Hi Guys,

I'm trying to clean an infected laptop and having started in safe mode and msconfig to disable start up programmes/services I've found something which "Uncle Google" cannot tell me - "why is ZCFRVWL listed in start/services menu and is it a Virus/trojan?"

If anyone can throw any light on this and how to find/remove it if required, I'd be very grateful.

Many Thanx in advance,

Chris.

Also, I'm sure a Malware/staff member will be on this shortly, but to get things rolling you can use:

Eset <<online (free) virus scanner
Malwarebytes

Where is it and is that all it says ..nothing before or after it?

Can you post a screenshot?
1. Download/install IrfanView .

2. Press Print Screen key to save image to clipboard.

3. Open IrfanView...click Edit, then Paste.

4. Click Image, then Resize/Resample.

5. Under Set New Size as Percentage of Original...try 50%, click OK. Changing the first value changes the second one also.

6. Click File/Save As...give it a name, the default format should be .jpg/.jpeg. Click Save, choosing a location where you can easily find the saved graphic.

Submit as attachment to your next post.




It does look like malware and you should run those tools and post the logs.
