OK. Just saw your image : yes its the CSC.exe problems again as posted by other users on the AVAST forums. (see link posted earlier)

Look out for Corinne's post/s when she visits here - her suggestions/advice/instructions should take precedence over anything else.

Regards,
Golden

Try those 3 steps I outlined above, and then report back. I'm going to ask Corinne (one of the resident security experts) to have a look at this too. Please follow all her instructions.

Golden

EDIT : I've asked Corinne to have a look at this when she gets some time. Please be patient as she may be busy with other things. We will sort you out - dont' worry
Thank you. I'm in no hurry and going nowhere except to get some sleep. Its just gone past 3.10am here. Will check in when I'm up and about.
Thanks for the Avast forum too, interesting reading. Have registered and will watch proceedings.

Cheers, and have a good day.

ooooo, Malware scan completed



For some reason (you may be able to rectify), I click on the link to run the online scan you suggested and nothing happens?

I'm running MSE now, and prelim scan shows that malicious or potentially unwanted software might exist on my computer. Will let you know more after scan completes. (& yes I'm supposed to be hitting the mattress, but I have to fix this... lol)

Hi, Willowhoop.

I see you also posted in the Avast thread. Good move. As you will see from that thread, there has since been an Avast definitions update and members are now reporting they are no longer receiving the warning.

That said, the .dll's you posted in your screen capture plus the fact that MBAM identified a trojan leads me to believe a combination of issues here, first the Avast f/p t hat appears to have been rectified and second, what MBAM has detected as a trojan.

I suggest you allow MBAM to quarantine what was found and update Avast and see what the results are. If problems persist, I suggest a System Restore to prior to the Windows Update, followed by an updated MBAM scan. Then update Avast to the latest definitions. When you are certain your computer is clean, check again for Microsoft updates.

I also would suggest this because that way you will be out of windows and they will be unlocked to delete...

Hi Willow,

In summary, you had a mixture of false positive (FP) from Avast, and an unrelated trojan picked up by MBAM.
Please follow Corinne's suggestions. If you need help with any of that then please post back here.

Golden

I too am learning a lot. I spend time just reading through posts, not to be a nosy dora, but to hopefully learn more, and I think I do. I love Win7, never thought I'd move away from XP, but Win7 is by far a more superior OS in all ways. Having it, and a beaut new PC has motivated me to learn more.

I nearly forgot to mention that I couldn't get Eset to run last night, its running now. MBAM has quarantined the trojan, and all seems well now. I will only post the Eset scan if I have an queries.

Thank you again hun
