Hi Everyone,

Hope somebody can advise me on this threat identified today by Ewido. It is named as:

"C:\WINDOWS\OEBackup.CAB/OEBackup.exe -> Heuristic.Win32.Hijacker1"

Ewido cannot clean the file and returns the error message below:

"The file 'C:\WINDOWS\OEBackup.exe' cannot be removed because it is embedded in the archive 'C:\WINDOWS\OEBackup.CAB'. Do you want to remove the whole archive?"

I have allowed Ewido to proceed with the action and am posting a Hijack this log for viewing.

I have absolutely no evidence of malware activity on my computer and constantly run updated antivirus, antitrojan and other adware programs such as Adaware, Spybot S & D, MS Antispyware, and ASquared with no detections.

Regards to all,
