Tango.exe trojan


  • 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 ?

  • The infected executable name (in this case tango.exe) has no importance - the useful information is the trojan/virus family.

    Download MalwareBytes Anti-malware install it and run a scan. Install the free version - that is enough for one-time use.

  • 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 !!
