Install threat fire which will enhance your antivirus protectionKeenvalAll Trojan horses are hidden files so you would need to go to the Files Option (click the View tab)at Control Panel and uncheck both the *Hide file extension for known file types & *Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)-boxes, then OK yourself out. You will then need to restart your computer and go into SafeMode by HOLDING the F8 key DOWN -(at bootup - after the first screen info - be quick!). [You have to use your keyboard when you're in SafeMode - the keys to use are Ctrl/Alt/Delete (to exit the Help and Support screen) - Tab/Arrow keys/ Pageup/Pagedown/ the Window key(between Ctrl & Alt) & Enter]
So, from the DeskTop screen press the Window key to get Start/ arrow up to Search/ arrow right to For Files or Folders and type up the NAME OF THE FILE & EXT (not downloader.Keennval.B) but the actual name of the file, which would have shown up on your anti-virus software. To delete this file from here just press Page Up to highlight the file and then delete. To get out of Search -Alt F/ arrow down to Close and press Enter.
It will be safe to empty your Recycle Bin in the Normal mode where you can use your mouse.
I have had 4 Trojan horses on my C drive and kinda figured out the above method a week ago. I deleted the Temp file (as these keep putting the same files back into your system) from the _Restore folder after unchecking the hidden files boxes, then went to SafeMode to delete what virus files that were still there. My computer is now absolutely FREE of these pests!
PS. I also have AVG 6.0 (the free one) & also the Ad-aware 6 and I use them every day as my kids love to play games from the internet.
Here is more input:
How do I get rid of this Virus?
Your "up to date" antivirus will remove it.
just run a antivirus scan.
Found a reference worth looking into: bandofgonzos.com
The spyware program 'PestPatrol' will remove it.
I think that some more info is needed like what operating system you use, have you tried to do it from a bootscan, what virus detection system do you have before this can be answered.
I had this virus and Panda online scanner removed it! pandasoftware.com
