I got this message from a "friend" who added me about wanting to trade he sent me some link and out of my ignorant stupidity i clicked it and it downloaded i opened it thinking it was some screenshot since it had the whole .scr thing at the end and it basically exited me out of steam and brought out the Login screen (the steam log in screen looked slightly differant) by this time i figured it was some kind of key logger so i immediately uninstalled steam logged on my other PC changed my passwords for everything... about a minute after i think my internet went off for 30 secs and wondered why my antivirus or anti malware didn't picked it up till avast finally said it blocked a threat .



as soon as it was quarantined i just deleted it... But i'm still not sure if some kind of keylogger is hidden on this pc. i've ran malwarebytes avast spybot super antispyware none of them detected anything related.


i've followed discussions on this 

and tried using google on what the file name was not sure if it's the same thing though it seems so


i've read some comments saying it isn't a keylogger saying it directly controls your steam.exe program as it's running and trades the items from your account in an instant. I just reinstalled steam on the same pc and risked using the account again no items  were traded and no it hasn't loged me out of steam while i leave it on 24/7.  I don't want to have to reinstall windows and everything all over again but if it's the only way to be sure i will what do you guys think.

Well, lets make sure you are not infected. :)



Download and run wipe  and system ninja,

Now that you have disabled those un-needed start ups lets go into the settings, we will have Ccleaner run when your machine boots, so that you will never have to worry about cleaning temp files again.

To do this:

Now go to the advanced tab, and select close program after cleaning, now run the cleaner again this will close Ccleaner.



Reboot your machine and then follow the  instructions below.

Double click on the scan log, copy and paste here in your reply.



Step 3: Junkware Removal Tool.

  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, right-click it and select Run as administrator.

Same topic is posted on several other forums, see Google .


Posting a topic on several different forums involving malware...is probably not going to end successfully, since the techniques, tools used, and suggestions may conflict, IMO.
