    It had a couple of weeks to kick around in my system before ESET NOD32 found it lurking in an executable I had run (better late than nevero_O). Since then I've had a lot of computer instability, but there are numerous other possible causes (move to a larger drive, new 3rd party VGA cooler, etc.).

    The hardware changes just happened to coincide with using this executable. I moved to a larger drive and immediately used the new executable. My older drive (not infected) works just fine.

    Does this trojan cause more and more instability as it eats its way into your system? Those are the symptoms I'm experiencing.

    (P.S. ESET threat glossary seems to be down...)

    Hello Ladyhawk_LH,

    To get down to the bottom of weather or not it's an infection causing the problems or a hardware issue, please submit a support case to customer care with the ESET software and attach a SysInspector file to the support case. That way they can analyze your system and possibly eliminate any infections you may have.
