Please read the description of this Trojan

Would you rather risk someone else having access to your private data - Only you can decide

You obviously downloaded something (rootkit) that has taken over your main machine. If you want to continue with Data stealing/password stealing Trojan, you can.... too bad for anyone else that you have on your network (file sharing)

We used to call this 'Ruins' or 'Wareout'. You need to flush your DNS cash,
Open a command prompt....from the Start menu, select Run > In the box/"open field", enter cmd.exe
enter ipconfig /flushdns press 'enter

and


download HostsXpert 4.3 - Hosts File Manager.
  • Unzip HostsXpert 4.3 - Hosts File Manager to a convenient folder such as C:\HostsXpert
  • Click HostsXpert.exe to Run HostsXpert 4.3 - Hosts File Manager from its new home
  • Click "Make Hosts Writable?" in the upper right corner (If available).
  • Click Restore Microsoft's Hosts file and then click OK.
  • Click the X to exit the program.
  • Note: If you were using a custom Hosts file you will need to replace any of those entries yourself.

Dang trojans... Trojans aren't too difficult to get rid of, don't worry. At least it isn't conflicker.

I thought by doing a clean install all would be well. I have not picked up anything in almost 3 days. But to be extra sure I flushed the DNS and followed the Host file manager steps. Thanks for the help Jacee.
