    Has anyone reported this to Spybot SD support so they are made aware of it and can fix it so it doesnt come up as a worm?

    Ill go ahead and do it and see what they say. You know a lot of people will just do a scan, see that and delete it because they will believe its a worm/virus because the scanner told them it was. I wouldve done it if I had not seen this post here.

    Hi, I'm new here on Windows SevenForums, and so far I'm loving it!

    I'm really glad I found this post!
    After checking my system for spyware, Spybot reported conhost.exe as a worm. I think I got a little scared and deleted the file right away. Now some programs aren't working as they should, I receive an cmd.exe error.

    Is it possible for someone to, please, upload the conhost.exe file?! If not, please, can anybody help me to restore the file so I don't have to reinstall my windows?


    Thanks in advance,

    Thanks in advance,
    Hello krypnik,welcome to Se7en Forums!

    Sorry you found out the hard way; we already knew it's a false positive.

    I had the file already to upload to you; but I'm limited by the forums upload size limit; because the file is too big to upload. I'm sorry.......Maybe someone with a bigger size limit will upload it for you.

    As Mr Grim suggested, have you tried a System Restore to a point before you deleted the file?

    Keep us informed!

    Hello Aaron.

    I just used this to make a copy of it to put in a zip; if that's what you're asking.

    Context Menu - Add Copy To Folder and Move To Folder

    Hi BFK..How ya doin?

    No, I mean I believe it's a prohibited thing to do, according to dmex, I saw him say it in a post a few days ago. I could be wrong though.

    Howdy, so far so good.

    I thought that's what you were asking/saying; believe me if anyone knows, it would be dmex.
