Summary

Win32/Parite is a family of polymorphic file infectors that targets computers running Microsoft Windows. The virus infects .exe and .scr executable files on the local file system and on writeable network shares. In turn, the infected executable files perform operations that cause other .exe and .scr files to become infected.
It is not possible to recover manually from Win32/Parite. Consult your antivirus software vendor for specific directions for removing this Trojan.
