    Hi Affumicato,

    I am not an expert, but, they are around! I also had a padodor, my security wasn't sure if it was a trojan or virus, but, AVG now has it in its vault, so I don't know why it didn't work for you?

    I am sure someone here has some answers!

    Cheers!

    Here is something you could try.

    The process depends on the operating system:

    Windows ME

    1. Right click on the "My Computer" icon on the Windows desktop and click "Properties"
    2. Click on "Performance">"File system"
    3. Click "Troubleshooting"
    4. Check "Disable system restore"
    5. Click on OK, Close and restart the system

    Note: It is recommended to return to the standard behaviour of the system after the removal of the infected files - by unchecking the "Disable system restore"

    Windows XP

    1. Right click on the "My Computer" icon on the Windows desktop and click "Properties"
    2. Click on the "System Restore"
    3. Check "Turn off System Restore on all Drives"
    4. Click OK, Close and restart the system

    Note: It is recommended to return to the standard behaviour of the system after removal of the infected files - by unchecking the "Disable system restore"

    I had System Restore disabled for at least a month with this new hard drive, now I am wondering which came first - the enabling of system restore or the trojans?

    Do you think I should turn it back off and run a security scan again? I heard about them hiding in SR.

    Thanks!

    Marj,

    Give it a try. Can you delete that file you have in the virus vault?

    Hi Ronjor,

    I guess I can, it's AVG's vault. They aren't going to get out and spread all over, are they?

    Have to read instructions again and let ya know!

    Thanks!

    Marja:)

    I have the same problem. I scanned my hard drive with 2 antivirus programs:
    1) Norton Systemworks 2005
    2) Trend Micro's free online scan(antivirus.com)

    Norton doesnt even detect the virus. However, Trend Micro finds it and lists the following:

    virus: bkdr_padodor.gen
    scanresult: CanNotAccess
    file: c:\windows\system32\Idkibo32.dll

    I tried diabling my system restore as suggested above, however, it didn't help. the file is still there after running another scan. is there another way to get rid of this? can i just go ahead and delete the file or will it do an irreparable damage to the computer since it's a .dll file? i have windows XP, btw.

    help please!!

    thanks in advance.

    Did you try safe mode scanning?

    Symantec knows this virus. Instructions here.

    Good to hear. :)

    There are some great software programs at Wilders as well as information on how to keep your computer clean.

    Enjoy!
