I have tried searching the forum for generic.downloader.b but it didn't give me any results, so here I am, posting a new thread.
Yesterday, McAfee popped up a warning saying that my computer was affected with generic.downloader.b. I tried both the quarantine option and the delete option but McAfee wouldn't let me do both. It said make sure the file is not write protected.
So I did some research on the internet and read that I should turn off the "system restore" option for my XP in order to delete that .exe file. I immediately turned off the system restore option and restarted my computer. After my computer restarted I had no information about the virus anymore because I was stupid enough to forget to write down the path of the virus, but I remember it's in Temporary Internet Files/Content.IE5. So I did a scan of my computer and also that folder, and I also downloaded AdAware and did a scan. Nothing came up. Then I searched for .exe in the Content.IE5 folder and the results came up with 3 .exe files, with only one which I think had a "last accessed time" at around the time my McAfee warned me of the virus, and the program name is ABoxInst_int.exe. WHile doing this search I also came across a suspicious file sniffer.vbs
Now I don't even know if this trojan is still on my computer after I restarted it because McAfee no longer detects it even after a full system scan.
Because I can't remove it with McAfee and Adaware doesn't detect it, can anyone please tell me how to remove this trojan??
Thanks in advance.
