    Hi,
    I had cool.exe which I managed to get rid of and now have a Trojan dialler.CCA which just keep coming back. AVG reports it and Ewido finds it and deletes it but it keeps popping back about every 10min or so. I am a day or so away from a reformat its so annoying.

    I did a scan whilst in safe mode but Ewido didn't find it. I rebooted and there is was again.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have attached a hijackthis log file in case it helps.

    Thank you

    David Williams

    Hi David,

    did you execute a complete system scan in safe mode?

    Hi,
    Sorry about the HJT log.

    Yes I carried out a full system scan in safe mode and nothing was found. I am currently working my way through a list of instructions that involve AVG and Panda scans. I am hopeful that this will provide a solution. If it does I will post the instructions on this board for other users. If not - I'll be back, as they say.

    Thank you

    David

    Huh? Nothing was found? I thought ewido reported this Dialer. If not ewido reported the dialer I don't think that ewido will find it in safe mode. Or if ewido find the file before and it is now not found anymore than it is more likely that ewido has eliminated that threat.

    However I hope you will get rid of it.

    Regards,
    Vinzenz

    Hi
    AVG gets it and quarantines it but it keeps coming back. If I dont let AVG handle it then Ewido does find it, quarantines it but it still returns. It's a bitch this one!

    when you scanned this file in safe mode did you first take off system restore?
    if not System restore might be putting the file back and that is why none of the programs can remove them for good.
