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 action

Once detected, the F-Secure security product will automatically disinfect the suspect file by either deleting it or renaming it.

More scanning & removal options

More information on scanning or removal options is available in the documentation for your F-Secure security product on the Downloads section of our Home - Global site.

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.
