    Hello everybody,

    Recently scanned comp for viruses (Norton 2005), got alert: C:\win\mgrsts.exe - malware.downloader o_O Easily deleted, found 2 keys in the registry, deleted..

    Rebooted - there again ! This stuff really doesn't do anything so far, (scanned again, deleted), but have no clue what creates the son-of** :doubt:

    Uploaded for scan at - it claims this file is infected by Trojan.Pakes or Trojan.Downloader.Istbar. Previously i had Istbar, that's why i know how to get rid of it now, but no traces of real Istbar (no similar registry keys or files).

    If smbdy could help to trace what creates this mgrsts.exe file ..

    Thank you in advance.
