Check again for the latest on that virustotal page, the latest has a hit from Avast, and as long as you have the latest definitions and updates, it should get detected.


Bit disconcerting that out of all those AV programs only Avast is the one that can detect it. Even worse is the fact this thing has been floating around for nearly a month.

Did you even get to the chat? it never said that someone was connecting.


I stopped the connection the moment my PC started playing weird sounds.

Well, that list is a week old, so, maybe there's more. Antza said that he uses Avast, so if he has the latest AV definitions, that should detect it.

I do, and it's not finding anything.
it automatically terminates the connection if a virus is being downloaded.

I found this, which says where it's located: http://www.spywareremovalhelp.org/virus-r....us.html

I checked the location myself and it's not there.

I deleted the WinMonitor.exe but am currently running a bunch of scans on my PC. Until Microsoft Security gets an update I don't think I will be reconnecting and risking it downloading again.

Well, I did an update for Microsoft Security Essentials and am running a full scan now. Also did a quick and critical point scan with SUPERAntiSpyware and other than a bunch of tracking cookies, it didn't find anything. I'm also running a full scan with the antispyware since it can catch things that the usual antivirus doesn't.

Microsoft Security

Is that your dedicated anti-malware software? If it is, I strongly advise getting something else, preferably avast. I started using it 4 years ago and I haven't looked back since, it changed my computer-using life. Every other user I know feels similarly (maybe not that it changed their life, but certainly that it's the best option out there).

I had Avast but I continually got infected and a few friends recommended Microsoft Security Essentials (this is not windows security garbage).

With Avast I got infected 6 times in a row with some fake anti virus program that kept disabling avast and blocking me from websites. This is the first time with MSE that I've been infected that I know of, besides the occasional tracking cookie.

Are you talking about Microsoft Security Essentials here?

Edit: NVM, ninja'd by DoctorOfSpace, I guess.

i used to use F-Secure, which was just one fascist program. It didn't let me do anything and it blocked many online games. Once i switched to Avast, i have never even considered changing to anything else. It's so good and easy to use. (also, it's free. biggrin )

Also, for MSE (or any other AV program), I would recommend getting an antispyware program (SUPERAntiSpyware is a great one) to catch the tracking cookies and whatever MSE doesn't catch. Plus MSE doesn't seem to detect tracking cookies anyway.

Seems to be the case with me and electronics.
