A worm can spread via removable drives. It writes its executable and creates "autorun.inf" scripts on all removable drives. The autorun script will execute the Backdoor's file once a user opens a drive's folder in Windows Explorer.


Remove it with Ad-Aware

  1. Click (here) to download and install Ad-Aware Free Antivirus.
  2. Update the definition files.
  3. Run a full scan of your computer.


Manual removal*

  1. Terminate malicious process(es) (How to End a Process With the Task Manager):

    AppLaunch.exe:1324
    DW20.EXE:1596

  2. Delete the original Backdoor file.
  3. Delete or disinfect the following files created/modified by the Backdoor:

    %Documents and Settings%\%current user%\Templates\vmnethcp.exe (7 bytes)
    %Documents and Settings%\%current user%\Local Settings\Temp\BioCredProv.exe (673 bytes)
    %Documents and Settings%\%current user%\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows\YUKMTbZijxPe.dat (314 bytes)
    %Documents and Settings%\%current user%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\desktop.ini (67 bytes)
    %System%\aerytn\javaj.exe (59 bytes)
    %Documents and Settings%\%current user%\Local Settings\Temp\dw.log (78 bytes)
    %Documents and Settings%\%current user%\Local Settings\Temp\BCD4D.dmp (295389 bytes)

  4. Delete the following value(s) in the autorun key (How to Work with System Registry):

    [HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "HKLM" = "%System%\aerytn\javaj.exe"

    [HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "HKCU" = "%System%\aerytn\javaj.exe"

  5. Find and delete all copies of the worm's file together with "autorun.inf" scripts on removable drives.
  6. Reboot the computer.

*Manual removal may cause unexpected system behaviour and should be performed at your own risk.
