- TrojanSpy:MSIL/Banker.J – I can't get it off my pc
Help(?) Googling it it looks like a financial virus. I’ve used the microsoft virus checker on my pc- finds/quarantees it but the next morning when I’m tabbing through the keys I notice a new icon “My Document” which means I’ll try/its located and ‘cleaned’ again.
Is there anything else I can do? Nuke the PC?

Look for a registry entry at
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\OLEand delete it if it exists. This should stop it running on a reboot.
System restore to a point in time before the infection can sometimes be very effective (unless it’s infected those too).
Other than that, as said, Malwarebytes is your first line of defence. Save the log it creates.
Look for krk.txt in your Windows folder. Assume that any text contained within is in the hands of the author and act accordingly with regards to passwords and bank accounts.
Assuming you’ve removed it, you may need to reset your browser to remove proxy settings and home page redirects. Exact instructions vary by browser. IE: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923737Posted 4 years agogazza100Member
Cougar, would you recommend malwarebytes and does it run alongside Microsoft Security Essentials? I’ve been running MacAfee until yesterday but uninstalled it as the real time scan protection kept turning itself off for some reason. I then installed MSE but I’m unsure if it’s enough. I only use the laptop for university related work and general browsing. Any advice would be appreciated.Posted 4 years ago
Thanks chaps. When I use alt tab key to navigate the ‘My Document’ icon is still showing (but then the virus scanner hasn’t finished its scanning etc to clean.
See below- nothing stored in there is there?
