Trojan Dialer problems?

#1
Is anyone else having problems with a pain in the arse with Trojan Dialers?

I am having a hell of a time with trojan.dialer.qs - tried everything I can think of to get rid of the cnut to no avail.

Has anyone had it and managed to get rid of it? If so would they mind telling how they did?

Cheers

You've been looking at naughty websites again haven't you Hits??? (casts the first stone)

Use an up to date AV package and that should solve the problem.

I presume you've used an anti-virus programme.

And Spybot, Ad-aware and A-squared (all freely downloadable).

And Windows Defender (also free).

And Windows Live (also free).

You could also download ntl's Netguard (though you may have to be a subscriber for this).

These seem to work for me. Not that I'm neurotic, you understand.

What exactly is the problem? Are you simply unable to delete the trojan or does it keep re-appearing after you have deleted it?

Depending on the problem, it might be that you need to turn off System Restore (assuming that you are using Windows). Delete all of the problem files and then re-enable System Restore. System Restore protects files and can prevent Anti-Virus/Adware software from deleting them.

Dialler?

Are you still using dial-up?

Or is this something totally different which also affects broadband?


Dial-up is useless for porn! You're half-way to the tickly bit, before the photo is finished downloading......and it's a real bummer when you eventually find out that the model with the big tits has a massive c0ck to match!

Spybot - GOT
Ad-Aware - GOT
Windows Defender - GOT
Windows Live - GOT
AVG Anti Virus - GOT
AVG Anti-Spyware - GOT
XoftSpy - GOT
Latest version of Firefox - GOT

None of them have made a blind bit of difference. Fcuking thing keeps coming back. It doesn't stop me accessing t'Internet or downloading. But booting up in XP is noticeably slower.

And the_matelot, you grubby grubby man, I only got it after downloading and installing MS Office 2003 Pro. Smartarse. :p

if you are using win xp everytime you install you save info in the system recovery section your virus hides in there and self replicates. I use spybot s&d a freeware programme that runs in tandam with avg or avira
one you have a clean system you can enable it to protect your filea and not change anything without your permission. it is also good for programmes that say they are free(lphant p2p) and then try to install adware.

Run this once a day to shift most stuff from your hard drive.

Apart from that I would look at the report from the virus scan then search the web for geek discussions. They always have an answer.

You could still try A-squared - http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/free/

It takes a lot longer to scan your system than Spybot and AdAware, but I've found it picks up stuff that the other two miss. (Sadly, the converse is also true, hence why I have all three).

Also beware downloading anti-spy/anti-virus programmes from the Net - I've found to my cost that many of them inject nasties into your PC - even the versions that you pay a subscription for.

Get sophos AV software. It's very very good and will kill all nasties in your system.

Hitty, download this program:

http://www.merijn.org/files/hijackthis.zip

Unzip it, then run it ( it is safe I promise you!!!)

It will give you the option to create a log file- do this.

PM the log file to me and I will have a look at it for you.

As the butler said, the originating file is probably hiding in your system recovery files and you may well have to boot up in safe mode to get rid of it properly.

If you have tried all these then you have two options, use regedit and look for the file reference there, remove all instances (the 2nd level folders) then delete all instances of the actual files by doing an 'attrib [filename] /s] from the root of c: in a command window this should list any files that are hidden and you can then reset the attribute to -h and delete.

The second option is to use BARTPE (downloadable system CD creation) with instructions. This allows you to build a bootable windows XP CD with all the tools you can think of to erradicate cr4p like this.

PM me if required.
