SpySheriff displays secure32.html - where does Secure32.html come from?

My computer got infected with Spysheriff and I was able to remove it. But it still shows a blue background and the bogus warning as the background - which is set up in file c:secure32.html. When I delete the file, it comes back. Where does this Secure32.html come from?


The file secure32.html is generated by a program called Paytime.exe.
Paytime.exe is located in C:\WINDOWS\system32\paytime.exe

How to solve this problem:
  1. Bring up your taskmanager by pressing Control + Alt + Delete, in some Windows versions select the 'Processes' tab. Then click on 'Paytime.exe' and end the task.
  2. Delete paytime.exe, which you should find under c:WindowsSystem32
  3. Delete c:secure32.html
  4. Run Explorer. It will tell you that it cannot find the path for secure32.html. Use the default configuration of Explorer and everything will be OK.

One important thing!
if you are more than one user at the pc, you wil have to mark the box down in the right corner of 'processes', and shut down: paytime.exe from both users, or you can not delete the file.

Right now, I got nailed last night. Has hosed my PC with spyware galore. Deleting Paytime.exe, secure32.html, and badmanpro.exe does not do the trick. You will still get the annoying virus pop-ups, and attempts at email sending. The only way to temporarily stop the pop ups as I have found while trying to clean your system is to turn off your virus scanner, unplug your internet connection, and DO NOT OPEN IE.

Adaware does not find this malicious and down right stupid spyware. This should be a crime as it does nothing but possible damage to one's PC....................

If I find a solution, I will post. Looks as if you're looking at a huge mess. The registry will need to be manually cleaned, default IE settings which are very deep needs to be reset (possible reinstall of IE), and I have not figured out how to get my desktop to stop showing that pesky blue infection screen.

I am considering reporting this program to the authorities...............If I have no choice but to reformat and spend countless hours insalling and reconfig. all my games, software, ect I will go off.

Here is a good link with alot of info........Have found with research a dll file keeps this alive. When I get home and try the suggestions from the below link, I will report the success. I would suggest this looks like not an average PC user method, however.
