I found ezsidmv.dat in my system 32 folder in late May and from getting advice from bleepingcomputer staff I was told to delete it and I did so. It came back June 3 and deleted again. It didn't come till today I accessed skype. And from looking at other people's responses, it is supposed to be Not harmful and some how related to skype. Please reply, I'm looking forward to your reply :thumbsup: :flowers:

ezsidmv.dat is not a friendly file.
I see, you created couple of topics in "Am I Infected?" forum, but you never replied back to your helpers.

With the information you have provided I believe you will need help from the malware removal team. I would like you to start a new thread and post a DDS log HERE and include a link to this thread. Please make sure that you read the information about getting started before you start your thread.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient. Help is on the way!

I'm scared enough as is. Is it ok if I back up the system, use defogger and run the DDS? And also are these files safe to use? The last thing I want is someone sneaking through my files. Sorry if I am being mean, I'm scared to death and very doubtful of my computer.

After some reseach, Ihave found out that this file is related to skype and have contacted them about this. If they say no, rest assured I will run my ass to my laptop and run DDS. PLS NOTE THAT IAM NOT IGNORING YOUR DIRECTIONS, BUT FINDING A VARIETY OF ANSWERS. sorry if I am seeming hard headed.
