clkoptmizer adware

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Ray Wesley Kinserlow Jr., Feb 6, 2005.

  1. I have been trying to clear my cousin's computer network of a
    particularly vicious adware/virus that Spyware Sweeper calls
    Clkoptmizer. It installs itself in memory and in the MBR and Boot
    Sector. Spyware Sweeper identifies the file that is responsible as
    "aenbao.dll" and couldn't delete it. I went to a cmd prompt and found
    the file in "C:/Windows/System32." I attempted to delete the file and
    was denied access to it. When I boot up from the operating system
    disk and go to the recovery screen, if I select recover it asks for an
    administrator password, something he has never had. How do I get rid
    of this file? I am trying to get around a complete reinstall of the
    operating system. Apparently this thing proliferates itself over a
    network since I found the same virus on his daughter's computer
    connected through a wireless connection. This is no longer a problem
    since I discovered he no longer has the operating system disk for it.
    We are buying a new "xp home edition" on Ebay and I will install a new
    system on her computer when it arrives.

    ...which means that it also will get zapped with the same virus over
    their loco (pun intended) net.
