Today, I "acquired" this.
Rootkitname is Win32:EVO
I have repeatedly run my virus program, Microsoft SuperAnti Spyware, disc clean up. Cleaner, and after choosing to delete it, rebooted, etc. it's still there. Any advice????

Hello Jodi.

From March 2012 Win32: evo-gen up to now, from the AVAST Forum this has been identified as a False Positive that continued to show.
If you think this matches your problem please upload the file to Virscan.org File Scanner

  • We prefer to use Internet Explorer for this.
  • Please go to VirSCAN.org FREE on-line scan service
  • Copy and paste the following file path into  the  "Suspicious files to scan" box on the top of the page:
    • Click on the Upload button
  • If a pop-up appears saying the file has been scanned already, please select the ReScan button.
  • Once the Scan is completed, click on the "Copy to Clipboard" button. This will copy the link of the report into the Clipboard.
  • Paste the contents of the Clipboard in your next reply.

Is there any reason why you believe it is a root-kit ??

We understand this can be frustrating, but if you read the first 2 links it may calm you a bit.


Thank You

Hi -

Quite often these items will "swirl around" in your Antivirus Detection area.


If you are still not sure, please delete M.S.E via Programs and Features then follow Microsoft Security Essentials Removal Tool

Then download a fresh copy of M.S.E. from here >> Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows and check for updates.


You can also run this Online Scanner while M.S.E. is uninstalled, just to be sure -


Run ESET Online Scanner.

  • For Internet Explorer users only, hold down Control  (Ctrl) and click on This Link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
  • Click the ESET Online button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
  • Click on esetsmartinstaller_enu. to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the esetsmartinstaller_enu icon on your desktop.
  • Check "YES, I accept the Terms of Use."
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives but do not Remove Threats"
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    Scan potentially unwanted applications
     Scan for potentially unsafe applications
     Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer.
  • Please be patient as this will take some time (Note: 2 hours is not unusual for a first scan).
  • When the scan completes, click List Threats
  • Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as "ESETScan". Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Click the Back button.
  • Click the Finish button.

NOTE:Sometimes if ESET finds no infections it will not create a log.


Thank You -
