» Your Windows may have been infected by viruses, which is a complicated case. It is not easy to get rid of this kind of viruses, including TrojanSpy:Win32/Banker.ND.

EXE files allow users to launch programs without needing additional software on the user's computer special software. The exe file is one of the most useful types of files precisely because it runs programs; however, it can be used as a delivery system for viruses or other malicious programs. Viruses often reside to .exe files, which are then re-named to resemble common software packages. They can be running in the background, infecting or compromising the computer. It is very important to scan an EXE file before opening it, and you should never open an EXE file if you don't know or trust its source.

You are not supposed to become a wizard to fix any of these problems. What you need to know is where to start. Download DLL Suite, install and run > Click Dashboard menu and > Click Scan DLL Errors button > Click Fix DLL Errors button after the scan. And all the problems directly associated with .exe files are fixed, because of the built-in feature of Fix EXE Virus in the Dashboard menu.

After check marks have been placed in the respective box for the entries, click on "Fix selected". Confirm all prompts to delete the entries. Next, download, update and choose a quick scan with Malwarebytes. After the scan completes, choose to remove anything found. A log file will be created. Please copy and post the log file in your reply.

    F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe regsvr.exe the primary culprit.

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {5C255C8A-E604-49b4-9D64-90988571CECB} - (no file)
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Msn Messsenger] C:\WINDOWS\system32\regsvr.exe
    O4 - Startup: CA1A45.lnk = C:\WINDOWS\system32\C04B75\CA1A45.EXE
    O7 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System, DisableRegedit=1

    Also, you do not have an active antivirus software program. I would highly recommend you install one after you have completed the above steps. Additionally, you need to upgrade your service pack to service pack 3.

RICHARD CHAMBERS replied on January 8, 2013: » Regsvr.exe, also known as the new folder.exe virus, is a component of several Trojans and worms such as WebMoney-G Trojan, Worm_Delf.FKZ and W32.Imaut that are spread through removable storage devices. The worms typically create an autorun.inf file for automatic execution, random folders and a registry entry to enable its automatic execution upon system startup, in addition to scheduling a task for automatic launch at specific dates and times.

  3. JOHN COMPTON replied on January 9, 2013: » I did take a quick look at your log however and did not immediately detect anything suspicious. This is not conclusive however. I also noticed you are downloading torrents. Those are rarely malware free. Download, update and perform a quick scan with Hit Malware. If you already have Hit Malware installed simply make sure you update it prior to scanning.
