Removing iosdt.exe:c
This is a very sneaky infection. In order to find and remove the it:
Open Control Panel > Folder Options
Click the View tab.
Under Hidden Files & Folders click "Show Hidden Files and Folders"
Next uncheck "Hide protected operating system files"
Reboot in Safe Mode (in XP press F8 before windows begins loading)
Open C:\WINDOWS\system32
Delete the Folders & files with iosdt in the name (there should be 1 folder,
iosdt, containing all the corrupt files) you may want to do a search for
iosdt to make sure everything is removed.
Empty the Recycle Bin.
Reboot in Normal Mode.

Hi

Install the free Agent Ransack and use it to search for iosdt.exe

Download it from here:
http://www.mythicsoft.com/agentransack/default.aspx


Alternatively:

Download Process Explorer from SysInternals (task manager on
steroids) and from it right click on iosdt.exe and select
Properties to see where it is located.
