keygen.exe Alert

Recommended Posts


I received an alert from Superantispyware that there was a keygen.exe that needed to be deleted from my machine. This was received after I ran Malwarebytes. My mother has had this machine approximately two weeks. We bought is as an extra machine for others in the residence. The nonprofit that sold the computer to us assured us that the unit had been reformatted and loaded with a copy of WinXP Pro. I rather doubt that since I've found too many other things on the computer like copies of IObit etc. In any case your help in making sure that this unit is clean would be greatly appreciated

Here is a Malwarbytes scan and a DDS scan:

There was no a Detected Threads report. Scan was clean.

Automatic Scan: completed 7 minutes ago (events: 156246, objects: 156851, time: 01:37:05)

7/26/2012 6:40:00 PM Task completed

Scan was 17 MB. I could not attach and upload. If you like I can cut and paste the whole thing.

It is working fine. I have run additional online scans and have not picked up anything. It does take a little time to load after logging in, approxiamately 4-5 minutes on completion, but once it loads it runs fine. I can use it before that--towards the back end--but it is more stable if I wait until it completes loading and before I click on say, IE. Unfortunately, I can't gage loading since I upgraded the RAM substantially and didn't find out about the Trojan until after upgrading.

However, XP loads lower than 7, therefore as long as you do not think that it is not a malware related issue then this will be fine.

Ok, lets try this again, because I do not wake up before 10:00 am.

There is a typo in the last sentence. It should have been written: "However, XP loads slower than 7, therefore as long as you do not think that it is a malware related issue, her unit is running great.

Thanks a lot for your help. I learn a lot from working with you guys. I hope to donate something in the future and will certainly consider becoming a paying customer. However, most of the people that I work with are underprivileged therefore it is difficult to justify the cost. It is getting to the point that i may have to.or consider a Linux distro. I will make a decision before the fall on which path we will follow.

Best regards,
