Pentium 4 running XP Home SP3. Antivirus is Kaspersky Internet Security 2010.
Had an infection of Trojan.Win32.Agent.etxw and Packed.Win32.Krap.hc, which Kaspersky detected and cleaned.
After this, I had the following side effect symptoms:
When running a program such as foo.exe, which had an ini file associated with it foo.ini, Windows Installer msiexec.exe would run and attempt to do an install from a hijacked application. The installer would fail because Kaspersky had deleted the install package.
I have since completely removed the hijacked application and all files and references to it. I have cleaned all references to it out of the registry.
Now when running foo.exe, msiexec still runs but fails because it cannot find the referenced install package. Msiexec stays running in task manager. This is an annoyance but not a critical issue that I would like to resolve.
I posted to the virus forum; received a reply and performed a lot of cleaning; my guru over there says my system is clean but I should post here for help fixing this ongoing problem. My original post is:
Thanks - any help appreciated
