Technical Description:

   When first run the trojan copies itself to %UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\av.exe and launches this
copy which will delete the original file. A mutex will prevent multiple executions.
   It will add/modify '.exe' files related registry keys to ensure that it will be reactivated if, somehow,  was closed; any try of the user to start an executable will create another instance of the trojan:
     HKCU\.exe
          o (default) -> secfile
     HKCU\.exe\shell\open\command
          o (default) -> "%UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\av.exe" /START "%1" %*       
   
   The windows firewall settings will be lowered:
      HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\SharedAccess\Parameters\FirewallPolicy\DomainProfile
          o EnableFirewall -> 0x00000000
          o DoNotAllowExceptions -> 0x00000000
          o DisableNotifications -> 0x00000001
      HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\SharedAccess\Parameters\FirewallPolicy\StandardProfile
          o EnableFirewall -> 0x00000000
          o DoNotAllowExceptions -> 0x00000000
          o DisableNotifications -> 0x00000001
    
    Internet explorer StartMenu  entry will be also changed:
      HKLM\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\IEXPLORE.EXE\shell\open\command
          o (default) -> "%UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\av.exe" /START "%Program Files%\Internet                       Explorer\iexplore.exe"
