Chinese virus? Please help :'(

Hello you all out there, I was wondering if someone can help me?

I've been having a problem with my browsers for a few weeks now, and suspect there's an effing spyware or trojan in there somewhere >:[

I spotted this in the startup folder;
File Name: ??????????????e
Startup Value: ??????????????e
File Path: ??????????????e
Startup Type: Registry: Current User
Location: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
Classification: Disabled
SpyNet Voting: Not Available

And in case the characters are not showing up in your browser, here's a screenshot

It's disabled now, but I'd really like to know what it is. I tried Googling - but although people have also had it, nobody has said what it is...

Can anyone translate the characters for me? Please??

go to run
type regedit
go to software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run

find the perpetrator filename and remove it

restart the pc, press ctrl-shift-esc and find if the file is still running at processes

run a full anti-virus scan and run a program called SpyBot: Search & Destroy

Next time, I suggest you run Nod32 SystemWorks as your antivirus and anti malware

Thanks, I checked the registry and the file is no longer there; I don't think it's running at startup. But I wonder what it is, it looks very suspicious...

Su-Lyn on :

Hope the virus disappears. :S Btw, I've just created a new blog. Click on It's my new political/social commentary blog, which I hope to update regularly (hopefully..everyday). Haha. Do add it to your blog roll list!

julian on :

eugene - Thanks, seems to be OK now anyway >touching wood

Rain on :

Now I have a chinese-like virus. It has a penguin for an icon and the characters keep changing. I have tries spybot, mbam and Super Antispyware, all run individualy and in different modes. Nothing touches it.

So far, it has disabled the task manager, and the One note notebook. I am lost to what to do. A little help?

julian on :

Sorry I can't help you there. Why do you say 'Chinese-like'? Are there Chinese characters? If so, try googling them.

You don't mention running a usual antivirus, I assume you have? If not you can try AVG.

Try running the antispyware etc. in safe mode...

You sound like you need the help of a forum such as - try it out.

Good luck :-)
