Operating system: Windows 2000
Virus scanner: AVG free edition
Problem: Scanning shows infection with a Trojan

Whenever I scan with my virusscanner, AVG free edition, I encounter the following infections with Trojan horses:

- Trojan horse Downloader.Generic2.FTK
- Trojan horse Downloader.Generic2.EYP
- Trojan horse Downloader.Generic3.EPD

Whenever I tell my scanner to heal/remove said files the problem seems to be fixed. However, whenever I restart the pc the infection(s) return(s) from time to time. Clearly more actions are needed to remove the true source of the problem.

I hope that the information displayed by me is enough. If this is not the case could someone please tell me what more is needed?

Any help on how to get rid of this problem would be greatly appreciated. Much obliged in advance :)

Hi, Welcome to TSG!!

Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.

Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Look in your control panel add/remove programs for PuritySCAN By OIN, OuterInfo, Snowballwars by OIN or similar , click on it and click remove.

REBOOT afterwards!!

If not listed, download and run this uninstaller:
http://www.outerinfo.com/OiUninstaller.exe


Download Ewido anti-spyware from HERE and save that file to your desktop.

This is a 30 day trial of the program
  1. Once you have downloaded ewido anti-spyware, locate the icon on the desktop and double-click it to launch the set up program.
  2. Once the setup is complete you will need run ewido and update the definition files.
  3. On the main screen select the icon "Update" then select the "Update now" link.
    • Next select the "Start Update" button, the update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
  4. Once the update has completed select the "Scanner" icon at the top of the screen, then select the "Settings" tab.
  5. Once in the Settings screen click on "Recommended actions" and then select "Quarantine".
  6. Under "Reports"
    • Select "Automatically generate report after every scan"
    • Un-Select "Only if threats were found"
Close ewido anti-spyware, Do Not run a scan just yet, we will shortly.
  1. Reboot your computer into SafeMode. You can do this by restarting your computer and continually tapping the F8 key until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight SafeMode then hit enter.
    IMPORTANT: Do not open any other windows or programs while ewido is scanning, it may interfere with the scanning proccess:
  2. Lauch ewido-anti-spyware by double-clicking the icon on your desktop.
  3. Select the "Scanner" icon at the top and then the "Scan" tab then click on "Complete System Scan".
  4. ewido will now begin the scanning process, be patient this may take a little time.
    Once the scan is complete do the following:
  5. If you have any infections you will prompted, then select "Apply all actions"
  6. Next select the "Reports" icon at the top.
  7. Select the "Save report as" button in the lower left hand of the screen and save it to a text file on your system (make sure to remember where you saved that file, this is important).
  8. Close ewido and reboot your system back into Normal Mode and post the results of the ewido report scan.


Post a new HijackThis log and the log from Ewido.
