Adware 6 fails to delete p2esock_1012.dll

I have run ADWARE 6 (build 6.181) a few times and it keeps finding p2esock_1012.dll. I select it for deletion and Aware seems to lock up and does not delete p2esock_1012.dll. :D

I have got it in the quarantinee section in Adware and rename the offending file p2esock_1012DZZ. This does not seem to be affecting the system at the moment. :D

Can some please tell me what is happening, what is p2esock_1012.dll and how can I get rid of it? Thanks. <_<

Hey thesmiff and welcome to Geeks to Go!

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

Hello again,

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.

I'm not seeing the p2esock in your HJT log. Is it still coming up in Ad-Aware?

<_< YES!! You guys are wonderful!!!!! :D

I did what you said, and when I ran Adware it deleted it this time, even though I had renamed the file from a DLL to DZZ extension. :P

By the way, what is CRACKSPIDER.NET :D
