Trojan Detection on Any Explorer folder or program - HELP!!
Posted on 2004-11-01
I have been dealing with this issue for the last 2 months....
I found that while online, I continuously began receiving a McAfee warning that a trojan has been detected and removed. I would choose to continue what I was doing. I then would run a virus scan and it found Backdoor-BDD on my computer. The problem began to occur like every 10 seconds.
I then installed the necessary windows updates, as well as office updates and the GDI tool...I ran another virus scan and this time it had found over 200 instances of the trojan and when I tried to delete them about 25 of them were no longer found. I have and have run Spybot Search and Destroy, Stinger (latest update two weeks ago), and my McAfee virus scan and each time I delete the files. This seemed to fix the problem - for about a couple of days and then I started thinking - it was in Windows - so I turned off System Restore. That worked for like a month....but I've still noticed only sporadic occurances of the trojan found and removed....but then I started thinking again... I noticed that I only get the messages when I open any Explorer folder or file - such as in My Computer, any navigational folders, any of my Office programs and while in Internet Explorer. Which lately I haven't used - hence the thought that it was fixed. I need help in trying to remove the script or startup command that's running on open of Explorer items. Doe anyone have any suggestions???
