Black Box Keeps Appearing

Recommended Posts

Guest Billy

I get a windows sys96.exe that pops up on my computer. When I try to close the box I get a message that states the program has not completed its task.

Follow the instructions for your operating system:

 

Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000

Click Start, point to Find or Search, and then click Files or Folders.

Make sure that "Look in" is set to (C:) and that "Include subfolders" is checked.

In the "Named" or "Search for..." box, type:

 

hosts

 

 

Click Find Now or Search Now.

For each Hosts file that you find, right-click the file, and then click Open With.

Deselect the "Always use this program to open this program" check box.

Scroll through the list of programs and double-click Notepad.

When the file opens, delete all the entries in the Hosts file, except for the following line:

 

127.0.0.1 localhost

 

 

Close Notepad and save your changes when prompted.

Thanks for your recommondations, but I still keep having problems. Every hour or so a new *.exe application gets made. I have learned how to hold the SHIFT Key down and then hit the delete key to remove them. But, I still cannot find the source the of the Trojan. I am using WINNT operating system.
