Haylp! Trojans!

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Recently I have been having some problems with a couple of Trojans that I can't seem to get rid of. They have caused Chrome to crash a few times so have gone back to IE for the time being and have also deleted Limewire.

    The files are TR/Dldr.Tracur.B.8 and TR/Drop.Agent.bkjy.

    I use Avira as an antivirus and every time I boot up the comp it detects them no matter how many times I put them in quarantine.

    Any ideas on what to do with this?

    Thanks in advance

  3. Go to www.moosoft.com and download the 30 day trial of The Cleaner which specialises in trojans. Simples!!!
  4. When you are up and running again, try using FrostWire, it seems a lot safer than LimeWire.
  5. Thanks msr, seems to have found 11 infected files, quarantined and deleted them. Am using Firefox as IE started giving me gyp, will see how that goes.,

    Thanks again

    Sound like £11 for Hols4Heroes to me ;)
  7. Will sort that when I am off shift, I can't seem to get AVG free any more, any ideas on a good alternative?
  8. Avira if you can put up with a pop up advert once a day.
  9. Trouble is Avira is having problems with these trojans that i mentioned earlier

  11. Try www.avast.com

    It's worked well for me, takes time to boot up, as it's constantly updating, but freezes attack sites before they can infect you.

    Nice one, have gone for the Cloud one at the mo, just waiting for it to get working and will sort out the h4h thing late, thanks for all the help on this, maybe I can start using Chrome again as i quite like it :)
  13. Avast anti-virus (http://www.avast.com/)
    Superantispyware for malware scans (http://www.superantispyware.com/)
    Blacklight rootkit scanner (http://www.f-secure.com/en_EMEA/security/security-lab/tools-and-services/blacklight/)
    CCleaner to clear the crap off your system (http://www.ccleaner.com/)
    Defraggler to optimise data storage (http://www.piriform.com/defraggler)

    All free and bloody good!

    And make sure Windows auto-updates is turned on (some malware disables it).

    Any problems, post again and I'll be glad to help. For health reasons I'm a civi IT analyst, so have a lot of experience with problems like viruses etc.

    Chrome is great, Firefox also.
  14. Right

    Used Cloudbuster but it kept detecting a file and not doing anything about it, so I tried avast with the same result, it keeps flashing me with warnings but not doing any of the actions it's supposed to, delete, repair move to chest etc.

    Surprised Malwarebytes didn't get it. Have you tried updating it and running it again?
