This is just a FYI:   .... I have Win7 and ran a scan with Microsoft Security Essentials..  Came up with : Trojan C/win32/Lecpetex.A..  This program seemed to have removed the trojan just fine (I am re-running the scan to be sure). 

 

I was curious as to what it was so I did a search.  There is nothing on the internet except in Microsoft and they say they don't have any details.

 

So either this Trojan just came out today or ??, either way FYI, MSE seems to have cleared it just fine. If the re-scan I am currently running should fail, I will return to post an update. Otherwise, just letting you know. :thumbup2:

Hi,
 
I cannot comment on what MSE has found because just a name is not enough to tell.
Do you need assistance in thoroughly checking your computer?
If yes, please run a FRST scan:


Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.
(If you are not sure which version (32-/64-bit) applies to your system, download and try to start both of them as just the right one will run.)
  • Start FRST with administator privileges.
  • Make sure the option Addition.txt is checked and press the Scan button.
  • When finished, FRST will produce two logs (FRST.txt and Addition.txt) in the same directory the tool was run from.
  • Please copy and paste these logs in your next reply.

I'm sorry to have troubled you.  No, I don't need help, Microsoft Security Essentials was able to clear the trojan completely.

 

I only posted that post because I could not find anything on the internet about THAT trojan and I didn't know if it was something new that was coming out and I just happened to have gotten it. I posted that information, to "warn others", there is no information on that trojan it MAY BE new.

 

I do want to thank you for your trouble and I am very sorry for the misunderstanding.  Thank you for your prompt response.

All right, thank you for your effort.
