As Microsoft declares, Virus.Selfish.B was first detected on March 5th, 2009, and we now know that this infection can also be detected with such names as Win32/Selfish.C, Win32/Selfish.I, Virus.Win32.Selfish.c or Virus:Win32/Selfish.B. The tremendously latent application can travel via such security cracks as spam email attachments, and can enter Windows systems so surreptitiously that you might fail to detect and remove Virus.Selfish.B in time, simply because it could be impossible to know that it is running inside your Windows. Of course, there are some symptoms that could help you recognize this malicious tool’s existence; however, this could happen after schemers attained your personal data or tricked out your money. The dangerous infection’s processes could be as secretive as the entire infection, and if you should blame “something” for cunning, high-risk processes, we suggest you take a look at xpnetdiag.exe, a worm that can bring extensive detriment to your digital data.
The secretive xpnetdiag.exe can be hidden from removal, but it is this particular file that you need to find and delete if you want to have Virus.Selfish.B removed. This file is also known by such alias names as 13779701.exe, xpnetd~1.exe, xpnetdg.exe, ptkdwplqv-273.pms.exe or _dptkdwplqv-273.pms. The malign executable is responsible for executing such unauthorized processes as registry’s reconfiguration, files’ removal, fake notifications’ release, login data theft, and creation of ports linking to remote servers. The application is very tricky, and it is very important you do not rush to delete it from your system. The reason behind this is that the name of this devious executable is stolen from an original Windows X (32-bit version) component, which can be found under C:\Windows\Network Diagnostic, and which could identify issues dealing with Internet connection.
The devious Virus.Selfish.B could also be based on the processes of another cunning, cloaked executable taskmgr.exe. This component can hijack authentic Windows’ processes, infect HTTP protocols, modify Firewall and other security tools that could help you detect and delete the infection, steal personal contacts, and use your accounts to initiate mass spam email attacks across the Internet. If you are not sure how to identify modified system’s files or distinguish between fictitious and legal components, taskmgr.exe is another file you should not rush to remove, especially if you have no previous experience with such tasks.
You can delete Virus.Selfish.B with automatic removal tools, and this option is by far much easier than manual solution, especially if you understand that you could do fatal mistakes with the removal of cloaked infection’s components.
