Threat Details:


This Trojan installs itself without user consent and starts itself at Systemstartup. Its files are named so that they can be confused with legit Windowsfiles.
Removal Instructions:


Please use Windows Explorer or another file manager of your choice to locate and delete these files.

The file at "<$STARTUP>\rundllw.exe".
The file at "<$WINDIR>\dllreg.exe".
The file at "<$WINDIR>\rundllx.sys".
The file at "<$WINDIR>\sock64.dll".
The file at "<$SYSDIR>\load32.exe".
The file at "<$SYSDIR>\vxdmgr32.exe".
Make sure you set your file manager to display hidden and system files. If Banker.R uses rootkit technologies, use our RootAlyzer (http://forums.spybot.info/downloads.php?id=8) or our Total Commander anti-rootkit plugins (http://forums.spybot.info/downloads.php?id=3).
You will have to use a global search for files without a name specified. Be extra careful, because just the name might not be enough to identify files!

Important: There are more files that cannot be safely described in simple words. Please use Spybot-S&D (http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?page=spybotsd) to remove them.
