Is this the one you're looking for?

Malwarebytes.org

To know the info on a specific malware/trojan, just click on any name listed.

For a little additional information, everyone should download and use the free malwarebytes. An Anti Virus, Malwarebytes and a good firewall should be used for maximum protection from the problems that lurk out there.

Yes that is what I was looking for but it didn't have the one listed that I was curious about. I was looking for some info on TrojanFormatc-e. I just had a bout with it. Nasty! Nasty!

Does anyone have any other links to other sites with more malware links? Malwarebytes is good and I have found a few other small ones just searching through Google, but I wouldn't mind finding some other lists out there for testing purposes. If you don't want to post the links, you could PM me if you don't mind. Thanks!

Bingo

That's it. Many Thanks. MSE somehow missed that. I loaded Avast after about two days of pounding the keyboard and it found it. Destroys the OS, loads itself on another disk so when you get repaired. It's waiting on you.

No probs. Glad to help you. MSE missed that? By looking at the virus infection info, the overall risk is CRITICAL. That's one nasty son of a ?!*^%. And Avast found it. Hmmmmm....

Yes Nasty!

I'll add this. It was inside a .exe file that had a small daisy like icon. It hid itself in a directory that had an installation file for a PDF printer Zipped up. The name of the .exe was vue~~somthing.exe.
