The virus name are: c:\users\administrator\appdata\locallow\sun\java\deployment\cache\6.0\52\31bba1f4-34215e0a

I don't know where it comes from.. And I have no idea what to do really, I'm getting paniced..

According to Norton this is a High security threat.

Hello Puckot92

 

This looks like you are getting it from Java. I would go to control panel and hit java and empty out the temp files from there.

 

What operating system and service pack are you using? What is your year and version of NIS installed now? What version of Java do you have installed now?  I would suggest getting a fresh new install of Java even if you have the latest version installed.

 

You could also run a scan with the free version of Malwarebytes and post the log here when it is finished.

 

Download the free version, install and update then run a FULL scan. After the scan completes you should post the logs back to this thread.

You can find Malwarebytes here

http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/

It is a safer location to get the program from than malwarebytes themselves because some malware creators have large lists of sites that they block. Please be careful to down load the correct program ----the FREE version of MALWAREBYTES

(Thanks to Delph for providing the alternative site)

 

Please come back and let us know how you made out. Thanks.

Hi Puckot92:

 

You need to download the latest Java update from Sun Microsystems, and remove all older versions from your system.

Re: I get this Trojan Horse all the time..

floplot thanks for your reply.

I have emptied the Temp files and disabled temp files for Java.

I am using Vista and the Service pack are Service Pack 2.

I have the latest Java installed.

 

I will run the Malware bytes.

Here are the result:

Norton: No virus.

Malwarebytes:

After this I cleaned the Java Temp folder.

And I disabled Java from saving Temporary files on my PC.

Can this have solved the problem? Because if it can't save Temporary files, then I should'nt be able to get such kind of viruses, right? Because it can't be saved.

Also I wonder what may have caused this virus.. could it have been any website coded in Java?

Re: I get this Trojan Horse all the time..

I'm pretty sure that the problem are solved.

First I run NIS and it showed me that I had 1 Trojan Horse, the "Vmain Java Virus".

So I removed it with Norton.

After this I used Malwarebytes Antimalware and removed several virus which Norton did'nt detect.

After this I updated my Java and Cleaned the Temp folder and disabled Java from saving Temporary-files.

Then I run CCleaner and cleaned all cookies/history etc.. 

And I use Firefox so I added a couple of addons which block Java-scripted sites untill I allow them. "NoScript".

Also I removed all the old Java versions on the Firefox add-ons and just saved the current; "6.0.20".

I hope this have solved my problem, I will wait for another week and see the result.

Re: I get this Trojan Horse all the time..

Hello Puckot92

 

It sounds like you should be in good shape now. Remember to check Java and Adobe for updates frequently as those programs do update quite often for security reasons. Don't rely on automatic notices about newer versions. That can take several weeks before they get around to notifying you. Make it a habit to check those sites for updates along with any other programs that get updated. Also, make it a habit to run the free version of malwarebytes like once a week, the quick version is fine for that. It's a good on demand scanner to double check what Symantec might miss and also to clean up after what Symantec does fix. Be careful though when you use programs like Ccleaner. You really have to know what you are doing when you use registry cleaners. One wrong item removed and you could end up with a computer which you can't use again without reinstalling everything.

 

We'll be waiting to hear if your computer remains clean and that you have solved your problem.

Re: I get this Trojan Horse all the time..

Thanks for your reply again.

 

I will check for updates manually like you said and run Malwarebytes weekly.

Is there any other program you think might delete what Norton can't?

 

Yes we will have to wait 1 week.

I thank you for your help very much.

Re: I get this Trojan Horse all the time..

why does Rogue.RegTool display

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\RegTool (Rogue.RegTool) -> No action taken.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\RegTool (Rogue.RegTool) -> No action taken.


wouldn''t this be better ?

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\RegTool (Rogue.RegTool) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\RegTool (Rogue.RegTool) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
