Little help please

I also have the dxsetu.exe trojan/virus that is doing the rounds. I have read the other threads relating and have tried the various methods to remove, but I keep getting it back.

I can't find the c:\windows\dxsetu.exe or the other files that relate to this problem. I believe I got the trojan from Football Manager 2005 no cd crack.exe I got an immediate message from norton internet security saying ope6.exe was a security risk, so I bloked the access. I found the files and deleted them, and since then I've had this dxsetu.exe problem.

Another strange thing is that when I try to do a search with windows explorer I keep getting a blank dialog box come up, I have to hit ok and then nothing happens (as far as searching). Hence the reason I can't trake down the various files I need to find and delete.

Also getting a load of $$$$$$.bat files all over the place that start and stop various services.

Thanks in advance :)

I solved the problem!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

you should fixed the following problems with HijackThis
F0 - system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe winsock.scr
F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe winsock.scr
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [dxset.exe] C:\WINDOWS\dxsetu.exe

then delete the following files with GiPo@FileUtilities

wsock.dll
winsock.scr
dxsetu.exe
winlog.com
dxwinex.exe

commented: great job! +4

Silly question!!!

Never used Gipo@fileutilities before, I am right in saying that you use the Move on boot program. I've used this to delete several of the files, but can find dxsetu.exe and dxwin.exe

Thanks

Sorted now.

Thanks for your help. :cheesy:

Could you poste the HijackThis log-file please!

sorry you did it before :eek: :eek: :eek: :cheesy:

yes the problem ist the "Football Manager 2005 no cd crack.exe". This file was also the cause of my problem.

dxsetu.exe is a hidden file. you have to check "show hidden files" in the "File options".
i dont know if the words in "" an correct, because my WinXP is in German :lol:

Yep had exactly the same problem and it was because of the Football Manager 2005 no cd crack.
