Hi i need help to get rid of this problem. I have anti-virus software that keeps saying that i have Win32.Propo on my computer. So i ran it 3 times and came up with other things besides propo but they are all in system 32. After that i checked with all 3 of my spyware/adware programs and came up blank. They are 1. etrust Pest Patrol 2. Microsoft Anti-Spyware 3. Ad-ware SE Personal. No, i don't have hijack this.


Any help would be nice thank you for your time,
Garrett Hutchison

Propo Family - Win32.Propo is a family of multi-component trojans that download and execute arbitrary files, modify registry settings, and monitor an affected user's web usage. They have been associated with adware.

First, try running your antivirus/spyware programs in Safe Mode:
How to start Windows in Safe Mode

Run these online virus scanners:

Also this online Trojan scanner:
TrojanScan

I also suggest, that you install and run ewido security suite.
When installing ewido security suite, under Additional Options uncheck:
Install background guard
Install scan via context menu

If the above doesn't help rid you of the problem, then:

Read How to post a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
