Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

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.

Cant get automatic updates from mirosoft.cant down load .cant find rundill 32 exe.cant find help suport .


What is rundll32.exe? Is rundll32.exe spyware or a virus?
This program is part of Windows, and is used to run program code in DLL files as if they were within the actual program. However, many viruses also use this name or similar ones. This file is also commonly used by spyware to launch its own malicious code.
Note: The rundll32.exe file is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. In other cases, rundll32.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm!

If you don't have this file in System32 then you have other problems. Possibly a virus is onboard.

Have an Acer Aspire One Pro (8.5" screen). It worked well, but today it started to give an exception error (wouldn't execute lsass.exe). Any options.


It may be virus related. The The Sasser worm exploited a vulnerability in LSASS to spread via a remote buffer overflow in computers running Microsoft Windows XP and Windows 2000. The worm is particularly potent in that it can spread without any interaction with humans, nor does it 'travel by email' like many other worms.

I would start your computer in Safe Mode and run a virus scan to see it picks anything up.

Rundll64.dll.vbs virus in my pc


The worm copies itself to the root folder of writable drives, and adds an autorun.inf file in an attempt to execute itself when the drive is mounted.

When run, the worm copies itself to <Windows>\RUNDLL64.dll.vbs

The following registry entry is created to run RUNDLL64.dll.vbs on startup:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
MSConfigs
<Windows>\RUNDLL64.dll.vbs
So, when you will click on any drive it will not be open it just try to run that INF file.

If you have any anti virus scan your system or click here for a free demo of Avira Anti Virus Sacanner.

Thanks
