MalwareBytes To The Rescue....Way To Go
Posted 16 October 2009 - 01:13 AM
I didn't believe these notices and took no action to click on the TrustSoldier entry line. Next, pop-ups began to appear at the lower edge of the screen. By then, it looked like I had an annoying problem and I didn't know how to get rid of it.
By the next day, full screen messages began to appear from TrustSoldier. It kept on repeating the options...do I want TrustSoldier to act on my problem, or do I want to ignore the threat. These full screen messages appeared every five minutes. I could not get any work done because these messages kept getting in my way.
I went over to Google to see if there were any TrustSoldier posts. There were a bunch of them, and MalwareBytes 1.4.1 was cited as an effective killer for TrustSoldier. However, I could not download MalwareBytes because our friend Windows Vista was blocking the download. I tried another anti-malware software package. This downloaded successfully, but I could not get the software to begin removing the malware that was infecting my computer.
The next day I tried to download MalwareBytes once again. This time, quite by accident, I got into a downloader that evaded the scrutiny of Windows. MalwareBytes downloaded and compiled successfully. The appearance of a MalwareBytes icon on my desktop was proof enough of a successful compile
It was now time to run the scan. This took slightly under two hours. 187 files were found that were infected Following the software along, this resulted in a list provided by Notepad. I ran the removal software and the computer re-booted. There was not any more sightings of Trust Soldier that day
The next day, I re-ran MalwareBytes. It caught only seven files that were infected. However, one of these files belonged to TrustSoldier. This indicated that TrustSoldier managed to hide out when the computer was getting "cleansed." I re-ran the Malware Bytes software and the TrustSoldier malware was now history

Nice to hear your problem was resolved by MBAM prog.

If you don't mind can you reveal the name of the downloader, because it will be useful in this type of situations, for us.

You will now find that you only need to run a quick scan to find if you are infected - That will find most problems and only take 5-7 mins -
The other main thing now is to always update (Malwarebytes anti malware) 'MBAM' every few days and especially prior to a scan -
If you are waiting for an answer Press F5 ................. you may have one waiting for you ........
