Summary



This virus spreads under Windows 95 systems. When an infected EXE is executed, it drops a VxD file. This VxD will be loaded when Windows boots and will infect any EXE files which are opened.



Removal



Automatic Disinfection

Allow F-Secure Anti-Virus to disinfect the relevant files.

For more general information on disinfection, please see Removal Instructions.



Technical Details



Sometimes the virus will fail and just damage EXE files instead of infecting them. Names of all infected files will be written to C:\LOG.LOG.

The virus contains these texts strings which are never shown:

SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\MrKlunky
        MRKLUNKY_DDB
		
		

Otherwise the virus just spreads.
