendor see Submitting Virus Samples: How to Submit a Virus.

Rerun MBAM (MalwareBytes) like this:

Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan (normal mode).
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot into normal mode.

Ok, empty McAfee quarantine, next we do this then eun McAfee again.

Now you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been backed up, renamed and saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok". Disk Cleanup will scan your files for several minutes, then open.
  • Click the "More Options" tab, then click the "Clean up" button under System Restore.
  • Click Ok. You will be prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?"
  • Click Yes, then click Ok.
  • Click Yes again when prompted with "Are you sure you want to perform these actions?"
  • Disk Cleanup will remove the files and close automatically.
Vista and Windows 7 users can refer to these links: Create a New Restore Point in Vista or Windows 7 and Disk Cleanup in Vista.
