Technical Description:

 Trojan.Retapu.D is a downloader, it's task is to download additional pieces of malware from the internet and run them on the infected computer.

 It downloads this file:

http://XXX.a.wrs.mcboo.com/retadpu.exe

and executes it after downloading. After this step is completed Trojan.Retapu.D exits.

The newly downloaded file is copied into %windir% folder and then puts it into startup key so it runs at Windows startup everytime. It is  also a downloader but similar to an updater: transfers additional components of the Retapu family on the infected computer on a regular basis (as to keep them with latest 'versions').
