I have heard of this new back door virus, but it didn't show up until I downloaded the patch (patch.exe) apparently from Microsoft. my Norton's anti virus live update had expired so i bought McAfee. When i removed the Norton's all of the viruses i had Quarantined were deleted along with it.


Now my big problem is when i removed Norton's and these viruses it took one of my windows files with it. The file vxdmgr.exe.

The full extension of this file is Windows\Systems32\vxdmgr32.exe


If you have any information on obtaining this file either through a web site, or if you can find it e-mail me with it.

I have checked all of my windows disks, and have been searching the net for 4 days now.

If you can help me, please do. THANKS

Windows\Systems32\vxdmgr32.exe is NOT a valid file!!! It's part of a virus. If you deleted it, trust me, you DON'T want it back.

Let's see what else may be lurking there.

Go to http://tomcoyote.org/hjt/ and download HiJackThis. Use Winzip to ]u]unzip[/u] it, then install and run it. To run, click the “Scan” button. When it's done the "Scan" button changes to "Save Log". Save the log file it creates (it should open in Notepad at that point). Copy and paste the results in your next post. IF you happen to be using a proxy server, please mention it in your post. Most of what it finds is harmless, so do not do anything yet. Someone will be glad to help you sort out any of the baddies that may be in there.
