Hi, I want to let you know that I got the trojano also. I doubt that it is fully gone, but, I haven't seen any alerts for 6 hours. I downloaded all of the programs I am about to mention and then disconnected the internet. TrojanHunter, TrojanRemover, a-Squared, AVG, Spyblaster, Spybot, Ad-Aware, and Avast, I think I am missing one or two. But, I first ran Avast doing a boot time scan, then I ran a-Squared, AVG, Ad-Aware and Spybot all at once. Then the others. THe virus popped back up after my screaming fit, I chose delete on the Avast alert, then rebooted immediately and did another boot time scan using avast. I currently have a-Squared, AVG, Avast and Torjan HUnter running in the system processes, and I also use Sygate firewall. Maybe I am overdoing it, but it's not bugging me now...

Anyway, I'm not done yet, I also used a registry repair program I found on Then finally, I inserted the Windows XP disc and typed sfc /purgecache. It was a quick little blip, then I typed sfc /scannow. That repairs the necessary Windows files that the trojano made me delete. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if it did. [][/url] or if you can still use AOL IM emileeb49 BTW, I can't install a current version on AIM, I had to install an old one. *pout*

Good luck!!

Well, it is now 8 hours from the time I thought it was surely clean, and it came back. I guess my method just keeps it from multiplying in the system until you run one of the programs it screwed with. It got roboform, aim and java for me, I don't know how I'm gonna fix these, but I need to block java from connecting to the net. and it seems to use aim somehow. a-squared got me to realize that, it asked my permission and dummy me let lava connect. So put your firewall on a stronger setting that you have to allow everything access. Then I suggest waiting it out until the computer geniouses figure out a cure for this one.

I to was infected by trojano 1079, missed by Norton but uncovered by Avast - running these together meant that Norton was monitoring on line, and Avast was discovering the virus off line. Removed Norton and then logged on and Avast running as the main on-line monitor caught the trojan as it tried to download itself when accessing the web using Internet Explorer, and switched me off-line to protect, the virus not being downloaded. Using Firefox browser I could surf web normally with no virus alert.

Investigated further and noted that my Internet homepage setting had been changed to About:Blank - here I think lies the problem. Check if you have About:Blank here, if so the way I cleared (so far!) the problem of trojano 1079 appearing was by using CWShredder, a quick to download and free program. I found this info by searching web for "About:Blank" rather than "trojano 1079".

After running this small program 1 file was discovered - I think CWSAboutBlank and deleted using program, I also cleared temp internet files and cookies, before going back on line first using Firefox, then Internet Explorer - horray no trojano 1079 alert this time around! Would recommend that you run CWShredder before going on line using IE to ensure this nasty time-wasting trojan still remains 'shredded' (its wasted hours of my time to get this far!)

Good luck and happy surfing again, Tom

Here I am again, and my computer has been clean for about 2 days now. AVG Free has the complete fix for the Trojano1079. I just had it somewhat contained before when I posted.

I, too, had the Trojano 1079 virus. I may have also had some other problems because I was unable to access any Windows programs such as Control Panel and Windows Explorer. I could surf the Net, use email and even use my other programs like Quicken and even MS Word. My homepage was hijacked to "about:blank".

I first tried Symantec's on-line scanning tool. It pointed me to several adware files on my PC but did not mention Trojano 1079 (avast! told me I had the Trojano 1079). When I actually tried using Symantec's "kill" programs for the specific adware files, Symantec told me those files were not on my PC.

I disconnected the internet connection. Tried CWShredder - found nothing. Tried SpySubtract - found nothing. Using Hijack This!, noticed and removed a line that contained "about:blank". Then ran AdAware and found one file. I deleted cookies, temp files and history. Ran avast! and it did not find any infected files.

On reboot, Win32:Trojano 1179 (not a typo) came up in avast!. IE still tried auto opening as it did w/ "about:blank".

Rebooted again. No virus or trojan horse notices came up.

Reconnected to the Net and downloaded AVG and ran a scan. It found viruses. I healed them, and ran AVG again. AVG came back clean. So far, no further problems.

In my "Favorites", I did find several "odd" bookmarks. The addresses were very strange and ended in things like ".cc" Even found a folder that was not mine. I had tried deleting those over the past week but was unsuccessful (they would come back after I closed "Favorites"). After AVG gave me a clean bill of health, I was successful in permanently removing these bookmarks and folder.

Thanks to all for posting your experiences. AVG is my new best friend!

I also found that at system turn-on, windows messanger loaded its self and then my virus alarms would stsrt going off. I had manually gone in and removed messenger from my system months ago. I have now blocked messenger from being hijack and loaded by other programs or viruses.

Go TO:

Good Luck; Crockett
