First time poster though I have dropped into bleepingcomputer from time to time.


I just removed a DOJ virus from someones computer. I went in through an admin account and AVG Free, Malwarebytes and McAfee rootkit products did not find anything. Logged out and in to the users limited account and found the virus was still existing. I used Hitman Pro in the admin account and it found a cpuhelper.dll in C:\ProgramData\NVidia\Spaces it labeled as suspicious and also a Softonics class (forgot to take not of the folder. I quarantined the dll and delete the Softonic reference and when I switched back the DOJ virus appears to be gone. I ran several scanners on it andnothing was found.


I am reporting it here as some of the scanners I used that I read would detect and remove this virus did not so I thought it may have found a new place to hide.
