Hello im new here, and i delt with dl.exe 3 times already,
i got dl.exe through msn first, this was tenga-b
i got dl.exe through a friend who didnt know he was infected this is tenga-a
and i didnt know i was infected and i had a file full of exes i wanted to send to my bro i sent those files to him notice the virus thought i took it off, and took back the exe files and owned myself xD
its way longer then that but thats how i got them and idiotily got it badly xD
anyways heres what i did, to finnaly remove dl.exe
i updated my windows xp,
start>all programs>windows update
always keep your windows up to date, i just found that out the hard way.
after updating, it told me i had malicious malware on my computer, it told me to scan it, once scanned(40 mins) it said it was removed along with, examples of virus's and what i was infected with along with info, i didnt use an anti virus but i did use 3 anti viruses and hijackthis to confirm its not there anymore.
the symptoms are
internet going down repeatedly and staying down sometimes, every exe you touch says dl.exe in a black box that apears and disapears etc
i noticed when your internet goes down it doesnt actually go down
it prevents you from opening a connection, i was on msn, and my internet went down but msn was still on, but once i closed msn it stayed down until i closed the program, if all else fails do a system restore and do what i did.
