Did spybot remove it? Your log looks clean. However, there is a much better "Free" application that should find and remove the cimuz trojan. I'm not convinced that spybot is finding it either...I'm more inclined to believe it is a false positive.

Let's try the free Ewido malware scanner:
Download Ewido anti-spyware to your desktop.
This is a 30 day free trial. At the end of the 30-day trial period the full version features (active guard, automatic updates...) will be deactivated and the program will become a feature-limited freeware version...You can still keep it and use it for "On Demand" scanning.
  • Double click the icon on the desktop to launch the set up program.
  • Select Change state to inactivate "Resident Shield" and "Automatic Updates". Right click on ewido in the system tray and uncheck "Start with Windows".
  • Once the setup is complete you will need to update the definition files.
  • On the main screen select the icon Update then select the Update now link.
  • Next select the Start Update button, the update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
  • Once the update has completed select the Scanner icon at the top of the screen, then select the Settings tab.
  • Once in the Settings screen click on Recommended actions and then select Quarantine.
  • Under Reports
  • Select Automatically generate report after every scan
  • Un-Select Only if threats were found

Close ewido anti-spyware.

Please boot into Safe mode:

Restart the computer and immediately begin tapping the F8 key (or F5 on some Dell machines).
Use the arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode and press the Enter key. Once in safe mode, continue with the instructions below:

  • Launch ewido anti-spyware by double-clicking the icon on your desktop.
  • Select the Scanner icon at the top, then the Scan tab then click on Complete System Scan.
  • ewido will now begin the scanning process, be patient this may take some time.
  • When prompted of an infection, please select Apply all actions

Once the scan is complete do the following:
  • Next select the Reports icon at the top.
  • Select the Save report as button in the lower left hand of the screen and save it to your Desktop.

Now close ewido anti-spyware.

Reboot back to your normal user mode and post the Ewido scan log. Please advise if you are having any other issues and how the computer is running now. Thanks!

Hi & thanks
I run Mozilla firefox & Ewido doesn't comply with that. Although there is a version that i have run that isn't as complex as the version that runs on IE. I downloaded that & all seemed ok.
So you think that it's a false find that Spybot is finding, like not a real trojan.

Firefox is a very good alternate browser to use and the truth is, I DO recommend it. However, it seems you have designated Firefox as your primary browser and I do NOT recommend that as a general rule. The reason I don't is really because from a public forum platform, one can never be sure who is reading the posts and what their level of expertise is.

When Firefox is designated the primary browser, the Windows Update Automatic download setting is voided in a sense. Folks who don't make a habit of checking for Windows Updates may run into problems if they designate Firefox as their primary browser.

If you clicked the Ewido download link I gave you, even if Firefox is your primary browser, it should simply have taken you to the Ewido download page. I suspect that what you did is clicked on the "Scan Now" link, and you're right, the on line scan (most of them in fact) is supported by Internet Explorer. However, if you go back to that page, you'll see in great big BOLD print, the words Free Download.... Then if you just scroll down a bit, you'll find the download link.

You should download and install the free Ewido scanner. It's a great stand alone scanner to use, even if you don't want to buy it you can still use it.

You didn't answer if Spybot removed any problems and I still need to see the Ewido scan log. Did that scan find anything?
