I have probably been infected by trojan horse dialer for over a month so I cannot remember exactly how I got infected but I think it is because I was using IE but now I have permanently switched to Firefox. I have scanned my computer with Spybot search and destroy, adaware, avg antivirus, and vundo both in normal and safe mode. It seems as though I have gotten rid of trojan horse dialer with the vundo tool but then I became infected with trojan horse Lop.as. Everytime I do scan my computer with an antivirus tool the viruses and trojans usually show up in the internet cache or temporary internet files. That is probably why I cannot remove these viruses permanently. I regularly get those popups from AVG saying that they have detected the threat of trojan horse Lop.AS. I am running on Windows XP with SP2. The security tools that I run are the teatimer of Spybot, AVG real-time antivirus, and Zonealarm firewall. Now that I think I have gotten rid of Trojan horse dialer.COH my computer seems to be running at the previous speed before becoming infected. However, I still want to get rid of the Trojan Horse Lop.AS since the popup notice from AVG is so annoying. In conclusion, I have come to BC for a permanent solution.

Unfortunately, though, this October when the latest batch of renewals and new awardees were admitted we found a new MVP who leaves a bad taste in our mouths. This awardee is Cyril Paciullo, otherwise known as Patchou, and is well know as the creator of Messenger Plus. As a program, Messenger Plus actually has some slick features, but our problem is that this program also comes with a known adware and Trojan called LOP.

What is funny is when Microsoft Security MVP Derek Knight scanned the main executable for Messenger Plus, at the free scanning site VirusTotal, Microsoft was the only vendor that stated that the installer was a threat.

With all the malware your having problems with it probably would be best for you to post a hijackthis log. Please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. About half way down are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log.

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, 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 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. 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.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

I still have the trojan horse Lop.as popup threat from avg but now I am getting popups from ZA firewall, where w?wexec.exe is asking for permission to access the internet. Just like you have suggested I will post a HJT log but do you think that if I scan with windows defender or macafee stinger, it would solve the problem.

THanks for replying buddy125 and quietman7.

No. w?wexec.exe is related to a PurityScan infection. You probably have other malware as well and these tools will not detect/remove everything.
