Hi All

it from.
Thanks Gaz

Can you please be MORE specific on what you have and why you think you have a
"virus".

Re: Re Sopidkc.exe

Hi
   I did some virus scans and this came up, it's in System32 and whenever
it's deleted it just keeps coming back, I Googled it and found many
references but have not been able to removed it. I hides in many programs,
stops windows update, disables restore, stopped a lot of programs working eg
MPC, email backup etc.

You said...
"I did some virus scans and this came up..."

OK, what "virus scan" and what EXACTLY did they report ?
Log excerpts would be helpful.

I call those appz suckerware, where they ostensibly find loads of
problems, offer to fix a small percentage free, and want bucks to fix
the rest.

You are so misinformed!
They don't charge anything and their free editions scan and fix just as
thoroughly as their paid versions.
WAKE UP  and get off the sauce.  :)
PS: One of the main differences in the paid and free versions is that the
free versions are on-demand only while their free versions are real-time, if
you set them that way. There are some other benefits for the paid versions,
but detection and removal are the same for both.

First off - Fuck You, you ignorant shit!
I wasn't referring to SAS nor MBAM, two excellent programs, but instead
the type I mentioned where they do as I indicated and offer to fix
'some' of many indicated problems. Problems I might add that other
malware detectors generally don't consider such.
Just curious: Why the hostile tone right off the bat?
It only demeans your credibility and might discourage someone from the
two best applications going for detection and remediation of today's
type of malware, MBAM & SAS.

| 1) SuperAntiSpyware----  SuperAntiSpyware.com     (also referred to as
|  SAS  )
| 2)MalwareBytes Anti-Malware----  Malwarebytes.org  (also referred to as
| MBAM)

| They are highly recommended in Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware newsgroups.
| DL, install, update and then run each one by itself.
| NO, they do not charge you to fix any problems they may find.

SAS and MBAM are NOT anto virus and if this is a Virut -- NEITHER will clean
Virut
infected file.

Re: Re Sopidkc.exe

Hi
   I managed to find full versions of these programs, but if they won't
clean a "virut" I won't try them.
What would you suggest, I'm just in the middle of trying the procedure from
your claymania link, but it's taken 24 hours for stinger to scan all my
files, I'll finish both procedures and report back.
As a low risk virus I'm surprised how hard it is to detect and remove, (for
good).
I'll buy the program that fixes it if there is one, but I have lost all
faith in these programs and there claims.

The chances are you will have to wipe the PC and reinstall the OS from scratch.

However you can try removing the hard disk from the affected computer and
placing it in/on
a surrogate PC.

Then use the McAfee module of my Multi AV Scanning Tool and use McAfee to scan
the
affected drive in/on that surrogate PC.

Re: Re Sopidkc.exe

Hi
    I'll give that a go, I want to try everything in case I get it again as
I don't know where it came from in the first place. I'm buying a new puter
this weekend so I'll wipe the old one after I get it going.

Realize that if it is a virut virus, as a virus, it infects other EXE (DLL ?)
files and
thus you need to make sure ALL Read/Write media is scanned and/or cleaned.

That's what I did when I had the same problem. However, in retrospect,
I wonder if a repair-install would have been a faster yet satisfactory
solution. If I recall correctly, I used the Avira Rescue CD...

http://www.free-av.de/en/tools/12/avira_antivir_rescue_system.html

...to detect and delete the infected files and was still able to boot
into Windows afterwards, just not do much useful with it. Too bad I
forgot to back up the drivers with DoubleDriver while I still could.

What virus? "This" virus could be anything.

Oh, maybe you mean the file referenced in the Subject. If so, google it.

No, wrong again (as usual).

There is a difference between viruses and spy/adware.
(and spywarewarrior has only (very) dated information.)
