_total.exe What is it?

Discussion in 'Anti-Virus' started by piotor norton, Feb 18, 2006.

  1. When I examine the running processes in my Windows XP I find one
    called _total.exe .

    I'm suspicious because I keep getting requests for svchost.
    Some of the requests are for 219.146.161.10 which is a
    blacklisted site in beijing china.


    I have an awful lot of generic requests for svchost and I can't
    identify them.

    If I disallow them my computer can't browse.

    I'm running Outpost firewall.
    I run AVG anti-virus nightly and Ad-Aware about once a week but they
    don't find anything.

    Please submit a sample of "_total.exe" to Virus Total --
    http://www.virustotal.com/flash/index_en.html
    The submission will then be tested against many different AV vendor's scanners.
    That will give you an idea what it is and who recognizes it. In addition, unless told
    otherwise, Virus Total will provide the sample to all participating vendors.

    You can also submit a suspect, one at a time, via the following email URL...
    mailto:?subject=SCAN

    When you get the report, please post back the exact results.

    -------------------------------------------------

    Download MULTI_AV.EXE from the URL --
    http://www.ik-cs.com/programs/virtools/Multi_AV.exe

    To use this utility, perform the following...
    Execute; Multi_AV.exe { Note: You must use the default folder C:\AV-CLS }
    Choose; Unzip
    Choose; Close

    Execute; C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT
    { or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS }

    NOTE: You may have to disable your software FireWall or allow WGET.EXE to go through your
    FireWall to allow it to download the needed AV vendor related files.

    C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT -- { or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS}
    This will bring up the initial menu of choices and should be executed in Normal Mode.
    This way all the components can be downloaded from each AV vendor's web site.
    The choices are; Sophos, Trend, McAfee, Kaspersky, Exit this menu and Reboot the PC.

    You can choose to go to each menu item and just download the needed files or you can
    download the files and perform a scan in Normal Mode. Once you have downloaded the files
    needed for each scanner you want to use, you should reboot the PC into Safe Mode [F8 key
    during boot] and re-run the menu again and choose which scanner you want to run in Safe
    Mode. It is suggested to run the scanners in both Safe Mode and Normal Mode.

    When the menu is displayed hitting 'H' or 'h' will bring up a more comprehensive PDF help
    file. http://www.ik-cs.com/multi-av.htm

  3. Re: _total.exe continued

    I ran all the virus detectors sugggested by David Lipman and found and
    deleted a bunch of em. My computer runs a lot faster now. I've still
    got _total.exe idle.exe running in my task list but they
    don't seem to be doing any harm and a Google search doesn't point to
    them as a virus. Thanks David.
