    This is what I've got so far.

    I'm running windows XP. I know this trojan installs itself due to a vulnerability in IE, probably why I switched to FireFox a few months ago. So this has been here for a while.

    The trojans name is sokets de troje, it operates on port 5000. I did a full search on the web but found little to no information about this trojan. I was wondering about the best form of removal. Has anybody dealt with this sucker before? Any tips?

    Edit: oops, It's sokets de troje 1.0-1.1 just incase you needed the version.

    I should have added, I can't use "Find" to search for the offending .exe as for some reason, it's rendered it unusable. I get no search features on the search bar and the "edit" option on the menu bar cannot be clicked. Maybe something to do with the trojan, or possibly other virii.

    Download Adaware SE http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/
    The first step is updating your Ad-Aware SE. You can do this by going to the bottom right corner and clicking on the link that says "Check for Updates Now".
    Press "Continue" on the bottom right on your screen
    Next another pop-up will pop-up saying what type of update it is and what to do, press "Okay" and a download screen will come up downloading the update. Press "Finish" after the update is downloaded. Now select "Finish" then on the bvottom right of your Adaware screen click "Start".
    A new screen will pop-up and will say "Select a scan mode". You want to click "Use Custom Scanning Mode". Before you press "Start" on the bottom right click "Customize" right next to "Use Custom Scanning Mode".

    Select the following:

    In the General tab select:
    Keep it all the same

    In the Scanning tab select:
    Under Drivers Folders and Files-select Scan within archives
    Under Memory and Registry select all that is underneath it!
    Make sure your harddrive is selected when you press "Select Drives and Folders to scan"

    In the Advanced tab select:
    Make sure you have everything under the "Logfile Detail Level" selected.
    (This makes it easier for people from Lavasoft forums see what options you have selected)

    In the Startup, Defaults, and Interface tab select nothing.


    In the Tweak tab select:
    You may not be able to select certain things in the tweak tab, but do not be alarmed.
    Under scanning engine select:
    "Unload recognized processes during scanning"
    "Scan registry for all users instead of current users only"
    Under Cleaning Engine select:
    "Always try to unload modules before deletion"
    "During removal unload Explorer and IE if necessary"
    "Let Windows remove files in use at next boot"
    "Delete Quarantined objects after restoring"
    Under log files:
    "Include Basic Ad-Aware settings in log file"
    "Include additional Ad-Aware settings in log file"
    "Include reference summary in log file"
    "Include used command line parameters in log file"
    All of the other links are just fine.

    Press "Proceed" to save the settings


    Press "Next" on the bottom right hand corner.
    Ad-Aware SE will scan your computer for possible spyware threats or anything that you have on your computer that maybe spyware.
    Then click ”Next “ to remove any objects found_

    ______________________________________________________________
    Create a folder on your hard drive somewhere like in "My Documents" and name it Hijackthis
    Download 'Hijack This to its own folder http://www.dotcomsecurity.org/downloads/HijackThis.exe
    Doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log, load it in Notepad, and copy its contents here. [​IMG]

    Most of what it lists
    will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.
