I'm sorry if this is not the perfect place to post this, but I am desperaqte. I have AVG anti-virus software which detected 5 trojan horses on my laptop and successfully removed 4 of them. The remaing one is still in my WINNT/Systm32 folder and despite searching the net all day so far I'm still at square one. AVG cannot help...so if anyone knows anything about xmorkdvh.exe, which is a Trojan Dialler, I'd be mighty grateful. Please post something or email me asap.

Thanks everyone....

Spybot Search & Destroy Nov 26, 2004

Go to http://www.safer-networking.org/en/mirrors/index.html and download Spybot.

The official website for this is www.spybot.info

It's completely free. Download is about 5mb in size, installs in seconds, and finds things missed by NAV, Ad-Aware and The Cleaner.

FYI: If you are using broadband/cable connection, don't panic. These dialler trojans change your modem dialling to use a premium rate number when connecting to the internet (charging extortionate amounts per minute).

Regrun Nov 26, 2004

There is such a program called Regrun or Regrun Gold. http://www.greatis.com/security/
In case you will not find a remedy you can use this one which does not allow any program to run if you do not allow to do it.

It is not an antivirus as it is. It scan a disk with all the files which try to run, and ask the user what to do.

Sorry if did not help.

Hi there Nov 26, 2004

hijackthis is also a good option if above should not work.
Try first the above search and destroy as this is easy to follow. With hijackthis you have to really read the instructions carefully.

I once had a huge problem too and I had to get a computer specialist and he told me to write in my webbrowser

http://xxxxxxxx/uninstall2.exe


the name of this virus (instead of the XXXXXX above). Than a window opend and said do you want to safe or open, than you open regardless of the warning that it could have a malicious code. After another window opens which says uninstall and it you click on that and this bad thing will be history.
you have to know though the exact address of this virus.

Good luck
Andrea

Try this Nov 27, 2004

Also try disabling your System Restore, run the antivirus, the Antihijack (spyboot, Lavasoft or others) once the Trojan/virus is been removed restart your pc and enable System Restore. In most cases it will solve your problem.
