Re: trojan.win32.startpage.fw

I keep getting a "failed to load" error.  Is that supposed to be typed all in 1 line?


MRHOP does not exist.  I was able to use the REGSVR32 command on MFPLAY.DLL but I get an "Access Denied" on MFPLAY.DLL when trying to delete it.

Re: trojan.win32.startpage.fw

That error means the bad file usually associated with that detection does not exist. Keep in mind that many scanners have different names for malware. This means that rogue malware trace found/removed by malwarebytes could be the same threat.

IF you are still getting a detection and have symptoms, I suggest getting a second opinion. Otherwise, you should just stop here.

I've listed links to 3 other major scanners below. It is HIGHLY unlikely all three scanners (5 including McAfee and MalwareBytes) would miss a real active infection.

Re: trojan.win32.startpage.fw

I updated my previous post to remove MFPLAY.DLL as on Windows Vista/7 it is a legitimate and protected file (used in Microsoft Foundation for Windows Media Player).

Please restore the file with the following command:

REGSVR32 %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\MFPLAY.DLL

I think it is just a false positive, but I will look into the links you provided.

Thanks for all the help.
