    Is there anyway of getting rid of it without paying for more software. I'm already with Mcafee who found it, but there is nothing to explain how to get rid of it.

Hi! my comp is nfected with a trojan masquerading as a security tool. it keeps popping dlhost.exe is infected with virus DOS.Jeff.812 this worm is trying to send our credit card details using dlhost.exe...


First try this but be careful:
To remove Trojan, you must first stop any Trojan processes that are running in your computer's memory. To stop all Trojan processes, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE to open the Windows Task Manager. Click on the "Processes" tab, search for Trojan, then right-click it and select "End Process" key.

To delete Trojan registry keys, open the Windows Registry Editor by clicking on the Windows "Start" button and selecting "Run." Type "regedit" into the box and click "OK." Once the Registry Editor is open, search for the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Trojan." Right-click this registry key and select "Delete."

Finally, to completely get rid of Trojan, you must manually remove other Trojan files. These Trojan files can be in the form of EXE, DLL, LSP, TOOLBAR, BROWSER HIJACK, and/or BROWSER PLUGIN. For example, Trojan might create a file like
%PROGRAM_FILES%\Trojan\Trojan.exe. Locate and remove these files.

OR

If you can pass to the Windows interface you can run a Trojan remover like this one Trojan Remover at cNET. If not do it manually, instructions HERE

If your OS is Windows go to this link by Microsoft Online Scanner
also this one is a good one from TenMicro HouseCall

How do I fix the dcom server launcher, the computer keeps shutting down after it's been on for about five minutes?


Click Here to Download this program (its free). Install it. Update it. Run a FULL scan of your computer (took about 30 minutes and the viruses didn't pop up until the very end of the scan). Delete ALL of them (note: you have to reboot to delete the ones in windows system 32) There will be a list of about 5-10 infections they should be similar to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\tdssdata (Trojan.Agent)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\tdss (Trojan.Agent)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Tcpip\Parameters\NameServer (Trojan.DNSChanger)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\T cpip\Parameters\NameServer (Trojan.DNSChanger)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet003\Services\T cpip\Parameters\NameServer (Trojan.DNSChanger)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\tdssadw.dll (Trojan.Agent)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\tdssl.dll (Trojan.Agent)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\tdssserf.dll (Trojan.Agent)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\tdssmain.dll (Trojan.Agent)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\tdssinit.dll (Trojan.Agent)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\tdsslog.dll (Trojan.Agent)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\tdssservers.dat (Trojan.Agent)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\tdssserv.sys (Trojan.Agent)

Thanks for using Fixya!

I can't get rid of a trojan "DNSChanger.f!rootkit". Any ideas?


download the "search and distory" from spybot.
take the computer off line while you scan for Trojan.
you need to scan the machine few time and restart it in bewteen each scan.

do a search on google for "dnsChanger*". and check the registry following the instruction.
NOTE: CARE MUST BE TAKEN WHEN VIEWING AND CHANGE THE SETTING IN THE REGISTRY.
make a backup copy of the registry if you are going to change anything at all.
