What is a Win 32.downloader.gen ?

I run Spybot Search & Destroy in administrative to get rid of it.

After Spybot is finished scanning it says it's gone. The next time I run Spybot it's back.


How do I get rid of it?

    1. Remove the registry entries hidden by Win32.Downloader.gen.Trj

    If you notice that the programs on your computer are running abnormally, please check the following entries in the Registry, and directly delete the spyware-related registry entries if found.



    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software \Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion \RunServicesOnce



    HKEY_CURRENT_USER \Software \Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Policies\ Explorer\Run

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft \Windows\ CurrentVersion

    Explorer/ShellFolders Startup="C:\windows/start menu/programs\startup

    2. It is possibly a way to load the "Win32.Downloader.gen.Trj" malicious programs, by hiding within the system WIN.INI file and the strings "run=" and "load=", so this must be carefully checked.

    3. Clean up “IE Temporary File folder” where the original carrier of spyware threats is likely stored.
