Win32.PoeBot

Self-replicating worm, Win32.PoeBot is a major pest.  Losing a lot of steam on your PC will be your first clue of infection with this program.  Once it has gained entry onto your PC, it will drop a file, record your keystrokes, modify your registry and possibly even give access to a malicious third party.

The bad thing about these programs is that they will spread to other computers on your network without you even doing a thing!  Some of them can even disable your security software making it easier for them to spread themselves quickly.

    A few days ago my computer was infected with Win32.PoeBot and in a few hours it slowed down dramatically. I’ve tried deleting, moving, quarantine and several other options such as restores and such but I couldn’t remove it for good. SpyZooka is a great program and I appreciate the big help. Without it, Win32.PoeBot would still be here.
