Hi guys,

I am infected with this trojan and I wasn't able to get rid of it.
I am using CA eTrust ITM, AVG8 free ed, Spybot S&D and SuperAntiSpyware. The only one reporting the trojan is CA eTrust.
Trying to remove the files and edit the registries led to no results since it restores everything back.
Can you please help me to remove it from my PC.
Thank you very much in advance.

Hi there,

Sorry for the delay..

IEDFix and 404Fix are legitimate files that are used with tools such as SmitFraudFix...

Please download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) and save it to your Desktop.
  • Close all other windows before proceeding.
  • Double-click on dss.exe and follow the prompts.
  • When it has finished, dss will open two Notepads main.txt and extra.txt -- please copy (CTRL+A and then CTRL+C) and paste (CTRL+V) the contents of main.txt and extra.txt in your next reply.
Note:These logs may be too large to post in one reply, if so, please post extra.txt in a separate reply.

Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 7. Once done, uninstall any older versions of Java through add or remove programs.

Go to Kaspersky website and perform an online antivirus scan.

  • Read through the requirements and privacy statement and click on Accept button.
  • It will start downloading and installing the scanner and virus definitions. You will be prompted to install an application from Kaspersky. Click Run.
  • When the downloads have finished, click on Settings.
