Trojan.Gampass and Trojan.Wimad

My friend played his cd on my pc and Norton detected these two infected files but couldn't remove them.
I took out the cd and scanned the pc again and Norton didn't pick up anything. Does this mean the pc is still clean?

Hi sdcurrie

Yes your PC is still clean the reason why Norton could'nt remove the virusses is becuase it is on the cd and norton can't write to the cd but it did stop the viruses to spread to your PC.
Just another example why it so important to have a antivirus installed and to keep it up to date.

If you have detected a trojan infection, is alt + f10 the way to restor your computer?


You do not want to restore. You want to extract the trojan. REstore actually means reload. EVERYTHING, and you have all data lost.

Tons easier to extract trojan.

I have trojan like which can affect my laptop hack password take out my credit card details.


Have you got an anti-virus program?
If you have did it remove this trojan virus?
If you have not an anti-virus program or the program cannot remove this trojan, then I recommend you format the hard drive and reinstall Windows, the laptop device drivers and your programs.
This is the only sure way to remove such a threat.
Although this is a drastic method, it is better to be sure you do not lose your money to crooks. After installing Windows, install a good quality anti-virus program and keep the virus definition files updated regularly.

What is a WMA/TrojanDownloader?


officially labelled WMA/TrojanDownloader.GetCodec

Win32/GetCodec.A is a type of malware that modifies media files. This Trojan converts all media files found on a computer to the WMA format and adds a field to the header that includes a URL pointing the user to a new codec, claiming that the codec has to be downloaded so that the media files can be read. WMA/TrojanDownloader.GetCodec.Gen is a downloader closely related to Wimad.N which facilitates infection by GetCodec variants like Win32/GetCodec.

This is a tough virus to remove so I suggest removing it early on. It can cause alot of damage to your media files.

Cant access files


I wouldn't try to install Norton on a machine I suspected had a virus (or at all really). There is a Norton removal tool on the Symantec website that might be useful, but you still need to get rid of the Trojan. There are a lot of free online virus scanners that should do the job. If you can go online in safe mode that would be best, or you could disable everything on startup using MSConfig.
