Propagation

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 Worm'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:1500
    AppLaunch.exe:852
    reg.exe:1692
    reg.exe:708
    reg.exe:1684
    reg.exe:500

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

    %Documents and Settings%\%current user%\Application Data\Log (33 bytes)
    %Documents and Settings%\%current user%\Application Data\bshades.exe (59 bytes)
    %Documents and Settings%\%current user%\Templates\CertPolEng.exe (4 bytes)
    %Documents and Settings%\%current user%\Local Settings\Temp\panmap.exe (1281 bytes)

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

    [HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "Certificate Policy Engine" = "%Documents and Settings%\%current user%\Templates\CertPolEng.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.
