Bropia.J is a worm that prevents the user from accessing the Task Manager and the Windows Registry Editor (REGEDIT.EXE file).
Once it is run, Bropia.J attempts to display an HTML page that contains a link to a certain web page hosted in the website www.freewebs.com, in order to display a picture called L0L_53XY_L0L.JPG.

Bropia.J is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
