Hello im new here kinda found this site whilst browsing for help with this infection.
Win32/Ldpinch windows defender is reporting this

Password Stealer

This program has potentially unwanted behaviour.

Review the alert details to see why the software was detected. If you do not like how the software operates or if you do not recognize and trust the publisher, consider blocking or removing the software.

But norton / spybot/ adaware and super anti spyware are reporting that i'm clean apart from some tracking cookies here and there.
What I'm wondering is if it is a false negative ..
Any help will be great fully received.

Discovered: November 3, 2003
Updated: November 4, 2003 03:26:39 PM PST
Also Known As: Trojan.PSW.Ldpinch.s [Kaspersky], PWSteal.Ldpinch
Type: Trojan Horse
Infection Length: 17,408 bytes
Systems Affected: Windows 2000, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP

When Infostealer.Ldpinch is executed, it does the following:

1. Copies itself to %Windir%.

Note: %Windir% is a variable. The Trojan locates the Windows installation folder (by default, this is C:\Windows or C:\Winnt) and copies itself to that location.
2. Adds the value:


to the registry key:


so that the Trojan runs when you start Windows.

3. Records the following information to a log file and then sends the information to the hacker at a hardcoded email address:
* User keystrokes
* System information
* User email accounts
* Passwords from the following programs:
o ICQ99b-2003a/Lite/ICQ2003Pro
o Miranda-icq
o Trillian ICQ&AIM
o &RQ

Submit this file:


to http://www.virustotal.com/vt/ and http://virusscan.jotti.org/

That should tell you right off if this is bad or a false positive. My guess is that it is bad.

I would get rid of the file as we know it bad by clearing your quarantine so they are no longer on your computer. I would also suggest you scan your computer with the kaspersky online virus scanner:


If it still finds more malware, then do the steps here:


last but not least, this malware is a keylogger and information stealer. I advise you change all your passwords for sites, your computer, etc.
