Success at last! Ok - but i'm only part way through this. I scanned the file you suggested and it is virus free. Now i've located it and am ready to copy but where am i copying it? I'm back in the c:\windows\system 32 but don't see the dll cache folder? Am I missing something? (most likely:)

Sounds like you don't have that one...

We need to make sure all hidden files are showing so please:* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View Tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.
If you still can't see it, try creating it.

Ok - I have good news and bad news...

The good news is the virus is no longer there!!! No indication from MacAfee that it is on my computer.

Now, the bad news. Apparently, the swap disabled something. I keep getting messages like this

"Mcupdate.exe-Entry point not found
The procedure entry pount SHRegGetValueW could not be located in the dynamic library link SHLWAPI.dll"


and now am not able to use itunes or get online (with aol). It sends several messages - all with the same second line but with several different headers. I've gotten one that reads "Waol.exe - no entry point found and a totally ridiculous "vf4gzhwljridpfxpvwfa24+defaultcfg+eeapp_antispywareApp_2.0.7: Aol.servicehose.exe"

Please advise!

Thanks!

:tazz:

See if you can uninstall AOL. Then reboot and re-install again.

Can you post me the content of the latest smitfiles.txt to see what the tool found?

I'll give it a shot. It also gives messages related to itunes as well. Should i also try uninstalling and reinstalling itunes? I cannot get rid of the messages simply by clicking on the ok button - they continuously pop up!

I'll send along the smitfiles results but it may take a day - i have to save them to cd and bring them back to work to upload them here.

Thanks!

Please don't do anything before I've seen the smitfiles.
