    I would first like to say this is a nasty little thing to have. Like the spawn of something evil.

    As some of you may know it has some "neato" a/v features. It terminates TDS and Nortons AV before the window appears. My only hope seems to be some other trojan remover. Trojan Remover finds it, but it just reinstalls itself at the next startup. I want to seriously avoid a reformat but its looking like I will have to. If any of you have any help with this it would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi alu!

    I'd suggest renaming tds-3.exe to something else like test.exe... normally this baddies scan for the executable name and then terminate it.

    With this trick you should have a chance to run a full TDS Scan and kick ProRat's filthy butt :D

    If you need more assistance I'd suggest visting the DiamondCS forum right here on wilders!

    Good luck!
