  1. I'm still seeing the modified .ini entry for Explorer pointing to netdc.exe on Hijackthis! logs everywhere.I'm really curious about this one.Has anyone ever found a solution that works?

    Remember,newbies have to be able to understand it,so any complicated registry modifications are out...so is unhiding the damn thing via commandline I guess.

    I'm not refering to Dumaru nor any of the Trojans and viruses that add netdc.exe plus others as part of their payload.This one is a lone entry-netdc.exe..

    Any thoughts?

    I did a search. Have you seen this?

    "What you need to do also in safe mode is removing the hidden startup entry 'netdc.exe'(Start\Run\All Programs\Startup).

    Thanks..I just tried the link,but cannot connect to unicyclist.com.My browser doesn't permit redirects,but thanks for trying.

    All the searches I do on this one seem to be dead ends.

    That was helpful in that I now realise netdc.exe is the residue of a previous,improperly cleaned virus/trojan.

    So,essentially,a crash course in registry editing and commandline trouble-shooting is still the order of the day.Poor things!

    Thanks for that Ronjor.It's amazing how the more things change,the more they stay the same.
