Possible Virus etc

Recommended Posts

I few days ago I noticed several unknown files had appeared on my D drive ( used mainly for data).

These consisted of a string of numbers and letters viz: 3590F75ABA9E485486C100C1A9D4FF06zzzzz..zzz.zz.rar.

I removed them all - about 1gb in total - and decided to backtrack to a previous restore point. On completion my Kaspersky Internet Security database was corrupted.

I did a repair and then updated the database and ran a full scan. No problems were found.

 

Today another similar file has appeared on my D drive again. Can anyone help?

 

I am using Windows 7 Home on my Acer desktop computer.

Hello......Have a look through this link where you will see the exact same file as yours.

 

3590F75ABA9E485486C100C1A9D4FF06ZZ.Z...Z....ZZZZ....read through and even though its been uploaded to virustotal

 

on at least 2 occasions ..about 5 months ago firstly and the last being 6 days ago .

 

Nothing conclusive has been found and in the link it disappeared by itself.

While Spywareterminator in itself is not on the list of incompatible with KAV,Clam antivirus is and this i understand comes

 

integrated with SPY/Term....So do you notice any problems like slowdown or similar even though thats not your question.

 

Anyway there is nothing conclusive in the link and they don't consider it a danger so it is possible it has something to do

 

with SpywareTerminator but i accept it could be another program you have installed....possible log files maybe.

 

I see nothing else untoward in your GSI but another member or moderator may spot something

Thanks for the help.

 

I do have slowdown issues which started when the rogue files appeared.

 

Should I uninstall SpywareTerminator?

Hi again.....Well if you do have slowdown problems certainly uninstall it as it will cause all kinds of conflicts.

 

Spyware Terminator includes:

 

Fast spyware scanning * 100% real-time protection * HIPS protection * Antivirus protection...so everything that KAV is doing.

Follow this to disable it and then remove from programs/features.............

Give it a few days and see if those strange files come back.

Hi,

 

Uninstalled SpywareTerminator but this hasn't solved the problem.

 

Already, several rogue files have appeared on my D drive in the last couple of hours.

Topic was moved to Virus section, since you were referred to this section.

 

Wrong log. Please attach the .zip. The .zip that contains the .xml and the htm.

I've discovered, by monitoring every program opened, that the files are created during a scan by CCleaner.

 

The settings were set to "wipe free space". This creates several files which, in my case, sit on my D drive.

They disappear after a few days.

 

So mystery solved.

 

Thanks for your help.
