New user here, hoping someone can help me. A Microsoft XP computer I am working on has a process called TOEUV.EXE that is steadily using around 87% of the CPU. I couldn't find much info on this online, other than it is a worm virus. I shut the computer down, removed the hard drive and attached it to my laptop using an IDE to USB cable and scanned it with Avira Premium. It found 5 infected files, which I deleted 4 of them. The 5th one detected, F:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\TRAYMGR.EXE cannot be deleted. Even worse, when I go through Win Explorer, I can't see the file. I even went through the command prompt to F: using old dos commands and can't see it that way either. I have searched the whole drive both through Win Explorer and through the command prompt and cannot find TRAYMGR.EXE anywhere.

After cleaning it with the exception of TRAYMGR.EXE, I put the drive back in, ran it in safe mode and all was fine. When I ran it in normal mode though the TOEUV.EXE process once again consumed about 87% CPU usage non-stop. I also cannot find any file called TOEUV.EXE or TOEUV.SCR on the drive.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what virus this is and what can clean it, or how to find the TRAYMGR.EXE file?

Thanks in advance!

One more note, Avira is saying the TRAYMGR.EXE is a virus called TR/Dropper.GEN. Not finding anything on similar problems to mine though.

Ok, looks like I got rid of it. It was one of two things, or possibly a combination of both. I ran Malwarebytes and while it was running I was exploring the infected drive and some folders were locked. I went through advanced security properties of the drive and gave ownership to myself from the root to all subfolders. When Malwarebytes finished the scan it said it removed the files I mentioned above. I put the hard drive back in and started up and all is well thus far.

Hello, sorry we could not reply sooner.

This is a dangerous Backdoor Bot

A backdoor Trojan can allow an attacker to
gain control of the system, log keystrokes, steal passwords, access personal
data, send malevolent outgoing traffic, and close the security warning
messages displayed by some anti-virus and security programs.

Be sure to change any passwords or security information held
on the infected computer. In particular, check whatever relates to online
banking financial transactions, shopping, credit cards, or sensitive
personal information. It is also wise to contact your financial institutions
to apprise them of your situation.
