Threat Details:

Categories:
• malware

Description:
MSCheck copies itself into the system directory of the operating system and tries to connect to the internet. When it is connected it waits for new orders to harm the computer. The trojan often is spread by a website offering free-games. These free games often not work, but the trojan does! MSCheck disguises as "mscheck" (usually used by Windows) to be run at systemstart and eats up system resources.

Please use Spybot-S&D, RunAlyzer or msconfig.exe to remove the following autorun entries.
