My ZoneAlarm has detected Win32.Softomate [trojan] but it keeps on recreating itself after deletion. I have to date deleted it 7 times total. I recently downloaded this program which i should've know better not to download [i thought it was a neat archive] :
[the .exe file was named "681_Fonts_for_Web_Design.exe"]
The connection speed during the download was erratic and looked like someone was stealing my bandwidth somehow?? [btw it was from a russian site]. Anyhow, to get the download done faster, i used flashget.
After dble-clicking the .exe file it showed an install window w/ about 5-6 lines of just question marks substituting in effect the words that constituted the install notes; i guess i didn't have the right language setting ? so it just showed lines of ????????????????? then another 5 lines of question marks.
After cancelling the install before anything could be extracted, [i'm guessing*] the damage was already done, though i'm still not sure if the suspicious .exe file is actually responsible for the Win32.Softomate trojan.
I've not yet run any of the scans in safe mode yet.
haven't turned off-then-on again System restore yet.
haven't deleted everything in my \windows\temp folder yet.
i've ran the following scans:
TrendMicro online scan
Ewido full scan
AVG full scan
when i run ccleaner i get this error
Runtime error '0'
