    I have Kaspersky Antivirus but it couldn't detect the trojan with the the title up there. I will start with the sympthoms:

    • a red screen with a crap reddish logo with circles with 'privacy danger' covering the desktop, can be moved to the corner of the desktop so as your desktop to be revealed, then by deleting the created by the trojan folder c:\Windows\privacy_danger\ the crap disappears but after some time it reappears with the screen and has to be deleted again and again.
    • System Alert: a Windows message about an impact viruses may have on your pc
    • red triangle windows message in the taskbar
    • a warning message with red (X) sign: Windows has detected an Internet attack attempt... Somebody's trying to infect your PC with spyware or harmful viruses. Run full system scab bow to protect your PC from Internet atatcks, hijacking attempts and spyware! Click here to download spyware reniver for total protection. [OK]
    • A message: Trojan.W32.Looksky detected on your machine. The virus is distributed via the Internet through e-mails and Active X objects. The worm has its own SMTP engine which means it gathers e-mails from your local computer and re-distributes itself. In worst cases this worm can allow attackers to access your computer stealing passwords and personal data.
    This process should be removed from your system.

    Type: Virus
    Systems Affected: Windows 2000, NT, ME, XP, Vista
    Security Risk (0-5): 5
    Click 'Yes' to remove it from your PC immediately

    • the home page of IE changed to http://ucleaner.com/main.php?wmid=6010&mid=MjI6Ojg5main.php?wmid=6010&mid=MjI6Ojg5 or drivecleaner or this http://softwarereferral.com/jump.php?wmid=6010&mid=MjI6Ojg5&lid=2 http://onlinesecurityworld.com/shandler.php?sg=2 don't click them, they may create icons on the desktop or push you to dl the crap programs.

    • icons on the desktop as a result of the upper links: Spyware&Malware Protection, Privacy Protector, Error Cleaner unwated and useless, just links to download those stupid programs below:

    Note: The so called 'ultimate cleaner' as well as 'drive cleaner', also the WinAntiVirus Pro appearing as pop ups from the warning messages are nothing but crap. Not only they do nothing but keep on asking for registration. There is no ordinary program that forces you to use the program and to buy it or register, as the pop-ups, the unchangeable home page and the appearing icons on the desktop are that. Not to say that such forcing to use programs should rather make you not use them, so that the creators rethink their approach to attracting customers. Do not use these programs, they may harm your PC, not help. They are a junk, you can burn them, throw them, bury them, erase them from the world. SAS, that is a good and trusted program unlike those up even detect malware exactly with source - the mentioned programs up there.

    This is not just an info thread, I need help. I found this forum looking for the trojan and thx to this forum I found the first program to detect the trojans - SUPERAntispyware (SAS). Before that I tried all the three mentioned up, also paretologic anti-spyware which could detect some but never found anything entitled 'Trojan' while SAS did it. There were some malware files (20), entitled 'Trojan' and after removing them with SAS and rebooting, I thought everything was ok - in the 1st minute no sign of it. However, my homepage still was something else, if I want to change it, then it changes back to the mentioned up hompage url and SAS asks me if I shoud allow or block the change of my attempt to add my homepage with the automatically set crap of this crap ultimate cleaner. Then the same sympthons appeared, the same messages, SAS cleaned something finally, but obviously not the main parasite. Should I expect the name of this trojan w32 found because SAS cannot find it, it found some others, I cleaned them but this still remains, I use win XP pro. I have had problems with prolly other types in the past and the best sign for a removal of a trojan is seeing the homepage stays as I set it each time I start IE. Pls help with erasing this trojan, its creator must burn in flames together with his sh** creation.
