trz####.tmp files are taking over my computer!

Post by Jyrroe on Wed 22 Sep 2010, 2:15 am

First topic message reminder :

I've had some virus problems lately but over night it got worse. When I stared up my compuer this morning, some of my desktop icon were missing and there were some files there called "trz[4 random alphanumeric characters].tmp". Right now I have Windows 7 x64 so I've copied some of my files to a portable hard drive, intending to wipe my computer and start over with Win 7, but apparently this virus is hiding somewhere in my files, because now I'm seeing missing files and trz####.tmp files all over my portable HDD too. I searched "trz" on it and came up with 237 results - on the portable hard drive alone - and it's growing in numbers, all of them created within the last hour.

I don't care about the virus on my computer anymore, since I'm wiping it, but how can I stop it from eating all my files before I end up just carrying this thing over to Win 7?

It's already deleted the .dll's for most of my games so I can't run any of them now, there go all my save files, and some of my documents are being eaten too.

HELP!

[EDIT:] Before this morning the virus consisted primarily of the internet redirecting to random other web pages, either when clicking a link on Google or occassionally when opening any window at all. It would also occassionally open Google in new window for no reason.

  • Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use

I'm thinking this isn't what you expected:

This is what I'm seeing now, should I do anything or just click "Finish"?

In answer to your question, I haven't gotten any virus alerts in some time (I know I turned avast! off a while ago, but for a while before that too).

Can I turn avast! back on now and see if it screams at me?

Hi.

Can you hit the list found threats button, and export that to a text file, then zip it up and attach it please?

I'm working on it, the virus ate my winRAR so I have to download something else to make a .zip file.

Hi.

How is your computer running now? See any more files of that name?

I find one now and then, but I just delete them, they aren't new, and avast! isn't reporting any more problems.

Everything appears to be back to normal (except the missing files and programs that won't start) but I did manage to save most of the files I wanted to to carry over to Windows 7.

Now I just need to get the internet working. But I already made a new thread about that elsewhere in the forum.

for your help! I've already started recommending this site to everyone I know. Saved me a lot of money from going down to the local tech store.

Hi,

We are not quite done yet, could you please run a ESET Scan again, Ramnit is a polymorphic file infector, and you seem to have a new variant.

Ooo, well shortly after I thought the problem was solved, I wiped my hard drive. So unless it got onto my portable drive, I think it's gone now. I wanted to be rid of that other trz####.tmp virus so it wouldn't carry over on my portable drive.

Hi.

You might want to check the portable drive too as ramnit can infected one if it was inserted. Try running a scan on it and see if it finds anything.
