Moved to a more appropriate area. It should be cleanable in the normal manner as per http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_159375.htm (see Removal tab - the additional instruction shown there for Windows ME/XP also apply to Vista and Windows 7).
If that doesn't help some more information would be useful such as what is your operating system, service pack and are you up to date with Windows Updates?
Thanks Ex brit. I have windows XP.
I'm not sure what "latest DATs and engine" refer to.
oh, I'm pretty sure I'm up to date with window's updates, and i'm not sure about the service pack.
Latest DAT's just means that VirusScan should be up to date which I'm assuming it is. Right-click My Computer and select Properties and tell me what it says there for Windows Edition (version) etc.
Is the infection being detected, if so what is it saying?
Service Pack 2
It is being detected and it pretty much says
Full Path C\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exe
Threats detected. (what I wrote above)
Then it says unable to delete to the right.
OK you must update to SP3 as soon as this problem is out of the way, Helpful hints on installing SP3 are here: http://community.mcafee.com/thread/2007 also read here on how support for XP SP2 (or less) is ending: http://community.mcafee.com/docs/DOC-1315
First though we have to get rid of this thing so download, install, update (very important) and run the free version of this tool: http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
Let it remove everything it finds and reboot immediately when asked to.
Is sp3 service pack 3?
Thanks for the Malwarebytes info. I've used it for a while now but I guess since I don't recall updating it, it didn't catch the problem. I updated it, performed a scan, rebooted, then performed a scan w/ McAfee and nothing's there. Thank you so much for your help!
Glad that cleared up. Yes SP3 is service pack 3.
with all the info on that other post, do I just:
disable McAfee and then run the program?
