Trojan Egguard PrxySvrRST


Recommended Posts

So I was surfing the net and downloaded an iso mounting software which happened to have just one setup file, After I executed it a window not typical of an installation program opened which had about three buttons. After that a bunch of CMD windows opened and I powered off my modem right away and ran malwarebytes along with adw cleaner and hitman pro.


That seems to have taken care of most of all pups and trojans as well as the fishy processes and registry keys. The problem is that a single trojan egguard resgistry key keeps coming up each time I boot up my pc and run malwarebytes and it's called Egguard PrxySvrRST which it seems no matter what I do I can't get rid of it.

Why are you running in safe mode...?

I was trying to remove the egguard virus with malwarebytes anti rootkit tool, now it seems I have gotten rid of the persistent registry key.


Malwarebytes no longer shows the egguard registry key virus, adw cleaner and hitman pro show nothing anymore as well.

You can complete the following in safemode with NW....

Download attached fixlist.txt file (end of reply) and save it to the Desktop, or the folder you saved FRST into. "Do not open that file"
NOTE. It's important that both FRST and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

Open FRST and press the Fix button just once and wait.
The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt) or the folder it was ran from. Please post it to your reply.


Boot back to normal mode, continue:

Please open Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
  • On the Settings tab > Detection and Protection sub tab, Detection Options, tick the box "Scan for rootkits".
  • Under Non-Malware Protection sub tab Change PUP and PUM entries to Treat detections as Malware
  • Click on the Scan tab, then click on Scan Now >> . If an update is available, click the Update Now button.
  • A Threat Scan will begin.
  • When the Scan is complete Apply Actions to any found entries.
  • Wait for the prompt to restart the computer to appear (if applicable), then click on Yes.
  • After the restart once you are back at your desktop, open MBAM once more.

To get the log from Malwarebytes do the following:
  • Click on the History tab > Application Logs.

How is your system responding now, do you have any remaining issues or concerns...?

So far I no longer get any automatic opening of CMD windows, Malwarebytes along with ADW cleaner and hitam pro as well as windows malicious software removal tool show nothing anymore. I have done more scans now including rootkits and nothig pops up.

I watched the process names and inspected the "C:" drive and found no suspicious folders or anything, So far it's responding good. My only real concern apart from the egguard persistent registry key was something that looked like a miner in the processess list called "zminer" but has been removed in the process of the instructions I followed.

If anything else comes up within the week I'll post here again, Thanks a lot for the help!

Yes all remaining parts of the infection were shifted with FRST fix, other scans were to mop up any possible remnants, unless you have any other issues run the following to clean up:

Download "Delfix by Xplode" and save it to your desktop.

Or use the following if first link is down:

"Delfix link mirror"

If your security program alerts to Delfix either, accept the alert or turn your security off.

Double Click to start the program. If you are using Vista or higher, please right-click and choose run as administrator

Make Sure the following items are checked:

  • Remove disinfection tools <----- this will remove tools we have used.
  • Purge System Restore <--- this will remove all previous and possibly exploited restore points, a new point relative to system status at present will be created.
  • Reset system settings <--- this will reset any system settings back to default that were changed either by us during cleansing or malware/infection

Now click on "Run" and wait patiently until the tool has completed.

The tool will create a log when it has completed. We don't need you to post this.

Any remnant files/logs from tools we have used can be deleted…
