Users comments about Win 7 Home Security 2012:

I had this same virus but instead of ppn.exe it was under EIO.exe. Might be a 3 letter executable that it installs randomly.
I got this virus too, but mine used rys.exe
I agree with poster 1, on my system the executeable was gaf.exe, so look for a three letter executeable.
David M.
I could not remove this malware using the techniques or software above (but I also found the executable files were egl.exe and rmf.exe). my pc is running windows 7 and i was able to clean my computer by doing a system restore to a version that i knew was before i got this virus.
Mine was xfs.exe
I do agree with the 3-letter executable, but also look in the description of the process. If it is in Arabic, it is the virus. Also i cannot find the files i need to delete, help?
exe file may also be named sty.exe

Thank you for the removal instructions.
It wont let me start security center now!
And I cant find it under services. When I installed the virus it deleted 2 files! :(
what now?
Ive had this on 2 vista business machines and one windows 7 enterprise machine. Much like the other mentioned, the three letter naming system appears to be true. The last named version was "htp.exe." Also, in some instances you may need to fix the class handler for .exes in the registry. An important similarity with each of these instances Ive found were that they all shared a common link to some resource of Windows Media Player, (direct show maybe but I forgot since the time of when I last worked on these issues, my apologies). The source of the windows 7 version I traced back to a rogue java temp package. Hope it helps!
iyi.exe the bast*rd
I got infected nad hijacked about 30 min ago, when all else failed, i used stytem restore to flush it out of my computer, and a VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: you CAN run certain antivirus programs by selecting them and clicking "run as administrator"
Thanks. Ill try that.
