Can not download all live updates.


If your anti virus will not update try to access an online trojan sccnner Symantec has one. If you can not access the site or complete the scan you most likely have Win32.Worm.Downadup.Gen.
It prevents any access to any antivirus software and windows updates it also turns off any installed antivirus updates. Removal is actually really simple just go here

Worm.win32.autorun.blw virus appear in my system i already use kesper sky, but not solved. please advise a solution. thanx


When the executable is run on the victim's machine, the worm copies itself to the following locations:
  • %Application Data%\remove.exe (Copy of itself)
  • %Application Data%\autorun.inf
Where %Application Data% = c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data
Autorun.inf has following command
Exp: [autorun]
shellExecute=remove.exe
The worm adds a Run entry in registry so that it executes itself at every startup:
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    "(Default)" = "%Application Data%\remove.exe"
Symptoms -
  • Presence of above mentioned files.
  • Presence of registry entries mentioned above.
Method of Infection Method of Infection - This worm spreads by using autorun.inf on shared drives and removable devices.
Removal - A combination of the latest DATs and the Engine will be able to detect and remove this threat. AVERT recommends users not to trust seemingly familiar or safe file icons, particularly when received via P2P clients, IRC, email or other media where users can share files.

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.
