nod32 found wsock32exe. using a lot of cpu resources

hi all.
i just noticed that wsock32 is using 25% of one core of my cpu. after checking in task manager it seems it was first on my pc 01/10/11.
ive heard of winsock. but this seem dodgy to me. nod32 picked it up so i let it get cleaned.

this is it....C:\Users\ryan\AppData\Local\Temp\ex1.exe -Win32/Delf.NVC trojan cleaned by deleting - quarantined [1]
after running nod i found that these 2 files r still there. its ok to delete these isnt it?? also is there anywhere else i should look to see if its hidden itself anywhere else.
cheers for any help folks.

edit i also came across these 7p. in appdata temp. could anyone tell me what they might be plz. any help is very much apreciated.. cheers folks

Hi, ganjiry.

In addition to 7p, there are other files with the September 10 date. I suggest that you download TFC to your desktop
  • Open the file and close any other windows.
  • It will close all programs itself when run, make sure to let it run uninterrupted.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. The program should not take long to finish its job
  • Once its finished it should reboot your machine, if not, do this yourself to ensure a complete clean


After restarting your computer, update NOD32 and run a full system scan.

Hi, ganjiry.

Here's more information about TFC:

TFC (Temp File Cleaner) will clear out all temp folders for all user accounts (temp, IE temp, java, FF, Opera, Chrome, Safari), including Administrator, All Users, LocalService, NetworkService, and any other accounts in the user folder. It also cleans out the %systemroot%\temp folder and checks for .tmp files in the %systemdrive% root folder, %systemroot%, and the system32 folder (both 32bit and 64bit on 64bit OSs). It shows the amount removed for each location found (in bytes) and the total removed (in MB).

Before running, it will stop Explorer and all other running applications. When finished, if a reboot is required the user must reboot to finish clearing any in-use temp files.
-- TFC only cleans temp folders.
-- TFC will not clean URL history, prefetch, or cookies. Depending on how often someone cleans their temp folders, their system hardware, and how many accounts are present, it can take anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or more. TFC will completely clear all temp files where other temp file cleaners may fail.

You're welcome, ganjiry.

Did TFC remove those entries and is everything back to normal?
