Name %winsystem%\internat.exe


W32/Protoride-H is a Windows worm that spreads via network shares.
The worm also has a backdoor component that allows a malicious user remote access to an infected computer via the IRC network.
This worm can also copy itself into the shared folders of several peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing utilities.

Copy itself into the Windows system folder as INTERNAT.EXE and set the following registry entries so that it is executed automatically upon restart:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\ "" = \"%1\" %*

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\ Windows Taskbar Manager = C:\\internat.exe

In order to run automatically when Windows starts up the worm may change the following registry entry so that it is executed before any EXE files:
HKCR\exefile\shell\open\command\ "" = C:\ "%1 %*"

W32/Protoride-H may also set the registry entry: HKLM\Software\BeyonD inDustries\ProtoType[v3]

Use antivirus (also check How To Remove section)Startup Optimizer to remove it from your system.
