Split from this thread.
Hi, I know this is an old issue BUT the Trojan:DOS/Alureon.J just showed itself on one of my computers.
That PC runs MSE which keeps finding the Trojan and quarantining it but then moments later or on the next reboot it finds it again and quarantines it again.
I cannot remove it from MSE.
I have run TDSS, Combofix, JunkwareRemovalTool (JRT), MS Malicious Software Removal tool, AdwCleaner, HitManPro, Malwarebytes (MBAM) and searched the registry for any related entries in a manual attempt to delete files related to it - nothing found.
Scans performed in normal and Safe Mode, As Administrator all to no good outcome.
I am currently re-running the MS Mal. S/W removal FULL SCAN in Admin. mode but that will likely take hours.
MSE is the only product that even identifies it but it does not remove it! Possibly it has evolved from 2013 and now defeats MSE as well.
If you are willing to re-address this I would appreciate suggestions other than reformatting and reinstalling Windows.
Thank you for the time spent.
