Update on SpyFalcon

SpyFalcon, the infamous trojan continues to mutate. A new variant of this parasite has appeared recently. The threat works in exactly the same manner, but this time it creates a few different malicious files – dfrgsrv.exe and ginuerep.dll. They can be found in the default system folder, which is one of the following: C:\Windows\System, C:\Windows\System32, C:\Winnt\System32. Manually deleting these files should help getting rid of the infection. Use the Pocket KillBox tool for this.

SpyFalcon manual removal instructions have been updated.

    The problem im having is with what is calling itself “topadwarereviews.com” It has placed an icon in my system tray and keeps popping up telling me i have a spyware virus. It’s driving me crazy. I’ve ran two spyware programs and it still won’t get rid of it. I’m at my wit’s end here. I think im going to just have to reformat the computer and be done with it. If anyone has suggestions please let me know!

    this spy falcon bs, is really pissing me off. here’s how i think that i got SF. recently i had to have my computer restored at a computer repaire place. after getting it repaired and brought back home,i noticed the guy at the repaire place added me some spyware protection files….. such as adware/ nortion’s anti-virus, and spy bot. anyway, about 2 weeks after the repair this spy falcon s— started popping up. i belive that computer guy set me up for this, why?? to get me to have to come back in to have him remove it etc….. and charge me out the ying-yang to remove spy-falcon.

    Scott I’m sorry to hear about what happened to you and your prob. right, the sad fact is that there are some shopes that will do that, but there are a few honest ones out there to. I’m the lead tech at a shope and we do leave some things on a computer but what we leave are programs that we have tested and know they work and most of all they are FREEWARE!!, and spyware and adware free. You mentioned he put nortons on there well first this is not freeware and secound unless you requested that it be put on he should have never done so. Its shopes llike that, that gives us all a bad name, but as you may know word of mouth is the best advettisment, it can make you or break you, if you know what I mean.

    Managed to delete SpyFalcon after much frustration and many tries. Norton Antivirus (Symantec), Windows Defender ?€“ Beta 2 (Microsoft), and Ad Aware (Lavasoft) all seemed to work about equally well. All left ginuerep.dll untouched. The latter two are free. IMPORTANT: The computer must be in the COMMAND PROMPT version of Safe mode to delete ginuerep.dll, since the file continues to run in the GUI versions and can?€™t be deleted. Also, ginuerep.dll can?€™t be unregistered ?€?cause it isn?€™t registered. Don’t recall encountering dfrgsrv.exe.
