I have WinPartol running on my winxp system to help prevent junk like this from automatically running. So it is WinPartol that keeps poping up a warning about this file trying to run itself. Here is what information WinPartrol gives me.
C:\WINDOWS\system32\awvts.dll which is an Internet Explorer Helper.
Although WinPartol gives me options to delete files and or remove them - this same file keeps coming back no matter what I do.
I also have done searches on my boot drive for such file and it show nothing even though I have selected to look in hidden files as well within the search options.
I also have opened Explorer and went to the above loacation where the file is supose to be but I find nothing there by the name of awvts.dll.
I have rebooted into Safe Mode and ran Hijackthis and found 2 files that pertained to this awvts.dll and checked them both and told Hijackthis to fix the checked items but I still get the same popups.
I would be very grateful if someone could walk me through how to get rid of this pesky critter. Thank you in advance and God bless.
