    hi Everyone!

    Everytime I turn on my PC and do a scan, I will detect a Downloader.Agent.apj file. I think there must be a malware that infected my start up process. How can I remedy this? Hope that some experts can kindly advise.

    Thank you for your kind advice.

    Always new file name. (dll files)

    There is once the computer was turn on, didn't do any scan. Turned off and Turn on again. Then do a scan. 2 Downloader.Agent.apj files were detected. Both different names.

    Btw, some eg.s of the files are:

    cbij.dll
    jehe.dll
    gdjf.dll
    hdjj.dll

    all in C:\WINDOWS\system32

    Previously, I was using both Ewido and Trend Micro PC-cillin.
    Now Ewido and Panda Internet Security.

    After many scans, offline and online, still not able to remedy it.
    Also tried to scan on safe mode. But nothing detected.

    Thanks.

    Recently, tried also to scan using bitdefender online scan, and a-square anti-malware (trial). still cannot solve the problem.

    everytime I start my computer and do a scan, a new Downloader.Agent.apj (of a new .dll file name) will be detected.

    I wonder how I can catch hold of which start up process that is infected with a malware that creates all these .dll downloaders.

    Sincerely hope that our fellow experts here will give some advice.

    Thank you very much for your kind attention...

    Best Wishes...

    hi Everyone,

    Thank you so much for your kind assistance for the past few days.

    I came across Dr.Web website by chance and used the Dr.Web scan on my PC. And to my relief, it (hopefully it does) cures the problem.

    Now when I do a scn after I start up my PC, I no longer detect any newly generated Trojan.Downloader.Agent.

    Thank you.

    Hi Ksh,

    I've just noticed your thread here:-

    http://forum.emsisoft.com/Default.aspx?g=posts&t=1321

    This was a rather interesting case because some of the better AVs (such as Kaspersky, NOD and BitDefender) found nothing wrong with your infected file (though AntiVir and AVG got it!) and your HighJackThis log looked clean.

    Although A2 and ewido found the .dll file they couldn't remedy the problem - so using Dr Web in this case has saved a lot of bother!

    Thanks for sharing the info with us. ;)
