something is wrong with the malware.

Recommended Posts

one day i inserted the USB onto my pc. i got infected by the sguza.exe malware. it added the mrpky.exe on my application data. i was able to manually remove the malware with one site showing the removal instruction. i used sysinternals process explorer to terminate and delete the following files in each directory:



C:documents and settings/(my username)/application data/mrpky.exe

I then made a search and delete on the registry for sguza,autorun (the one on my F drive )and mrpky. however the mrpky registry key came back every time i deleted it. i then made a restart and re inserted my USB and the malware did not came back. when i checked the application data the mrpky.exe file is gone but here is its registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\taskman

the taskman has a value of the location of the mrpky.exe which is in my application data but the mrpky.exe did not recreate itself. i have not encountered any strange problems on the next 10 days. i was now on a holiday and the computer that has the mrpky.exe registry key is still on my home.

will the registry key for the taskman do any harm on my computer?
