My Father has somehow managed to get his brand new Win 7 64 bit PC infected by the Tango.exe trojan
He assures me that he has been careful with his download sites !!
I have searched for this nasty and have come up with no simple way of dispatching it
Short of rebuilding his PC again - is there a removal tool to help ?
OK - Downloaded, installed MALWAREBYTES and full scan run - nothing picked up
Every time the computer is switched on a panel appears. It says “do you want the following programme from an unknown publisher to make changes to this computer? “ Programme name “Tango.exe”. Of course the answer is "no" and when this choice is clicked the panel disappears.
Tango appeared from nowhere.....
Tango is not a program in the add/remove programs nor on the program list
When googled - it appears that others are having a similar problem
AVG and MS Security Essentials (installed and run independantly) pick up nothing too !!
