Computers - crypts.dll a Windows file or a Virus/Worm?

I loaded a new virus scanner 'RemoveIT Pro' today as I was not able to
connect to major sites (like Yahoo, Gmail etc) today.

RemoveIT Pro claims to detect Viruses,Worms, Trojans etc and when it
scanned my xp system drive in System32 found two files which it said
were infected.
They were 'ccevtsvc.exe' and 'crypts.dll', while it cleaned/removed the
first; it could not clean 'crypts.dll' and asked me to check from safe mode.

I received the same message from safe mode and could not be removed, Ashampoo too could not remove as it was being used even in safe mode.

The 'crypts.dll' is an unknown application, with no info. whatsoever.
How can it be removed?
is it a Windows file?

Any help will be appreciated. I have disconnected the internet connection temporarily.

Is the file wmipruse.exe a virus or something that can be used to disrupt my laptop?


To avoid stopping all the services when a provider fails, providers are loaded into a separate host process named Wmiprvse.exe. Multiple instances of Wmiprvse.exe can run at the same time under different accounts: LocalSystem, NetworkService or LocalService. The WMI core WinMgmt.exe is loaded into the shared Local Service host named Svchost.exe.
Note: wmiprvsw.exe is the Sasser worm!
Note: The wmiprvse.exe file is located in the folder C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem. In other cases, wmiprvse.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm!

Some people have successfully cleaned out the stubborn worm, but since one of the primary functions of this virus is to disable security programs,so the method of using anti-virus program is not always a foolproof approach.
Please follow these steps to get rid of Pup.datamngr virus manually:
Step 1: Press CTRL+ALT+DEL or CTRL+SHIFT+ESC. Open the Windows Task Manager.
If that didn't work, try another way. Press the Start button and click on the Run option. This will start the Run tool. Type in taskmgr and press OK. This should start the Windows Task Manager
Step 2: Within the Windows Task Manager click on the Processes tab. Find the process by name. random.exe. Then scroll the list to find required process. Select it with your mouse or keyboard and click on the End Process button. This will kill the process.
Step 3: Delete malicious registry entries.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\random
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer\run\random
Step 4: Remove malicious files of Pup.datamngr virus

Following repair by an anti-virus file UACxitmtbjtwv.dll seems to have been damaged or removed, can you help? I need to replace / repair this file but don't have original discs, can I download? Regards,


I can't find any mention of this dll file anywhere. I believe that what you have is a remnant of a virus. I think it was a program that was set to run when Windows started up that probably kept reinfecting your computer with the virus and now that you have repaired the virus, this program is still trying to start but is missing that file. I would recommend running "msconfig" and going into the startup configuration and seeing if you can find any unfamiliar programs that are loading on startup. It will probably be a trial and error type of troubleshooting where you disable and enable them one at a time and try to find which program is causing that error message for that file when it loads. It could also be under "Start" "All Programs" >"Startup".

Trojan - antivirus-xp-pro-2009


Take my notes as a guide and hopefully this will work for you.

1. Start > Run > msconfig > “Start Up” tab > Disable All
2. “Services” tab > Check box “Hide Microsoft Services” > Disable All
2.5 Exit out, but don't reboot yet
3. Start > Right-click “My Computer” > “Properties” > “System Restore” > Check box “Turn off restore on Hard disks”
4. Start > Run > type %temp% > Edit Select All > Shift-Delete
Reboot machine
1. Combofix.exe. This program will run on its own. Also, it will likely wish to reboot the machine. Let it complete.
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe
2. WinSockFix.exe. This will fix any issues with the network connection.

3. SuperAntispyware.exe. This will remove all remaining spyware, tracking cookies, and browser hijackers.
Check to see that your favorite internet browser is working. Install or re-enable your favorite antivirus that failed to catch this in the first place.

Computer viruses


Viruses are programs that get into your computer environment without your knowledge and then use your computer to connect to other computers and install a copy of themselves in those computers adn thereby spread. Virus programs are usually not content to just spread. After replicating, a virus program may do a silly prank, harm to your computer by corrupting files or even destroy its ability to serve you. Virus programs may also give a hacker a back door into you computer and thereby allow the hacker to use your computer to clog other sites or to steal your identity. If you think you have one disconnect from the web immmediately and remove it with anti virus pattern recognition tools. Avoid the free ones. Use a major product that large companies depend on. An anti virus program can be a virus itself.
