Hi. I was on my laptop and I have had Trend Micro's program about a month now. Everything has been fine. I never took the Norton Anti off though. So all the sudden Trend Micro is popping up alerts like mad that a virus called JAVA OPENSTR.A is appearing in a bunch of files under C:\Windows\TEMP. Now Norton is doing the same but listing the virus Trojan.ByteVerify in that same folder. I ran Trend Micro to see if it could pick up the source. Picked up nothing. So I went to Norton's site and it said run Norton in safe mode. I did that and nothing was picked up. I ran Spybot it picked up Viewpoint and fixed it. Still didn't help. Now I had seen some previous posts where the virus was atleast picked up in a virus scan. I don't know if JAVA OPENSTR.A and Trojan.ByteVerify are one in the same or what. I just finished Trojan Hunter which found nothing as well. I'm going to try running Ad-Aware. What else can I do? :sad: Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you.

To remove trojans there is a tool which needs to be downloaded and run.

1. Please download Stinger and save it to your desktop

2. Double-click on the stinger.exe file and open the tool

3. Choose your entire hard drive to scan.

4. Choose Scan Now

5. Stinger will fix anything that it finds

6. Click the File menu and select Save report to file

7. Post the log file results here in this thread.

Reboot to SAFE mode to delete files
How to start computer in safe mode

delete your temporary files by deleting all files and folders that are in those folders (do not delete the temp folder itself) like for example
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\
C:\Temp\
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp\
Also delete your Temporary Internet Files, be sure to also select delete all offline content.

I went to save the log and it just says what it says at the start up and says Number of clean files: 141948 . Panda Active Scan said it found 3 infected files but it froze before I could get the results. Both were running at the same time. I'm running Panda Active Scan again it has brought up 2 of the 3 already. I'll post when its done.

Okay here is a report from Panda Active Scan and the only log Stinger gave me.

Stingers Log:

Scan initiated on Fri Mar 04 06:10:02 2005

Number of clean files: 142755

Panda's Log:

I hope this is helpful in fixing it. I'm going to clear the folders that you said to now.

What operating system do you have? Please reply before doing the following;

Reboot into safe mode following the instructions here and Clear out your Temporary internet files and other temp files.
Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel >Internet Options.

Under the General tab click the Delete temporary internet files,
delete all Offline content as well. Clear out Cookies.

Also, go to Start > Find/search > Files or folders > in the named box, type: *.tmp and choose Edit > select all -> File > delete.

Empty/delete the entire contents of the C:\Windows\temp folder and C:\temp folder, if you have one. (Contents but not the folder itself.)

This one too if Win2K or XP.
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp\

In order to view these files you may have to select 'show hidden files/folders.' Instructions on how to here.

Empty the Recycle Bin.

Yes. Do this too please.

Go here and download and run Silent Runners.vbs. It generates a log, please post the information back in this thread.

Been signed on my account on Windows for about 5 minutes. *Crosses fingers* Nothing bad yet. Is there maybe some settings or programs I need to add or remove to prevent it from happening again? Thank you both for your help I really appreciate it alot.

Is microsoft's antispyware worth having or should I stick with the others? and should I have trojanguard on?

Thanks very much to crunchie and caper. No problems coming up. Thanks for the spyware guide crunchie. I have installed all those programs.

A lot of ppl recommend M$ antispyware, but because it is Beta, I cannot recommend it myself :).

Hi Chrunchie ,I too cant recomend it but i have it running on my system now and so far i like it .
Whats that Opera Beta link doing in your sig!:) HeHEHE

It's actually not a link :D just advertising what browser I am using.
I have the MS antispyware on my PC too, although I have all the scanners inactive as I do not use IE. I scan maybe once a month with it. For the last 3-4 months I have scanned with Adaware, Spybot, my AV and now MS and not even a cookie has been found :mrgreen:. MS did mis-identify two legitimate programs though.
