I am "up" 3 Trojans, and "missing" 3 dll files (as notified by Windows XP). The Trojans seem to have taken the dll files as hostages when they were quarantined. I am not very computer savvy,,just a mere tinker-er, but I have listed information that seems to be necessary.
McAfee SecurityCenter, subscription current, version not listed under properties. Updates installed 3/18/11
I finally found this list last night:
03/02/11-Detection name: TROJAN Artemis 87D193951EE6 IS QUARANTINED with dll file: WMVZINET .DLL
03/09/11-Detection name: TROJAN Hiloti.gen.r IS QUARANTINED with dll file: ugezurowovoxad .dll
03/10/11-Detection name: TROJAN Hiloti.gen.r IS QUARANTINED with dll file: a0083084 .dll
Detected by McAfee Secuity center.Option to send to McAfee is available, BUT, if I send each and/or all to McAfee for removal, will it ALSO remove the NEEDED dll files?
I have not turned computer off, letting it go into sleep mode.Rebooting and/or shutting computer down repeats missing dll messages on restart, or added yet another Trojan.
I will gladly send these TROJANs off to McAfee for removal once I am certain the dll files will NOT be removed as well. If that is not possible, I need to know where to find 'replacement' dlls and HOW to reinstall. I am eager to restore things to 'normal' and run a full scan. Thank you in advance...profusely
I read the document that you recommended, installed stinger and ran a scan of everything (over 6 hours). Stinger found 2 Trojans with (different names) and deleted them. There are no Trojans listed under 'Quarantined Potentially Unwanted Programs'. The first part of the problem has been resolved, and I appreciate your helpful advice. Thank you.
After shut down and restart, however, I am still getting pop-up notice of missing dll file
I am not sure those are ligit dll files.They look randomly named.I am sure after you follow instructions from Tom.Soon you will be pointed in the proper direction.I did a search for the 3 dll`s and did`nt find anything.There was 1 hit on the last 1.But it seems to be posted in a hijack this log.Message was edited by: newjack on 3/19/11 8:48:31 PM EDT
If you delete the detections whatever the infection is attached to will be deleted.
You could reinstate them after disabling VirusScan and re-submit them for manual analysis as per: https://community.mcafee.com/thread/2016
Thank you for your input, however, it seems to be a matter of locking the door after the Trojan -and perhaps his hostage- are already out. I am nonetheless, better prepared for any future invasion(s).
I am apparently in need of reinstating a dll file, and will read your suggestion
I had not even considered that the missing dll files might be bogus, and that was a helpful insight as well. The image above is still being displayed on startup, however.
