    I've been infected with this trojan, and can't find it anywhere on the net. I have AVG (new) which detects but cannot remove. I also am using spysweeper which finds the hijack and removes but the trojan just keeps running the file.....HELP!!! any info would be greatly appreciated....

    Hi

    Try running AVG and Spy Sweeper in Safemode , and see they can remove the trojan this way, you can also try some of the onlinescanners in my signature. :)
    Other things to try if this don't help, is to download trials of Ewido or TDS-3 and see if they will do the job. :)

    Dear RE77,
    It is called BKDR_Small.AE
    Do a online scan at http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
    then go to http://trendmicro.com
    subsection Virus Encyclopedia, type in "bkdr_small.ae"
    for quick search.
    Follow their instructions on how to remove this infection.
    Afterwards, install a firewall and AV. Update virus definitions
    Hope this helps

    An aside:
    When you want to see the different names that AV companies have given to the same infection, Virus Bulletin has a nice database:
    http://www.virusbtn.com/resources/vgrep/index.xml

    One limitation of this tool is that it relies on older databases, so a new threat does not show up immediately. Also, it it doesn't tell you how to remove the malware, but knowing the different names can make it easier to look up removal instructions on the sites of different AV companies.
