I have EZ antivirus and firewall and when I do a scan it says this :

File: C:\windows\system32\tftp4576 Size: 251812 bytes
Creation Time: 15:57:22 7/20/2004 Last Access Date: 2/18/2006 Last Write Time: 15:58:22 7/20/2004
Virus Name: Win32.Malum.BJK

It also says it cannot remove it. Does anyone know what it is and if I can get rid of it? any help would be appreciated.
Thanks. :thumbsup:

Hi there,

The virus comes under many different names. I found this also:
File C:\WINDOWS\System32\TFTP4576 infected by "Backdoor.Win32.Rbot.gen" Virus!

Have you actually tried to delete the file yourself. Navigate to the system32 folder and search for it. If you cannot find it you may have to show hidden files. Read how to do this here. Try and delete the file if you can find it.

If you recieve any error messages when you try and delete the file just pop back here and let me know. Good luck.

Try doing this scan in Safe Mode also. You may have more luck removing it that way.

If your still having a problem deleting this after following D-Trojanator and Leurgy's instructions you can also try one of these tools:


Helps delete locked files with error messages like:
-Cannot delete file: Access is denied
-There has been a sharing violation.
-The source or destination file may be in use.
-The file is in use by another program or user.
-Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.
