    Dxsetu.exe

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Little help please

    I also have the dxsetu.exe trojan/virus that is doing the rounds. I have read the other threads relating and have tried the various methods to remove, but I keep getting it back.

    I can't find the c:\windows\dxsetu.exe or the other files that relate to this problem. I believe I got the trojan from Football Manager 2005 no cd crack.exe I got an immediate message from norton internet security saying ope6.exe was a security risk, so I bloked the access. I found the files and deleted them, and since then I've had this dxsetu.exe problem.

    Another strange thing is that when I try to do a search with windows explorer I keep getting a blank dialog box come up, I have to hit ok and then nothing happens (as far as searching). Hence the reason I can't trake down the various files I need to find and delete.

    Also getting a load of $$$$$$.bat files all over the place that start and stop various services.

    Mod Note ~Removed Hijackthis log. Please see my reply below - snap~

    Thanks in advance :)

    Hi lummy, and welcome to Wilders.

    I am afraid we no longer allow the posting of unsolicited HijackThis logs as per our Posting Policy stated in this Announcement. However, you will find a link in the Announcement Post to several other sites that still do provide HijackThis log analysis service.

    Whichever site you decide to go to, please be sure and follow their posting policy before you post your hijackthis log.

    Regards,

    I think the issue you are having is more Trojan/virus related than Browser Hijack, thus if you follow the link to General Cleaning I think you should be able to have your system back to normal pretty quickly...

    Hope this helps...

    Cheers :D
