Hi, can anyone help? i have recently picked up a nasty trojen downloader (are'nt they all ?) ive scanned it with avg - free edition and the file path is C\program files\common files\W?nSxS\lsass.exe. Although every time i scan it tells me that it has DELETED the file it still appears everytime i bootup and rescan. I use firefox so i think i am limited to 'cleanup' programs(?) it also shows C:\drsmartload45a.exe on the same line. can anybody help?

The presence of (?) in file/folder names is a sign of a purity scan infection which can be difficult to remove.

drsmartload45a.exe is a sign of an alcan worm infection. Again that can be difficult to remove without expert help.

I suggest you read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, not here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts.

It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy. Please be patient as they are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have no replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, a team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
