I repeatedly have "Threat" warnings popping up on my computer The virus name is listed in the Threat messages as Trojan horse Generic9AAVJ.
path = C:\Windows\system32\d3d8th.dll
filename - d3d8th.dll

In my computer's registry this file is now located in 2 places; in Key
Classes and in Local Hardware; both of the entries are identical as below
for the Local Machine listing:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{6B490700-8DBE-4DDB-AF25-B9B499FDC33F}\InprocServer32
(Default) REG-SZ C:\Windows\system32\d3d8th.dll
ThreadingModel Reg=SZ Apartment

Using AVG to heal this virus or put it in a vault or delete it does no good. Running SpybotSD did no good. Its scan identified 141 things wrong but after they were all presumably fixed, the Threat warnings continued plus I was then unable to access the Internet. I had to do a full recovery in Spybot to regain the ability to get back on the Internet. The file d3d8th cannot be deleted from Windows Explorer. I am wary of deleting its locations in the registry. I assume the th stands for trojan horse. Do you think I should delete it in the registry? This file and its registry entries are not present in an identical computer also running xp in my house.
