Hi,

A week or so ago everytime I would start my computer I would find 3-5 infected items by trojan.download.swizz, so I would quarantine them, and then delete them. The virus seems to only effect .exe files! I have norton 2002 I believe, and It won't find the virus, or the infected one's when I fun a full system scan, yet it finds the infected files when I start my computer! I ran the norton full scan one day and it found 188 infected files, but after that it has found nothing, until I reastart my comp that is! I ran a free online scan and found a virus named dluca.exe and I was wondering if the two have any relation, I went to find files/folders, fouund it and deleted it, and was wondering if that meant the dluca virus was gone now! Basically I want to know how to get rid of the trojan.download.swizz virus.

Thanks for your time,


Jenn

download.swizz is norton's pet name for the LOP parasite

then safest & easiest way to remove it is:

download AdAware 6 181
Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the

"webupdate".

Then ........

Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"
From main window :Click "Start" then " Activate in-depth scan"

then......

click "Use custom scanning options>Customize" and have these options on: "Scan within

archives" ,"Scan active processes","Scan registry", "Deep scan registry" ,"Scan my IE Favorites for

banned URL" and "Scan my host-files"

then.........

go to settings(the gear on top of AdAware)>Tweak>Scanning engine and tick "Unload recognized

processes during scanning" ...........then........"Cleaning engine" and tick "Automaticly try to

unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

then...... click "proceed" to save your settings.

Now to scan it´s just to click the "Scan" button.

When scan is finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it.

Jenn, per Derek, use AdAware scan. If you wish; post your HJT log after cleaning with AdAware.
