Trojan.Agent/Gen-Uphov-A

Recommended Posts

hi folks,

Yesterday when I ran SAS it picked up this Trojan-see subject. I had SAS quarantine it and restarted computer. However I started getting messages saying essentially start up couldn't happen because of missing files. I kept clicking on the error message until it stayed away and the computer booted up fine. For every program I tried to start I got the same error message about missing files and when I clicked on error message, the program would start just fine.

The scan by SAS found Trojan.Agent/Gen-Uphov-A in two files-weirdly identical. E:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSMUFXFYQWH.DLL. When I ok'ed quarantining, SAS said it was removing and quarantining these two files 1. PID[23114856]E:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSMUFXFYQWH.DLL and

2. E:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSMUFXFYQWH.DLL

and would require restart of system.

After the problems of error messages and interference with startup of software, I reinstalled two files and had no trouble with startups. I scanned the computer with Spybot and it showed clear, then I ran MBAM and it picked up a different trojan and removed it easily. When I rescanned with SAS last night, it didn't find anything. This morning the scan once again showed this same trojan.

This seems similar to a post I read on Gen-Uophov-B. Is this the same trojan, how do I remove it, if it is a trojan, without disrupting start up of OS and any other software?

thanks for any advice you can give,
