HELP!!!! / mstrnk32.exe

By Wilson Peralta ·
My network has been infected with the mstrnk32.exe file. It's bringing my network down to a halt. All my servers and workstations have been infected. Has anyone else had this same problem? Norton's Anti-Virus doesn't seem to catch it. Where can I have this file analyzed to see where it came from?

mstrnk.exe is a spyware program, Norton doesnt detect it because it is not a virus.

Use a program such as Ad-Aware, and it should delete it. If it doesnt work, you would need to delete it manually.
