I have 5 systems currently running Windows 7 x64 and they all contain RDVGHELPER.exe in System 32.

All my systems have been scanned many times for malware with no indications that this file is such, however as pointed out above, it can be.

Did you read my "entire" post? If so, why the silly reply? If information posted is inaccurate, it only adds to a probelm and provides no benefit. Again the file its self is not malicious. However, if it becomes infected it may/will be. It is present on my system with a valid MD5 Hash.

This could be the file ... rdvghelper.exe - What is the rdvghelper.exe? (id:1264429)

Before deleting it, upload the file to Jotti's malware scan and have it scanned for malware

The name is RDVGHELPER. I believe it is an .exe file but in system32, it doesn't have .exe. Thanks and can you help me delete this file pls.
Hello Titi,

It's not showing the .exe file extension for you since you may not have the Hide extensions for known file types box unchecked in Folder Options.

If your RDVGHELPER.exe file has the same size, file version, and MD5 and SHA1 hash as below, then it's probably safe. I have this file in my System32 folder as well.

SHA1
01FB2D0210F1C47AAF684E31A9FB78F89BBA9C0F

MD5
53FDA4AF81E7C4895357A50E848B7CFE

I never stated that "anyone" was incapable of knowing how to reply. I simply posted that caution may be advisable when posting, so that a bad situation doesn't become worst; ie, don't remove a necessary system file because it "may" be infected. I suggested using "MBAM" to verify the file and not to capriciously remove it.

Anyone can make a mistake and that certainly includes me. I wasn't trying to be better than anyone else, just suggesting it is always a good idea to be careful when offering advise.
