I have an Asus N53JQ laptop, and for the past few days Microsoft security essentials has been telling me I have a worm Ainslot.a located in win32.
When I Quarantine/remove it, it says that WUDhost.exe is a suspected program. Also, Malwarebytes finds it as a trojan.

I went on safe mode to delete it, and it worked for about 2 and a half hours on normal mode until it came back.
It hasn't done anything to my system (yet...) but it keeps coming up after I log in. I don't want to leave it too long as it may become worse.

Malwarebytes just gave me a dialog box saying:

C:\Users\"My Name)\appdata\local\temp\IDMANUNUNCRYPTED.EXE

It could be Internet download manager, but I uninstalled that recently...

I really appreciate your help BP :)

Hello. I cannot gat good enough info on these yet.
Is this XP or another?

Please post that MBAM log.
The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.

Let's run another scan also...
I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan
  • Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on Posted Image to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check Posted Image and check Remove found threats
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    • Scan potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push Posted Image
  • Push Posted Image, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Push the Posted Image button.

NOTE: In some instances if no malware is found there will be no log produced.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
