    INFECTED DLL FILE

    Locked

    by galehickey2 ·

    I had a wsock32.dll file that was “trojanized”.Got a good file and went into safemode and attemted
    to delete bad file-no soap-box poped up that windows uses it and could not be deleted. Tried the same thing with copying. Same thing. Was under the impression that windows was not running in safemode. At any
    rate I have win98 and if you could me I would apreciate it. I could care less about my situation other than I don’t want to send something to someone else that would attach itself and mess their computer up.
    THANKS-

      If your intent is to just replace this file, boot from a Win98 boot disk, then delete it and copy your new file into it’s location.
      I would seriously be considering a fdisk, format, and reload of my system, but then again, that is just me…
      Anyways, hope it helps…

      Some trojans will set the file attributes to prevent deletion or copying

      as caller 1 above said, boot with a win95 or win98 bootdisk, then change to the c:\windows\command directory and type
      “attrib -r -s -h c:\windows\system\*.dll

      put thefull path the the dll in question, and the *.dll should be replaced by the full name of the dll.

      There is easier way.
      Run SFC (System File Checker) utility
      Start/Run – type SFC
      Choose “Extract one file from installation disk”
      type the file name (with extention)
      click Start
      specify location of installation files and click OK

      Hope it helps, it helped me a lot

      Several viral attacks may corrupt the files you mentioned (“Trojans” are just a group). As you don’t mention the virus name found, I can’t give an exact solution, as more than the mentioned file(-s) may be corrupted. “Happy99”, though, is the most common to infect this way.

      Follow this link at Symantec and find the tool suited for your “removal”:
      http://www.sarc.com/avcenter/tools.list.html
      Read (copy) the instructions before attempting to clean your system.

      Once again, this shows how important it is to have a good and updated antivirus program running at all time. An updated program have a database not older than 1-2 weeks!

      I’m rather surpriced that most attacs I see, is from “old” well known viruses….

      Hoping you get rid of the problem this time.
