I'm sorry if this is not the place to post this. But I was wondering what LSA Shell(export version) is as my firewall keeps telling me that LSA Shell(export version) wants to accept connections from the internet, should I allow it access?.

I have looked around for a definition but everything points me to sasser worm.

Any Help would be much appeciated.

I would venture that you are actually infected with Sasser. Take a look here and get the F-Sasser tool to disinfect your system.

After doing this, there are a number of things you can do do keep your system healthy:

On-line Virus Scanners:
Scan your pc with 2 of these free online scanners:
Panda ActiveScan
RAV AntiVirus
Housecall. Be sure to put a check the box beside AutoClean.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Download / Install / Update / and Run:
Adaware SE check for any updates before running it.
Get the plug-in for fixing VX2 variants. You can download it at this SITE
To run this tool, install to the hard drive, then open Ad-aware->Add-ons and select VX2 Cleaner. Then click Run Tool and OK to start it. If it's clean, it will say Status System Clean. Otherwise, you will have to click on the Clean button to remove the VX2 infection.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Download and install Spybot S&D . Run Spybot and click on the 'Search for Updates' button. Install any updates that are available. Next click on the 'Check for Problems' button. Let it run the scan. If it finds something, check all those in RED and hit the Fix Selected Problems button. Exit Spybot. If you keep getting the DSO Exploit entries, even after you updated Windows and fixed them, then download the Spybot DSO Exploit Fix and install it over the current Spybot installation.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

finally, Windows Updates

It is essential to keep your computer's operating system and programs in top condition. That means keeping up with applying patches, hotfixes and service packs. Make sure that your Operating System and Internet Explorer are up-to-date by visiting the Windows Update Site and downloading all of the Critical Updates and Service Packs.

Hi,

Thanks for reply.

Since first posting I have found it increasingly difficult to get online. I'm having to reinstall modem drivers, rebuild aol adaptors and repair aol connectivity service.

My OS is up to date and automatic updates on. I had used panda and housecall and avg and all found nothing on my system. I run spybot and adware regularly, again nothing noteworthy there. I ran the F-sasser tool, but it didn't give me any indication that Pc was infected.



I gather that LSA Shell shouldn't be looking to connect to the internet?

Thanks for the help
