I encountered two malware Rauoya.exe and JTPEQ.exe which utilise between 50% and 80% of the CPU.
I think it is the same malware which is changing its name as after the first machine began giving trouble it was replaced while it came to be checked and the replacement worked fine until after the same USB Flash drive used in the first machine was used one the second. Then the second began doing the same things.
I have tried stopping it at start-up, through the msconfig and the registry. I have looked for any signs of the executable in the program files. Finally I installed Nod-32. When I did this it immediately stopped running, prior to any scanning. The scan of the machine revealed two unrelated trojans. I am thinking it has detected the nod and is in some type of incubation.
I should also mention that I used my USB drive on the machine to install malwarebytes and a subsequent scan of my usb drive revealed that the jtpeq files were on it so I immediately formatted the drive.
How do I deal with such a program when I can find it. I would prefer not to have to reformat the machine as that would mean backing up the data which increases the possibility that it might jump.
Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
