I have 3 backdoor trojan virus on my ME System in quarantine and I would like to know how to get rid of these nasty things. I think I need the files. the 3 are: OLDER,exe Location:, windows #2 Explorer.exe Location:, C;windows\explorer\ and, #3 explorer[1].exe location: c:windows\tempory. Please make the explanation simple as I am a novice and an old one at that. Thanks in advance. ( I have Norton Anti Virus and Zone Alarm installed now. )

Hello Savvylady and Rollin'Rog:


Thanks for your replys: Savvylady: I got the three back door virus by running Norotn Anti-Virus Progrom. ( Please see my original post) ( Named them them, that is) Rolling'Rog: I don't understand how I can be operating Windows Exployer with them guys in quarantine either. Should I delete them ? What happens then? Will My system work? I understand I'm limited in words to express my frustration and am confident that you two will see me through this mess. Thanks to both of you. Jim

Your file location:

#2 Explorer.exe Location:, C;windows\explorer\

seems to indicate there is a FOLDER explorer in the Windows directory with an infected explorer.exe within it.

If this is the case AND there is an uninfected copy of explorer.exe in c:\windows

then it is ok to delete the infected one. But you should verify that you have a copy of Explorer.exe (approx 168kb) in C:\windows that is not quarantined or infected.

You can do a Search (Find) for all copies of explorer.exe and verify which is which.

To Savvylady and Rollin'Rog:

I very much appreciate your continued interest in my problem and your answers to my inquires. Some of your answers are over my head and I would like overnight to try Rollin'Rog's suggestion on i.d.'g the files in search. By the way, Rog. I have done a system restore and that worked great but I want the darn things off my machine. By the way, I will not make the mistake again of downloading a program without scanning it.
I think this is a terriff forum and you guys are great!
With thanks again, Jim.

Rollin Rog:
With ref. to my virus problem, I used a little bit of "uncommon sense" and figured if they were in quarantine they sure weren't doing me any good there. I went to The Norton Anti-virus program and deleted all of them. I'll let you know if the roof caves in. Thanks again. Jim
